mms-1.0.9-patch33 packaged for Debian/Edgy (PLS test)

Postby Uatschitchun » Sat Feb 17, 2007 8:10 pm

Hi folks ...

I updated my packages for Ubuntu-Edgy to the latest state of development.

Don't wonder if the package has version 1.0.8.2-patch33 ... this is for beeing able to easily update to a coming 1.0.9 one day ;)

There's still a little work to be done for a releaseable package. Use at your own risk and remember: no risk, no fun :twisted:

How do I:

Go to http://www.prodeia.de/mms and fetch the latest deb, save it and install via:

Code: Select all

 dpkg -i package.deb


if you get dependency warnings, do a

Code: Select all

apt-get -f install

and redo

Code: Select all

 dpkg -i package.deb


Thus should fetch all missing packages!



What to do if I don't use Edgy?:

Easy ;)

put this line in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

and do a

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get build-dep mms


This should get all needed packages!

After this go ahead like described:
How do I build binary packages from a source package?

You will need all of foo_*.dsc, foo_*.tar.gz and foo_*.diff.gz to compile the source (note: there is no .diff.gz for some packages that are native to Debian).

Once you have them (How do I install a source package?, Section 6.13), if you have the dpkg-dev package installed, the following command:
dpkg-source -x foo_version-revision.dsc

will extract the package into a directory called foo-version.

If you want just to compile the package, you may cd into foo-version directory and issue the command
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b

to build the package (note that this also requires the fakeroot package), and then
dpkg -i ../foo_version-revision_arch.deb

to install the newly-built package(s).


The needed packages (*.dsc, *.tar.gz and *.diff.gz) are located at the same website (www.prodeia.de/mms)

Have phun and pls (!) comment ...

Do you plan to update to patch-39?
Anders removed the pixel-gap bug (didn't test it myself).
I would test it afterwards.

Regards,

Andreas

Sorry, there will be no patch-39!

Few things still need attention in the upstream ... I'll await these.
