Sorry, my first post got cut off, it's on the list archive. John
Vivirito was correct, I wanted the supporting packages.
We don't need libeet, because that's in experimental with the other
pkg-e stuff. I didn't have karmic-updates and karmic-security repos so
now i have
I am running it on Jaunty now, with karmic repos (good, but a few
bugs, integrates with gdm). I needed to add both testing and
experimental debian repos, so if we can get the testing stuff in it
will integrate well from a mirror.
According to my package manager as of now (repos: karmic, jaunty and
debian testing) I need these support packages for binary compatibility
with the debian pkg-e repo:
libgcrypt11 (>= 1.4.4-2)
libgpg-error0 (>= 1.6-1)
That's it, so we're close. Then put all the pkg-e stuff in a mirror
(eet is in that so it's ok) and it will be simple to install and
maintain alongside a standard karmic desktop.
