Ubuntu packages
« on: March 05, 2009, 05:35:10 PM »


Hello people  :D  I am going to try to create aMule deb packages for Ubuntu.

I am not an expert so they may have errors1. If he gives you any problems please say so. My deb packages were built using official rules of Debian/Ubuntu aMule package.


Supported archs: i386, amd64 and lpia

-> Add PPA repository

Just download and install deb package for your Ubuntu release.

||Jaunty Jackalope 9.04||Intrepid Ibex 8.10||Hardy Heron 8.04||

-> Installing...

You can use Synaptic Package Manager (if you use GNOME) or KPackageKit/Adept (if you use KDE).
Then you must reload your repositories, search and install amule package.

If you prefer to use the terminal, enter this command:
Quote
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install amule

But there are more optional packages...

amule: WxWigets client for networks eD2k and Kad
amule-common: Common file for the remaining packages aMule
amule-gnome-support: ed2k links handling support for GNOME web browsers
amule-daemon: Non-graphical version aMule, a client for networks eD2k and Kad
amule-utils: aMule tools (console version)
amule-utils-gui: Graphical tools for aMule

Only for packagers!!:
* To download sources of aMule or of ubuntu package, go here.

Well.. I'm back   ::)

Two things:

  • Packages are compiled with optimization higher than normal. I wonder if you look at any change in performance or if it is a problem
  • There is a new package, called amule-gnome-support, that automatically solves the problem of ed2k links support ONLY in GNOME browsers like Firefox

Uploading new build for Hardy which should enable upnp support once and for all.

For that I backported libupnp3-dev library from Jaunty since libupnp-dev of Hardy repositories doesn't work.

New upstream release!!!:

  • Enabled Jaunty  PPA repository because 2.2.4 will not be in Ubuntu 9.04 repositories (too late for upload a new release)
  • Changed -O3 optimization by  -Os. In other words, amule binaries will be more small... and maybe... more fast  ::)
  • Added binutils-dev dependency for improve bug reports

Sorry for delay, I'm a little busy lately....  :-\

To create "good" packages we using a set of tools (devscripts, debhelper ...), not just one.

would become a packager but i don't know anything! :D Could you tell me where i can start from?

I learned reading this manual (and also others). Also, you can see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyEl3w7SFK4

And when you have something, if you want improve your packaging skills, I recommend you collaborate with the Getdeb project. For that you should see their wiki

For end, you can get help in IRC: #getdeb (for packaging in GetDeb) and #ubuntu-motu (for all Ubuntu packaging issues) channels.

Or if you like more e-mail, you have:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-motu-mentors
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-motu

I wish you good luck as a packager!!   ;)

Thanks for the info. However, I will maintain the repository for Ubuntu 9.04 because I have in mind some improvements in the package that can not be included in the repositories (since there is no time for major changes) and maybe1 will be a 2.2.5 release before 2.3.0.








1Note: For more information read the article about the meaning of SoonTM to amule dev team...  ::)

Thank you so much for doing this!  It's up-to-date now and UPnP actually works.

Few words to say a BIG thank you for the Jaunty package !

I don't know why, but on my system was amule-adunanza installed, and it wasn't work very well.
Now with the latest amule, all is working fine again !

News!!  ;D ;D

  • Added deb package of GPG keys and sources

Now just install a deb package will automatically be added the repository and the corresponding GPG key needed.

  • Added integration with emulecollection files

 Now you can open and load an emulecollection file to aMule with a single double click (or right click and click Open with "amule-emc").

  • Compiled with  wxwidgets 2.8.10.1

 I got lastest wxwidgets sources of here and uploaded to amule-releases PPA.

Note: this wxwidgets build hasn't any patches applied....  ::)

Reload your repositories, download and enjoy!!  ;)
