Hey,

* I rebuilt all Debian Etch source packages with the Maemo 5 SDK and sdbmock.

* 10,220 Source packages processed.

* 6,451 .debs produced.

* The job ran for 8 days.

* They have not been run through maemo-optify yet--I will test the fix for the recursive symlink bug[1] when ready.

* They were compiled against the current maemos-extras repository. They have no dependencies other than that. In other words, no package within the rebuild depends on anything else in the rebuild--this is the first pass.

* I could batch import packages that don't already exist in extras-devel. I think this would be rad.

* Download locations (temporary):
Directory: http://obra.freemoe.org/freemoe-etch/
Install file for N900: http://obra.freemoe.org/obra.install
/etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://obra.freemoe.org/ freemoe-etch/

* Thx Ed for sbdmock help.

* Have fun.

Outstanding! You are the man!

Just grabbed a bunch of packages I've been longing for but too lazy to recompile. Thanks!

The last pocket computer I had was a Zaurus c760. It was waaaaay ahead of its time, and so close to what I thought it could be. But it just wasn't there yet.

Today I got my exchange sync working, which was my last remaining issue. And now, jebba puts up a Debian repo with more packages than existed for even openzaurus/angstrom.

A gcc toolchain, perfectly functioning radios, slick and responsive UI, office integration, razor sharp 80x25 console window, X11, iptraf, joe, ssh -X, unison, bluetooth headphones for those morning walks... everything works!

I am too happy. This might be the nerdiest thing I've ever said, but I feel like I'm about to wake from a dream..lol.

Great job!

But got an error from my progam manager when importing the install file.

Is the install file working for maemo5?

Hope to get it working.

try try try again?

You may need a decent chunk of free space on / to get the archive list.

Maybe I am missing something here, but Debian Lenny has armel packages. I have used the lenny repository on the N900 to install a few things e.g. Nano, Aircrack, and macchanger. I guess there may be more packages in your repository :/

A nice effort and contribution though!

Sorry, still does not work for me.
Programmanager fails in adding the catalog.

In
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list

I found the line
deb http://obra.freemoe.org/ freemoe-etch

which seems to be incorrect because from a shell I get:

#apt-get update
E: Malformed line 9 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list (dist parse)

I thing either a directory is missing on your server or the install file is incorrect.

Etch was released at beginning of 2007 which makes it about 3 years old. Adding release freeze means that software has ~3.5 year now.

I know that for Maemo5 it is fresh new stuff (as there are pre-Etch components in rootfs) but I hope that at least Maemo6 will finally be rebased to something more fresh (Lenny for example).
