Packaging kdebindings for debian
The debian packagers have been having problems packaging kdebindings from
either kde3.0.1 or cvs. Chris Cheney has attempted the package but as you
can see (http://calc.cx/kde.txt) it has not worked. Numerous problems with
both the Makefiles and source errors from most of the subprojects have been
reported. For instance when building the qtc library a linking error occurs:
<alp> linking problem
<alp> compiles fine.
undefined reference to `QCDEStyle type_info node'
<alp> .libs/qt_QCDEStyle.o: In function
undefined reference to `QCDEStyle::~QCDEStyle(void)'
<alp> collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
<alp> make: *** [libqtc.la.closure] Error 1
However, the linking works when the styles are removed from the build. It
would beneficial if the packagers and developers would work together to solve
these problems as kdebindings is the last package for debian-kde.
Also, it would be good to note which bindings are supposed to work and which
should be excluded from the package. For instance I know that qtcsharp, as
currently constituted in cvs, is _not_ ready for packaging.
