Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

Update 1.5.1

Changelog

* The script no more uses templates to create metadata file .INSTALL, instead it converts install scripts (preinst, postinst, prerm, postrm) of the original .deb package to a proper .INSTALL file. Since .INSTALL is no more no less than a shell script, it is strongly recommended from now on (for security reasons) if this file has been generated to view its contents before saving the final package, and edit it if necessary.
* Minor improvements.

Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

It doesn't generate PKGBUILD files, but the packages themselves, however (as stated in FAQ Question #3) it can help in determining which are the right dependencies when someone wants to write a PKGBUILD and fill the dependencies/optional dependencies/etc arrays.

Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

Update 2.1

Changelog

* You can now convert packages that are not in the same path you are running debtap/debtap-p64. The converted package will be placed in the same path with the original .deb package. Example:

debtap /path/to/package.deb

Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

I installed debtap-p64 and launched it as follows:

debtap-p64 -u

The response is:

Error: You must enable a multilib repository and then synchronize pacman database

I have verified that I do have a multilib repo and it has been synchronized several times.

I have the latest debtap-p64: 2.1-1

Any ideas?

Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

Minor update 2.1.2

Changelog

* Now both "debtap -u" and "debtap-p64 -u" synchronize the same database (located in /var/cache/debtap), instead of having two seperate folders, in order to avoid having twice the same database and free space. If you have run "debtap-p64 -u" before upgrading to this version, just run the following, so that you are not forced to synchronize again:

# mv /var/cache/debtap-p64 /var/cache/debtap

Re: Debtap - A script to convert .deb packages to Arch Linux packages

That's because they don't have a functioning pkgfile, besides this is Arch Linux, not Manjaro, forums
