first I'd like to thank every one (contributors and users) for supporting me. About two weeks ago I was being told that BlueProximity has found it's way into the ArchLinux repository. I finally managed to get packaging going for debian like systems (if anyone looks at the svn log there have been many steps into that) and today the great news is - BlueProximity is a semiofficial part of Ubuntu Hardy Heron. To be exact: you can find it in the universe repository. I expect it to be backported to gutsy and feisty too. Also I hope this will speed up the integration into debian.
That was the good news for today :-) Just wanted to let you all know.
very nice application! I built an rpm in openSUSE 10.3 (and Factory) FunkyM repository on openSUSE Build Serice.
You can find it here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/FunkyM/openSUSE_10.3/
would it be possible to host that file on sourceforge too? Otherwise - as I am not used to OpenSuSE - I think people have to find and add your repository first, right?
you are right. You should upload the rpms to sf.net.
The openSUSE 10.3 32 bit version is here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/FunkyM/openSUSE_10.3/i586/blueproximity-1.2.4-12.1.i586.rpm,
the openSUSE 10.3 64 bit version here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/FunkyM/openSUSE_10.3/x86_64/blueproximity-1.2.4-12.1.x86_64.rpm
If needed, I could also build for openSUSE 10.2.
I'll do that. 10.2 would be great too if there is still a noteable user base (or the effort needed is not too big)
You are welcome. Yes, there still seems to be a notable user base for 10.2 and if all dependencies are ok, it should be "just one click" to build for 10.2, too. I will report back here later...
ok, it really was just one click for 10.2:
As there are more packagers out there
I might ask if you would like to maintain it for the openSuSE
distribution types. You already asked for packaging and there might be still
problems regarding that. I'd like to create a low traffic mailing list
regarding packaging issues and new version announcements for packagers.
If you would like to join I would add you right on creation.
go ahead and add me to the list.
I took a look at the .spec file for Nicolas Fedora 8 packages. You have a dist_path in proximity.py, can you introduce a pixmaps_path path?
With some tiny modification to the .spac file, I should be able to build for Mandriva 2006 / 2007 on OBS too.
I'd like to get rid of the arch dependent packages. Can you tell me if blueproximity contains arch dependent code (in terms of 32 bit vs. 64 bit processors)? Is there a way to check this "the python" way? I thought about building the packages with "noarch" flag. While blueproximity doesn't contain any libs itself, I guess it is possible...
there is absolutely no architecture dependent code in BlueProximity. Everything that would be is the libs and they should be installed correctly via the packages dependencies. So that should be easy.
Btw, as you can see all debian/ubuntu packages are arch independent.
the packages are online on Sourceforge.
I sent you an email about it. Fedora 8 packages are available in
I'm trying to get them included in Fedora 9. If anyone wants them compiled to another Fedora/RHEL/Centos release, please let me know.
BTW, great piece of software
