Roughly how long does it take for a release to get to Debian Sid?

by HittingSmoke » Sun Jan 05, 2014 05:48

For the sake of simplicity I'd like to run Minetest from a repo instead of compiling it on every release.

0.4.9 is out but Debian Sid is still on 0.4.8. I realize it's only been a few days and the packaging is maintained by the Debian Games Team, but I'm curious how long it usually takes to get from release to that release ending up in the Debian repo.

When you clone the repo you can just do
Code: Select all
git pull
make -j2

and you are up to date.

Using the stable ppa doesn't automatically update the game version on deb/ubuntu?

The PPA hasn't been updated to 0.4.9. Even if it had been, PPAs only work on Ubuntu, not Debian.

Not true, private packages can be added to Debian :) but still, when the ppa gets updated, all using the ppa will get the version updated right?

Nope, If package is not build for debian, then it shouldn't be used on debian.. this may lead to strange errors. Anyway. Most debian users don't care about PPA.

I'm not modding and/or playing minetest anymore. All my mods were released under WTFPL. You can fix/modify them yourself. Don't ask me for support. Thanks.

cmake . DRUN_IN_PLACE is probably better, if supported.

Oh, sorry, I forgot to update the PPA. I have requested the builds now, they should be finished in some hours.

EDIT: They are finished now.
