Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Debian package of .LRN
With the unsolved problem I must say that the OpenACS installer assumes people is using daemontools so when the installer shutdown the server it will come up automatically (which is a function of daemontools). In the debian dotlrn package we don't use daemontools so I'll modify the installer to reflect the fact that people must manually start the server again.
/etc/init.d/aolserver4 is the init script from the aolserver4 package and may collide with the dotlrn one, I'll figure out a solution or warn the user about it.
I'll post a revised version today, thank you for the support.
Have you posted the revised version?
Since Debian packages can be used for Debian and Fedora, we get very good coverage with these. If you could document how this is done, then we could move towards making this the default method of installation.
I simply build the package with:
To build the package you need:
apt-get build-dep dotlrn
apt-get install build-essential fakeroot
The hard part is debianize the package which is better covered somewhere in the debian's developer corner:
Hope that helps.
