Hello Philippe,

I'm on Precise, and have (I believe) cleaned away the "from-source" install -- at least to the best of my ability. Which means I've finally tried the packages while being reasonably confident there isn't interference from the "Clang + objc2 + development code" build. :-)

So, now that I hopefully have a system to test on, I've tried building QuartzCore's Demo and Tests folders (the code that I'm personally most attached to :-)).

Demo crashes inside Opal, in TIFFSetDirectory(). Tests can't even be built -- and frankly I haven't ever seen this type of error, nor can I interpret it:
address@hidden:~/gnustep-quartzcore-hgsvn/Tests$ make
This is gnustep-make 2.6.2. Type 'make print-gnustep-make-help' for help.
Making all for tool hello_opal...
 Linking tool hello_opal ...
/usr/bin/ld: ./obj/hello_opal.obj/hello_opal.m.o: undefined reference to symbol 'cairo_image_surface_create'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'cairo_image_surface_create' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../i386-linux-gnu/libcairo.so so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../i386-linux-gnu/libcairo.so: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [obj/hello_opal] Error 1
make[2]: *** [internal-tool-all_] Error 2
make[1]: *** [hello_opal.all.tool.variables] Error 2
make: *** [internal-all] Error 2

So I'm primarily interested in whether or not things in these folders work for you; that is, should I be digging around fixing my system and the code, or is something botched with the packages?

Out of curiosity, to check whether I'm really seeing something bad on my system, I've also installed the textedit.app package, and it runs alright.

Anyway, thanks for all the work on providing up-to-date packages! :-)

Hi all,

I updated packages for precise and wheezy, for both i386 and amd64, and
for quantal amd64.

Note : some packages may be missing for a distribution/architecture
combo, for example when an api change breaks the compilation.

Packages list :
 * gnustep-{make,base,gui,back} and related dev packages
 * gdl2
 * easydiff
 * edenmath
 * pantomime
 * gnumail
 * gorm
 * projectcenter
 * gworkspace
 * gnustep-examples
 * laternamagica
 * lusernet
 * notebook
 * poe
 * terminal
 * textedit
 * systempreferences
 * vindaloo (with iconkit and popplerkit from Etoile)
 * waiho
 * renaissance
 * zipper
 * helpviewer
 * cynthiune
 * dbuskit
 * addressmanager
 * agenda
 * fisicalab
 * corebase
 * opal
 * quartzcore
 * performance
 * rsskit
 * grr
 * price

Everything is under the following url :


For example, for precise x86 you can add to sources.list :

deb http://coyote.octets.fr/pub/gnustep/packages/precise/i386/ ./

Please let me know if you find this useful, if a package is broken, if
you would like to add another package to the list etc.
