ScottKgilbert: What was the bug again?03:52

ScottKThis is the xpdf one?04:08
ScottKIt would be very unusual for us to do this.04:08
* ScottK looks at the bug.04:09
ScottKgilbert: If I understand the bug correctly, 3.02-2 works and 3.02-11 doesn't, right?04:11
ScottKHave you reviewed the diff to see what might be the source of the problem?04:11
gilbertScottK: i'm the debian maintainer, and i converted the package to use poppler.  that works just fine on debian, but will not work on ubuntu for some reason.  my best guess is that there are issues with your fontconfig04:23
gilbertScottK: i'm just trying to help you all out so you don't ship a completely broken package04:23
gilbertScottK: i've recompiled lucid's 3.02-2ubuntu1 on maverick, and it works fine.  if i uploaded that as version 3.02-9+reverted3.02-2ubuntu1, would it be possible to get a freeze exception to include that working version in maverick?04:24
ScottKgilbert: I appreciate your efforts on our behalf.04:36
ScottKgilbert: Sure.  Are there no changes from -2 through -9 you'd keep?04:37

jo-erlendis there any particular way to file a bug on wrong dependencies for a package in universe?08:32
jo-erlendin Maverick, sync-ui depends on libedataserver1.2-11 (>= 1:2.6.1), but the only one available is libedataserver1.2-13, which makes sync-ui uninstallable.08:34
jo-erlendactually, it's syncevolution that depends on that one. sync-ui depends on syncevolution.08:36
jo-erlendperhaps this bug is related? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/syncevolution/+bug/60274808:38

alkisgHi, I'm making a package with .exe binary files that depends on wine. I'd go for "Architecture: amd64 i386", but I see that the wine package uses "Architecture: all" instead, and leaves its  dependencies (wine 1.2, available only for amd64/i386) to prohibit the users from installing it to other architectures. Which of the two approaches sounds better?08:46
pooliealkisg: i'm not an expert but perhaps the second?08:46
pooliethen if someone fixes it to work elsewhere with an emulator or something, it'll be ok08:47
alkisgMaybe there's also a possibility that sometime in the future wine will be available to other architectures via emulation, so maybe that's an additional reason to prefer "all"... thank you poolie08:47

bilalakhtarAnAnt: Everyone is saying this sentence!09:40
persiaPlease don't propagate it.  Much better to say it's down for a while.09:41
persiaTruly, we should be glad it's down: from what I've seen in the launchpad channels, it looks like it should be more robust when it gets back up (running lucid)09:41
bilalakhtarpersia: yes, it should, and will certainly be09:42
bilalakhtarProbably the servers were running hardy before?09:42
AnAntah, hope REVU will upgrade too09:43
persiaIt won't.09:43
bilalakhtarREVU just fixed an important bug09:43
persiaThere's no Ubuntu kernel that can run on the hosting machine.09:43
bilalakhtarthat 'Cannot unpack 3.0 (quilt) packages' bug09:43
bilalakhtarpersia: wha? No ubuntu kernel can run on web servers?09:44
persiaIf anyone has a spare machine they want to donate to ubuntuwire for REVU, then it can be fixed relatively easily, but I'd suggest waiting to see what happens with the new applications process first: having integrated backports+new apps with lots of extra bits and a selected body responsible for ensuring the process goes smoothly wouldn't be bad.09:44
geserbilalakhtar: REVU runs on sparc09:44
persiabilalakhtar, It's not about what REVU does: it's about the machine behind REVU.  Nobody made sparc work for lucid, so it can't upgrade.09:44
bilalakhtarAnd SPARC support is ceased, right?09:45
bilalakhtarfor maverick, I mean09:45
bilalakhtarIt was never supported, but09:45
bilalakhtarThe port has been removed from ports.u.c09:45
geseryes, what I've heard hardy was the last release that worked on sparc09:45
gesertherefore REVU was running hardy09:46
persiabilalakhtar, It is not true that sparc was never supported.09:46
AnAnthow about running Debian on REVU ?09:46
persiaJaunty worked for sparc.  karmic was mostly working, but getting weak.  lucid wouldn't go at all.09:46
AnAntDebian does support sparc, right ?09:46
bilalakhtarpersia: Is a new process going to be implemented for new packaged?09:46
gesera parallel process09:47
persiabilalakhtar, That's what I keep hearing.  I haven't heard great progress.  If something isn't clearer in the next six weeks, I'll hope we can find a way to revive and revitalise the old processes rather than adding a new one.09:47

