Non debian packages
I've upgraded to Debian 1.1 two days ago and have some doubts...
I used to have installed lots of packages I couldn't find in a debianized
form (fetchpop, ImageMagick, and lots more). I see several alternatives,
but I'd like a recommendation...
1) Wait till somebody releases a debianized package (I don't think this
will be the best, though)
2) Install everything as it comes under /usr/local, and keep the mess
confined there. (A last resort, isn't it?)
3) Make an attempt to 'debianize' the packages, installing them under
/usr/local with dpkg (my 'own debianization', in fact).
4) Try to debianize the packages in a FSSTND compliant way, to
eventually install them with dpkg. (I'd need a spare year... <g>)
Of those four, I like best the 3rd, but I've got to learn how to make a
good debianized package (I've already updated to lynx 2.5 and xwpe 1.4.2,
byt that was just a matter of 'manual diffing')
Bye & Good Luck!
