Request / Help me

Please help, I am looking for :

Sponsorship/uploader for :

Testing :



[[RzR]] :

I applied to become a Debian developer since I use LibreSoftware for more than a decade now. And I feel i have a debt to this community.

I already done some works as a opensource developer, I contributed to some 3D games projects , and I started a 3D lib for J2ME devices ,

I also made some documentation, patches etc, You'll see some reference at : @

About Debian, I try to share my knowledge with users, I am used to bugreport problem and I've done several packages yet.

Done :

  • this small ssh util :


  • an algebra lib :


  • guitar tablature editor (SWT)


  • fat resizer


  • Also, I try to maintain a “quick and dirty” repository for some missing packages not so free or custom ones.

Work Planned :

  • My plans in the future is to package other missing packages such as glaxium, ksmoothdock and a couple of other tools.





ToDo :



sudo apt-get install dh-make dpkg-dev devscripts  lintian linda
sudo apt-get install gcc make fakeroot docbook-to-man

Publishing a debian package :

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
debuild (ou pdebuild)
dput ou dupload ou debrelease


find . -iname "*.so" -printf "%P usr/lib/\n" >> debian/install
reportbug wnnp
dupload --to mentors  *.changes


apt-get install chrpath (tool of the month)



(rh's /etc/rc.d/rc.local )
# how to make a debian package :
cvs login
cvs -z3 co mldonkey
gmake -f debian/rules
gmake -f debian/rules binary
dpkg -i ../*.deb
# lintian - Debian package checker

hold pkg :

dselect : "="
echo -e "libc6 hold\nlibc6-dev hold" | dpkg --set-selections

black magic

dget -x
sudo aptitude install $(debuild  2>&1 | grep 'dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: ' | cut -d: -f3 | sed -e 's/(.*)//g')
debuild -S 2>&1 | grep 'dpkg-source: error: cannot represent change to ' | sed -e "s|dpkg-source: error: cannot represent change to $(basename -- `pwd`)/\(.*\): .*|\1|g" | while read t; do echo "rm -vf -- \"$t\""; done
find . -type f  -exec file '{}' \; | grep -e ELF | grep -e executable | cut -d: -f1 | while read t; do install -v $t /tmp/ ; done
find . -type f -iname "*.so*" -exec basename "{}" \; | while read t; do xargs -n 1 apt-file search ; done | cut -d: -f 1 | sort | uniq | tr '\n' ' , '
dpkg --clear-avail #



You can convert these debian packages to RPM or Slackware tgz using Alien package converter. You can obtain it at





mkdir -p /tmp/${TMPDIR} && cd /tmp/${TMPDIR}
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-build apt-src
sudo apt-build install connect-proxy
sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt-build/repository/connect-proxy_1.95-2_i386.deb


"dpkg: error: --configure needs a valid package name but 'libc6' is not: ambiguous package name 'libc6' with more than one installed instance"
  sudo dpkg -P --force-all libgtk2.0-cil

Was not enough for me I had to :

  sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/libgtk2.0-cil.postrm /var/lib/dpkg/info/libgtk2.0-cil.postrm.tmp
  sudo dpkg -P --force-all libgtk2.0-cil
