Yes, I will build a -dev .deb into the next release of the package, which
I expect will be tomorrow (I'm collapsing with sleep now due to a
5 month old baby).

I think two (not one) -dev .deb packages are needed: a (let's say) "libgtk+2.0-directfb-udeb-dev_2.0.9-2.3_i386.deb" and a (let's say) "libdirectfb-udeb-dev_0.9.22-7.1_i386.deb".

Those packages should allows us to compile gtk.so and make it run with already existing "libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb_2.0.9.2-3_i386.udeb" and "libdirectfb-0.9-22-udeb_0.9.22-7.1_i386.udeb" udebs.

I'll also set the Maintainer: as debian-boot team with myself as uploader.

Davide, Attilio, do you have pointers to how you built the working
gtk-libdirectfb libs? I'll compare those with my builds and see whats

I've made such a mess of libraries on my laptop in the past months that i cannot even tell against what actaully gtk.so compiles and runs: someday i'll have to format my laptop to clean it.. :(
Anyway i'll try to rebuild my developement libs from scratch tomorrow using

-directfb 0.9.22 from http://www.directfb.org/downloads/Core/DirectFB-0.9.22.tar.gz

-libgtk 2.0.9 from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.0/gtk+-2.0.9.tar.bz2

-gdk over dfb patch from http://www.directfb.org/downloads/Libs/gdk-directfb-2003-04-07.tar.gz

then i'll send everything to you

ciao and thank you very much!

Hi Alastair,

Thanks for the quick fixes
As you may have seen from the mountain of posts on d-boot about the graphical installer, we now have a working build system.

Unfortunately we do not yet have a gtk.so cdebconf frontend that works with your udeb (we currently use a tarball handcrafted by Attilio instead).

Main reason is that neither Davide nor Attilio has been able to figure out how to compile the frontend against it properly.

Can you offer advice (suggest a procedure)?
Would it be possible to include a libgtk+2.0-directfb library and/or -dev package alongside the udeb that could be used to build against?
