REQUEST: GrafX2 2.5 (release) [SOLVED]

#1 Post by app4soft » Sun May 06, 2018 8:43 pm

Package: grafx2
Version: 2.5 (release) GrafX2 2.5 released day ago... ... but then got few fixes that should be used for packaging! Image

So, check latest commits pushed after tag "2.5" in "master" branch!

GrafX2 2.5 has support to SDL2, but SDL1.x is preferred for packaging!

P.S.: Here is my screenshot that created using latest official "nightly build" for Linux Image

I'll see if I can make that new commit into a patch to the standard 2.5 source...

Edit: not good. The new release tries to download something during the build, which is not allowed. Maybe I can download it ahead of time...

Code: Select all

cd archives && curl -O -L --max-time 120 https://sourceforge.net/projects/recoil/files/recoil/4.2.0/recoil-4.2.0.tar.gz

Well, GrafX2 v2.5.1960 out (bug-fix release) And now RECOIL dependency little solved, as it mirrored outside from SourceForge. So, Stevo, try re-built GrafX2 using this commit:

You're really not allowed to download anything from outside during a package build...that's Debian policy.

It would work if they included the recoil source in a /thirdparty folder in their source, like a lot of other projects include other libraries. I've tried to do that manually, but can't get it to work. Handbrake does the same kind of stunt, but the Debian packagers have worked around that.

I'll see if they can suggest anything.

Edit: I looked at the way the Arch AUR builds it, and will try to copy the way their PKGBUILD adds the recoil source tarball manually. But that's for tomorrow...

OK, that seems to have worked. You can test install the debs early from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WfgG1 ... Mq8sfX-jxn
