I have created a deb-file for ROX 1.1.2. You can find it at
I have also changed the rox-base_1.0.0-1_i386.deb file to
rox-base_1.0.0-2_all.deb, after-all, rox-base is system independent.
BTW, Is there someone who wants to try to create a deb-file for non-ix86
Normally you can do this by downloading
"rox_1.1.2-1.dsc" and "rox_1.1.2.orig.tar.gz" to your non-ix86 machine.
And then using the following commands :
- dpkg-source -x directory/rox_1.1.2-1.dsc
- cd rox-1.1.2
- dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
More information about builing .deb-files can be found in :
