Jeff Waugh has kindly been building i386 packages for Ubuntu edgy of mugshot. I’m running dapper (and kimberly as well), so I’ve built some i386 and amd64 packages for dapper. This is my first time building debs, and I didn’t do much besides uupdate with the new sources based on Jeff’s package, so if everything blows up, erases your hard drive, eats your children, etc. I’ve warned you. 🙂
As part of this, I decided it would be fun to learn how to setup a secure apt repository.
I finally got it nailed down though (and expect an express secure apt guide from me sometime soon – UPDATE: Express Guide to Secure Apt Repositories), and everything appears to be running smoothly. To add the repository to your Ubuntu install:
1. In your home directory:
2. Open Synaptic Click on Settings, Repositories, and then click on the Authentication tab.
3. Click Import Key File. Select
nighton_key.asc and click Ok.
4. Click on the Installation Media tab and click Add.
5. Click Custom.
6. For binary packages, type the following into the Apt Line field:
deb http://www.nighton.net/ dapper main
7. Click Add Channel.
8. Click Close.
9. Click Reload.
If you want source packages, repeat steps 4 through 9. Instead of step 6, use the following:
6. For source packages, type the following into the Apt Line field:
deb-src http://www.nighton.net/ dapper main
Wow, that was fast. 1.1.8 is out. Packages for amd64 are in the repository now. i386 packages should be in soon.
Packages for i386 are up. Happy swarming!
