You will be able to see from the poll archive that the following OS versions seem to be more popular
- Ubutnu 9.04 (53.0%, 19 Votes)
- Debian 5 (39.0%, 14 Votes)
- CENTOS 5 (28.0%, 10 Votes)
- openSuse 11.1 (22.0%, 8 Votes)
- Fedora 11 (19.0%, 7 Votes)
I will now start to work on the packages for these OS’s.
From the outset I see that we have quite a few Debian based users and this is a problem for me as I have no idea how to package for Debian. Not that I know much about packaging at all.
I have now set-up the osc build server (thanks to Fatpelt for supplying a 64bit hardware platform for us) as a test run I have tried to package the gmime package for Fedora as this is a requirement for Bongo. It has built fine so this was a plus.
From the initial errors I can see in the openSUSE build service. We need to look at our init scripts and also the spec file we have. quite a few errors were kicked out by rpmlint.
I would appreciate any help with the Debian Ubuntu package creation as well as spec files for each of the rpm distributions.
