First rough cut packages are online @ http://users.aber.ac.uk/ajw/debian/ They're definitely not ready for uploading, I've only built them on Lenny so far (that's my main priority right now for $day_job usage). Modules seem to build ok with m-a a-i blcr, although I can't actually insmod them yet since I've been building them for a kernel I've not yet booted! (Long running job on my desktop). Known issues: - Various mentions of AUFS in package descriptions/documentation, I used AUFS packages as a starting point. > (hey, if it passes lintian, it must be fine, right :) - A few lintian warnings, mostly about the copyright file (which doesn't reference the locally installed one yet, and has the old FSF address etc.) - The blcr.tar.bz2 shipped in the blcr-source package is 'heavy' to say the least. - module assistant mostly prints incomplete junk in the progress dialog whilst it's building (I've no idea how to fix that properly) - probably not integrated right with the rest of module-assistant anyway, I have exactly 0 experience with module-assistant packaging until now. - Dependencies might be wrong until I try doing things in a chroot to check - No postinst script yet for the modules package. Anyone care to use/break/test/review/critique/patch these? Thanks, Alan P.S. Rather nice packaging something that has manpages already written, and a version for the shared objects that isn't just 0.0.0!
