Do you know how to build deb package on non-debian system? or do you know
whether there is how to do that or not?
If not, can you recommend the good package management tool like APT for
CPU : ARM
Distro : N/A
On Solaris there is a compilation problem with :
I riped those two from some GNU source tree around and added them to the
dpkg/lib directory and Makefile.am
Someone want to progress on this track with me ?
I think even if you succeed to install dpkg on Solaris, it doesn't work
I've also suffered a few problems to install dpkg on my system and succeeded
it, but it doesn't work:
dpkg fails if installing some deb package from debian site.
So I wondered that it succeeds or not if building deb package on the system
on which I installed dpkg.
However I have no idea even whether it's possible to build deb package on
There was no your problem for me: getopt, obstack
so I don't know well,
but if you proceed to install and run dpkg on non-debian system (Solaris in
so that you can install some deb package whichever building on your system
or getting from debian site,
I want to progress with you.
(although I'm not on Solaris but embedded linux)
or don't you think to build a new (distro independent) package management
tool on your system?
I'm looking for it (whether I don't know if there exists).
