Everyone please compile a static apt & dpkg ;-)
I need some help from registered Debian developers[*] to compile static
versions of apt and dpkg (potato/i386), to facilitate upgrades. The more
static versions, the better!
(Well, I just need them soon, so don't discuss first, Just Do It ;-)
You can do this on any potato box that has the necessary devel pkgs installed
(AFAIK master has).
1. Fetch sources:
2. Follow (easy!) instructions on:
3. Make an md5sums file with checksums of the constructed .deb files:
md5sum *.deb > MD5SUMS
4. Sign the MD5SUMS file with your GPG/PGP key[*].
5. Put the packages & signed MD5SUMS on some HTTP/FTP site or mail them
directly to me.
Thanks in advance!
[*] This is needed, because ftpmasters won't install unsigned things, and
I'm not a developer myself...
