GNU/Linux COM development and Wine/Samba
I've got several projects in SourceForge, one of which is v3c-dcom
I'm quickly coming to the realisation that I would need several
headers/tools from Wine
, the idea being to be able to develop COM components natively.
I'd rather not simply pick them out of Wine, and was hoping to start off
something more productive.
I guess the topics for discussion are
1. What's the "Debian" way of doing this?
Wine development packages would be split into a shared, Wine, Samba
and GNU/Linux-specific binary/dev packages.
2. Does Debian officially approve of the idea of a native COM/DCOM
Wine already does this, but the premise is that it's for Windows
programs, which is a bit vague.
As this seems to be approved by Microsoft by default, could this
situation change with a native port?
Would this be rocking the apple cart?
3. These native components could eventually talk to Wine/Samba components.
Does anybody care about this?
4. Samba/Wine integration
Shared components mean less code to debug.
Samba and Wine seem to be stuck here.
Maybe having a native implementation that they could both use would
be the answer,
since Wine and Samba are native implementations already.
