Reg. linux user #395339.

Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

Yes, there are MX 17 packages, too. :happy: We should add a MX 17 section here once we get a public beta out.

I just leveled up in packaging since I found out how to use pdebuilder with QEMU to cross-compile, and optionally hook the MX repos or a local folder repo to the builds if necessary. But I built these in generic Jessie and Stretch pbuilds, so Debian users can use them, too.

The setup for a pbuilder cross-compile is many times faster and easier then installing a distro in Virtual Box, too. I even have a setup for armhf for the Pi, but that's way out there for now.

I'm using the generic Stretch pbuilder with newer libexiv2 and opencv-3.2.0 libraries as build-deps in a local folder repo to build Digikam 5.7.0 for MX 17 right now. Those two build-depends were first built on generic Stretch, then the debs put in the folder. I have a hook script that updates the Packages file in that folder with every package build in pbuilder, so I can just delete them after I don't need them any longer. They'll end up in the test repo, so I can hook that up if I ever need them again.

But I can't do some packages yet in these, like the openjdk updates from upstream. There's probably a way, but I just don't know it.
