Packages Wish-Slip

Wish-Slip...weird word, took it out of a dictionairy wink

I'm curious as to what packages other people would like to see in Arch Linux which aren't in it now. I figure not every user is experienced enough to be able to build their own packages. Not that I can do anything about getting them into Arch (except maybe package a few), but ... oh what the heck...Just put them under this topic, and who knows, maybe Santa will give you a nice present some day smile

Here's a few from the top of my head:

latex2html, and a TeX distribution like TeTeX (good luck to the packager wink)
gnumeric
openoffice
aumix with GTK support (i have a package ready for this, but wonder why the official aumix is compiled without GTK)
buzzword kernel (low-latency, preemptible)

and of course the ones i submitted to incoming already (easytag, flac, id3lib, lsof, wmbiff and wmitime)

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Jeepster and i have been working on the openoffice package.

as for the packages you have submitted to incoming make sure that you include the PKGBUILDs.

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

no other package wishes? come now. I don't believe this for a minute.

oh and as for not compiling aumix with gtk perhaps it was to offer those individuals who do not work in x the opprotunity to adjust their sound. personally i think a non gtk aumix works just fine.

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

nbsmtp, which I think sarah31 already built for me.

Support for East Asian Languages is the biggest one for me, then I could start using Arch as my main workstation.

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Yes, I was supposed to test the nbsmtp package for you--sigh, it's been horrendous at work the last few weeks.

Hopefully, I can get to it soon.

The Internationlization stuff was briefly discussed on this thread.  Doing some searching thogh, has only found me the kde i18n site at http://i18n.kde.org/


Thanks

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Why not offer a boot disk once its done installing. I'm not sure if you would still need to edit fstab and lilo first, but for some newbies and semi-newbies it would be better.

Also dialup access may be included or at least ppp stuff.

Just a thought!

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Well ... if you have to use bootdisks you have the bootdisk
If you can boot from cd you can use the cd as boot/rescue

so why make another disk?

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Well I guess I meant a lilo boot disk. One that would boot into my user account.

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

Soon is now, i just uploaded them to incoming. So for the adventurous among us: please test the packages.

I've tested them, and they work for me, but as the TeX stuff is quite big, it could be I made some mistakes.Take especially good care of latex2html, as it was a PITA to build. I made tarballs of the directories containing PKGBUILD, filelist and the precompiled package itself. Here's the list:

w3c-libwww-5.4.0-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
tetex-texmf-1.0.2-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
tetex-1.0.7-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
netpbm-10.12-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
latex2html-2002.2-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
dvipdfm-0.13.2c-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz

evilwm-0.99.11-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz
pwm-20010309-1-gcc-3.2.tar.gz

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

winex was cvs only right?

makepkg doesn't work with cvs as far as I know
but wine itself is in the package list ... never worked with it though smile

You can always try to make the package yourself, or even try to make makepkg script for it. It isn't that hard and there are enough examples on your computer once you typed the abs commando smile
(see /usr/abs/)

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

makepkg works fine with cvs wink

example for gaim:

# Contributor: Jochem Kossen <j.kossen@home.nl>
pkgname=gaim
pkgver=cvs.`date +%Y.%m.%d`
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="A GTK+-based messaging client"
depends=('glibc' 'xfree86' 'gtk2')
source=()

build() {
        cd $startdir/src/
        echo "" |cvs -d ':pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' login
        cvs -z3 -d ':pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' checkout gaim
        cd gaim
        ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
        make || return 1
        make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr install
}

Re: Packages Wish-Slip

actually you don't even have to be that detailed with your build as long as you have cvs installed. take a look at the package i built for giFT and giFTcurs in /incoming.

just thought i would save you some time jk
