#498 closed enhancement (duplicate)

automate the production of .deb's of dependent libraries

Keywords: debian ops deployment packaging Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


Automate the production of .deb's of any dependent library of Tahoe's which someone else doesn't already provide .deb's for. This certainly includes zfec and pycryptopp for starters.

See also http://allmydata.org/trac/zfec/ticket/1 (automate the production of .deb's) and http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/10 (automate the production of .deb's).

This is the new improved better solution to #469 (build pycryptopp+zfec debs for hardy).

This is currently blocked on http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/212 (buildbot doesn't respond to darcs tags).

According to Denis Bonnenfant, some of the binary .deb's that we provide depend on the wrong libc (a libc from Ubuntu instead of from Debian):


This is not too surprising, since I created the .deb's for Debian by cp'ing the .deb's for Ubuntu.

The best way to fix this would be to script our actual Debian buildslaves to produce .deb's in response to darcs tags.

Well, really this ticket isn't blocked on buildbot #212. I can go ahead and script buildslaves to produce .deb's and then force them to do so by clicking the "Force Build" button.

Currently we don't provide .deb's for amd64 architecture. If this ticket were fixed, then it would be very easy for us to do so.

I want to have this working with the v1.5 release.

  • Milestone changed from 1.5.0 to eventually

We've made some progress on this -- see the "stdeb' steps on the zfec and pycryptopp buildbots:



However, the resulting .deb's aren't 100% correct yet. For one thing, zfec depends on argparse and pyutil which are themselves not properly available through apt. So, we're almost there.
