You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Maemo SDK 5.0 Final (+fremantle repositories)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Log in to a fresh scratchbox
2. Configure /etc/apt/sources.list with extras,extras-testing,extras-devel
3. apt-get install libss-dev
libss-dev not found
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
apt-get source e2fsprogs reveals that debian/control contains packages
libss-dev, libcomerr2, etc etc. But it appears that only the primary e2fsprogs
and libuuid1 packages are actually available on the repositories! Building the
package myself (via apt-get source and dpkg-buildpackage) works without
modifications and produces the expected packages, but that means that I can't
post anything using comerr to extras-devel...
These packages are IMPORTANT for porting software from Debian.
re-assigned to Janne.
This seems to also be a problem for debconf; building from unmodified source
produces debconf-utils, but where is that package in the repositories?
There are probably other packages maimed this way.
The SDK intentionally doesn't provide all the binaries for all the source
packages released with the SDK. This is because all the binaries are not found
on the device either and developer relying on them being there might be in for
a surprise. This might also encourage some people to use the SDK repositories
on the devices to provide the extra packages and this really isn't a good idea.
Sometimes however packages are missing because of an error on our part. This
seems to be one of those cases and the requested binaries will be added with
the next update.
Thanks for the report :)
Update released today. The packages should now be available.