hakermaniaHello all, I am trying to find a way uploading something to Revu. I know, you'll tell me that ubuntu is "frozen" right now, but I have to know! I know how to develop a .deb package, but as i saw other uploaders in revu.ubuntuwire.com upload tarballs, .diff files .changes files and so on. I have no idea what these are.. I really like my prog and I want to include it into the Ubuntu Software Center but I don't know where to start....14:27
RhondaIf you know how to develop a .deb package you should have a resulting .changes file, too.14:29
hakermaniaYeah, ok, and how about the .dsc and .diff files?14:30
RhondaThe .dsc and .diff gets generated if you do a full build, including source build.14:38
RhondaWhich is default anyway. Still no clue how you build without generating a .diff and .dsc :)14:38
hakermaniaOk, will I have your support while trying to build the package and generate all the important files? i am not a full-n00b, I swear! :P14:40
RhondaWhat tool do you use? debuild, pbuilder, cowbuilder - they all produce the complete set in the default usage, including source package and changes files.14:41
RhondaIf you mention what you use we might be able to tell you where things went wrong. :)14:41
persiaRhonda, There are a couple guides to be found on the internet that explain how to manually construct a binary .deb (yes, this is considered very poor practice, but often a source of confusion)14:45

hakermaniawhere do I place the unistall script in the tree of the debian package?19:09
hakermaniain DEBIAN folder?19:09
hakermaniaand If yes, with what name?19:09
ScottKhakermania: If you are looking at a DEBIAN folder, you are looking at a binary package and not a source package.  If you build a proper source package, it will take care of that for you.19:16
hakermaniaBut I am building a binary package.19:16
Rhondapersia: You mean like "create a directory with content that should be extracted into /, add a DEBIAN directory containing a control file with … and call dpkg --build tmp .."?20:08
Rhondahakermania: Erm, usind dpkg-deb --build is definitely not the proper way to build a Debian package. You need a debian directory in the source and that has to at least contain a changelog, rules file, copyright and control files.20:12
Rhondahakermania: dpkg-deb --build is used at the very end of debian/rules, and most of the times not even directly but through some helper tool.20:12
hakermaniaRhonda: I have made an app in C++ (I have a good knowledge of this) and i want it to make a deb package with the purpose of including this program to the Ubuntu Software Center! Unfortunately i have no idea how to do this. I am 2 hours now trying to solve the errors lintian "provides" to me on every effort on building the package. So, i am a little disappointed. What do you suggest?20:14
RhondaTo use a guide that helps you to create a _source_ package, not a .deb package.20:15
hakermaniaa tarball for example?20:15
RhondaI have no clue where you found the guide that suggests to go with dpkg-deb --build, this is the wrong approach.20:16
hakermaniaYeah, OK, but I need help making a tarball or something like this.20:16
hakermaniai don't care whether it is .tar.gz or .deb, i want it to be something :P20:17
RhondaA tarball is only one part of a Debian source package. A Debian source package contains of 2 or more files. The .dsc which is the source description file, a tarball (recently can even be more than one), and optional either a debian diff or a debian tarball containing the changes required for creating the Debian binary packages.20:17
hakermaniaWhat do you mean "creating the Debian binary packages" ?20:18
hakermaniathe .deb files?20:18
RhondaThe .deb files are the binary packages, yes.20:19
Rhondahakermania: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide seems to be an exhaustive guide that should be able to get you started.20:20
hakermaniaOk, so the tarball must contain the configure file, the make file, with $1 = install or $1 = unistall, and all the files needed that makefile plays with20:21
hakermaniathanks for the link by the way, but please answer me to this question to undewrstand a bit20:22
=== astralja1a is now known as astraljava
RhondaThe tarball contains all the files that are created by upstream, including makefiles or configure scripts. I'm not sure what you mean with $1 = install or $1 = uninstall.20:27
ari-tczewhow can I rename the file through bzr?20:28
ari-tczewbzr mv got it20:29
hakermaniaRhonda:  I can't understand the online source :( the things are simple and i think that you can help me a bit... I have a program. A simple program. This goes to /usr/bin/. Nice and cool. then, this simple program uses some files to run, perform some checks etc. These files go to /usr/share/ and then I copy them to ~/.config at the first app run. So, what else do I need to build the DEB package? I am really confused.... Is there any he21:03
Rhondahakermania: For a start, your message got cut after "Is there any he".21:12
hakermanias there any helper that asks you about where to place the one and the other file and creates the package itself?21:13
Rhondahakermania: The debian/rules file of a Debian source package is technicly just a makefile that has to have specific targets and in the end creates the .deb files.21:13
Rhondadebhelper takes you pretty much there.21:13
hakermaniaBut we are talking about MY program! I haven't make any source package or something like this!21:14
Rhondadh_make gets you a debian/ directory with a load of example files, most of which you can delete because they won't apply, like all the emacsen ones, I assume.21:14
hakermaniawhere are these examples placed?21:14
RhondaIf you want a program to get packaged, you should consider producing a makefile to do so, or use autotools if it requires other libraries to check their availablility and things.21:15
RhondaInside the debian/ directory. :)21:15
hakermaniaToo much info for a day i think --_--21:17
ari-tczewRhonda: would you like review my package on REVU?21:46
