Re: DEB Package?

I am having 0 luck attempting to compile w/wxWidgets. Trying to compile wx from source was a no-go (various syntax errors I didn’t really delve into), downloaded latest precompiled wx packages for ubuntu karmic, but they do not match up to your static links far as I can tell. I guess what I’m getting at is, rather than try to sort out these issues, I’d really love a .deb <.< I’d like to participate – as an agorist and a fan of cryptoanarchic theory this is sort of a fantasy of mine, but there is frankly no way I will dual boot windows or run this in as insecure an environment as a VM.

DEB isn’t a bad route, you’ll hit the vast majority of desktop linux users, most of whom won’t be buggered to try compiling in the first place, so I don’t think it’s entirely unreasonable. Alternatively if you are interested in helping me work out compilation issues I would be happy to provide x86_64 binaries for ubuntu as long as I am compiling them. I haven’t done .debs before but I am sure I can figure that out. Let me know 🙂

Are you just trying to run the program or do you really need to compile it?  There’s a 32-bit linux binary that can be run on 64-bit ubuntu if you “sudo apt-get ia32-libs”.

I recently updated the SVN for building on 64-bit Karmic with wxWidgets 2.9.0.  This was after the 0.2.0 release.  The 0.2.0 release did not build on 64-bit yet.

Unfortunately there currently isn’t a -dev deb package of either of the versions of wxWidgets that we can use.  On Karmic they only have the UTF-16 version.  We need either the ANSI (libwxgtk2.8-ansi-dev) version or the UTF-8 (wxWidgets 2.9.0) version.  We’re moving towards 2.9.0.

I know you said you didn’t want VM, but as a last resort, last I checked the Windows version runs fine in Wine.
