[haiku-development] Devel Packages and Deskbar Symlinks from HaikuPorter (Augustin Cavalier)

Fri, 2014-06-06 11:45
Hello, I'm in the process of updating the Qt package. Currently, there aren't deskbar symlinks added for the GUI devel programs (e.g. designer, linguist, etc.) Is there some way to call addAppDeskbarSymlink for the devel package? ...

You seem to have missed the main issue that Oliver brought up: The HaikuPorts recipe tree is currently in no condition to reproducibly build a consistent state of the package repository (for *any* architecture). IOW: If we'd decide to do a release now and rebuild all packages we'd likely get a broken mess. So, until the infrastructure is ready (Oliver is working on that) and there are testing and stable branches of the HaiuPorts recipe tree for the various ...

That messsage is good, for the time being. But for the actual implementation, do you have any estimate of the amount of time it will take? 20 hours? 50 hours? The laptop I'm writing this from has nothing but USB3 ports IIRC, and no CD ...

The rest of the time was spent trying to build the three packages of Pe for x86_gcc2, x86 and x86_64. During that process, I've noticed and fixed a problem in the binutils recipe, which caused binutils to require flex without declaring that (so binutils would work on a full Haiku installation but not in the chroots haikuporter uses for building. When that ...

Well, that is your impression. Stephan's is obviously not that positive. Mineisn't either. And since the main reason to do releases seems to be to reach new people, youcannot expect them to see the improvements over the last release. How does Haikulook like when you never used it before? ...
