Don t you love it when it looks simple and then it is actually simple, but you are not up to the task?
I am loving the xlibs-dev
transition, really, I mean it! Two of my packages, fkiss
got bit by this issue, and I immediately fixed the bugs with a little help from a script
provided by Moritz Muehlenhoff. really cool.
So I follow instructions in The Debian Wiki
, run the script, check with pbuilder
, upload and profit! Fun! End of world hunger! Err, almost. So I get all excited and decide to look at the bugs
. And I find a nice one: #346347
. Not bad, gpsim
FTBFS, Luk also took a look at it and didn t really like what he saw, it neede no xlibs-dev
or substitute for them and sitll FTBFS.
But wait! Just by looking at gpsim s
bugs page, I find out that there s a New Upstream Version(tm) (#248931
) available since 1 year and 241 day ago. Also, NMUs that have not been acknowledged for as long as almost two years... Not nice. And there s even a patch (#345215
) for building it on, GNU/kFreeBSD
... how sexy!
So I get all obsessive about it. But newer upstream needs a newer libgtkextra-dev
), which of course was not packaged (don't we all love Murphy?) and that s where I am stuck at. I loathe libraries. But still I gave it a try. And failed. Several times.
Fun? Yes! Profit? Nope! Do you want to take a look at it? Easy. It s all here
Amaya also FTBFS
. And I want to NMU amaya
. Badly. Since I first heard about amaya
, and realized that I am named after a web browser (sucky as it might be) and after getting many IRC highlights (every time that amaya
FTBFS is mentioned on IRC), I have been wanting to use/adopt/NMU it. Amaya NMUs amaya
, how recursive can it get?
I will go to bed now, and try not to keep thinking about it, not because I want to become an early riser, Gunnar, no need to worry
! But reading about it I thought it would be healthier for me to wake up everyday at the same hour, so that s all I am aiming for. If you know me, you might be rolling on the floor laughing as you read this. So am I! But, if you know me, keep in mind that I have been drinking coffee with no sugar since August... Hey! You are not laughing anymore?
Vi and Emacs are doing fine. Emacs was not pregnant after all, or so the vet told me. It was hard to see her slowly become herself after surgery. Vi was perfectly OK all along, but she looked terrible. Anyway, she felt better by 6am the next day and came to bed, perfectly groomed, and purring like nothing had happened. A week has passed and she has started doing the gory part today... she s biting away the scar tissue, and it bleeds a bit. Oh my Spaghetti Monster!
