Gsequencer keeps wanting more and more backports to fix build failures on MX 15...building Ardour 5.12.0 for MX 17/18 instead.

And Audacity 2.3.1, too. I have a theme going today.

wine-staging-4.3 with the new libvkd3d-dev build-depends added is on it's way up for both jessie & stretch.
Did the configure in the build still complain about a missing libavcodec-dev?
The +3 is up with both libvkd3d-dev & libavcodec-dev baked in.
No more config complaints.

What do you want to do when faudio comes out?

It depends on whether wine-staging keeps the patches to disable the need for it. I suspect that they will, since most distros won't have faudio for a while. If it's required, we'll just backport it, too.

Still with the audio program theme, Qtractor 0.9.5 (current release) from upstream Debian for MX 15 thru 18.

Shotwell Photo Manager 0.30.2--needs a newer valac from our test repo to build successfully now. Building it against a newer libraw from Buster to support more RAW formats.

Hmm--Shotwell 0.30.2 throws up va-api errors when run from the terminal when built against Stretch's versions. Gonna rebuild against MX 18's libva and Mesa libraries to see if that helps--maybe it can use va-api to speed up photo processing tasks.

0ad 0.0.23.1 bugfix version from Buster. I have to cross-compile the 32-bit version using sbuild instead of pbuilder, since Debian has it build its own internal Mozilla javascript interpreter, since Debian doesn't have that package, and those always fail to cross-compile in pbuilder.

OK--there are some quirks to using it that we may not have fully documented so far--especially use of the local repo so you can build against previously backported packages. Let us know if any problems pop up.

Once the packages are built, you can use a command (or script) like

Code: Select all

sudo mv /var/cache/pbuilder/debian-stretch-amd64/result/* . && \
sudo mv /var/cache/pbuilder/debian-stretch-i386/result/* . && \
debsign *.changes
To move them to the current folder and sign the i386 packages, since autosign doesn't seem to work for those. Arch-independent packages just get most of the first line, of course.

Calibre 3.40.1 for main MX 17 repo.

Liquorix 5.0-1 kernel. Switches back to p-state CPU power control for modern Intel CPUs, unless you disable that at boot. I guess the developer feels that offers the best power and performance, now.
