Re: CoolKey for Gentoo

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


On Gentoo, things are built from source on the user's machine, customized the way they want, but with sensible defaults.  Since most people aren't likely to need to statically link to CoolKey, they ought to be off by default and enabled with a USE flag (which in turn would set an option to pass to ./configure).  I'll look into doing that.  Because Gentoo is building from source anyway, I don't typically see -dev packages on Gentoo.  It just occurred to me to try a USE flag for the nss install as well.

As far as splitting libcoolkey and libckyapplet, I'll provide the feedback to the Gentoo developer and see what he wants to do.

Thanks for the help so far,

David Mueller

Hi, I've been packaging for Debian.

Me Too. My approach was to pick a date and `cvs export -D` to that date
in the hopes that makes it easy for others to replicate.

which might be useful to somebody, so should be packaged.

I took the approach of three, but since coolkey depends upon libckyapplet1,
the common case will have both of those installed. The libckyapplet1-dev
package has the headers etc. for developers.

My packages skip the installer, mainly because I don't feel that I 
have enough clue
about what it is doing. Also, I'd like to see an installer for CA 
certificates to
avoid all the clicking around in the gui to get those set up.

Let me chime in too, and say that I think "pk11install" seems too 
generic for me,
and I'd probably change the name to "coolkey_pk11install", since that is more
precisely what it does.

Knowing how to install by hand has let me use coolkey with the 
Gnome Epiphany browser, too.

Good luck,
