the biggest bug is that vpackager doesnt actually put the slack-desc file in the packages  :-\

BTW, I have fixed this problem, and was able to upload it to svn.
The latest code (if compiled and packaged) should have this problem corrected.

I plan to release a package as soon as I can get my DSL service back. Unless someone else volunteers to compile it and make the package.

And it will be a lot easier to package now that Gambas2 is finally a 2.0.0!!! Woohoo!  ;D

Yes it will.. BTW easuter, should we now just package the binary instead of all the libs with it?

Yeah, I think so, now that Gambas2 can be added to the extra repo safely, it should be like making any other ordinary package.

Sorry, in a bit of a hurry so I haven't researched the board for a solution yet but...
I continually get the following:
Code: [Select]
vpackager Building openvpn-2.0.9-i586-1vl59.tlz
----------------------------------------------------
BASIC PACKAGE CONFIGURATION
--prefix=/usr
--sysconfdir=/etc
--bindir=/usr/bin
--libdir=/usr/lib
--mandir=/usr/man
--localstatedir=/var
----------------------------------------------------
ADDITIONAL CONFIGURATION
 --with-included-gettext

COMPILER FLAGS: -O2 -march=i586 -mtune=i686

Begin extracting sources
sh: line 0: cd: /tmp/vpackager-builds: No such file or directory
Result: FAILED
This happens with every release of vpackager, on every tarball I try to build, using the default settings on my machine. I have tried removing/changing the build options, etc. also without success. I then revert to building manually as the popup says to do. That is no problem but surely the default settings on a clean VL install (whether 5.8/9 std or 5.8/9 SOHO) should get past this point. I will put a bit more effort into it later this week...
BTW, the above was attempted on 5.9 SOHO alpha 3.3.

Mikecindy. I'm sorry to inform that there is a serious bug in the code that keeps deleting the temp dir.
I was sort of hoping to come up with some improvements and fix this bug, but it seems to be taking me much longer than the estimated time...

I will start working on a bugfix release to fix this issue

Whew, I was beginning to think this was just me.  ;)
I am a patient person though and eagerly awaiting more testing material.
Thanks for your efforts thus far as this will be/is a valuable package for the VL community.

You're right... Dunno how that happened.

I think this one will wait until the next release comes along. (giving you guys something to look forward to ;) )

I will make a bug entry just so I dont forget to look at it... Thanks for pointing it out
How is the build from source working for you?

libiffi is a dependancy for the gambas package, not for vpackager directly
