Re: RFS: ballview - A free molecular modeling and moleculargraphics tool
thank you very much for your help, with your hints I could resolve most
of these issues:
The changelog says: "* Initial release (Closes: #nnnn) <nnnn is the bug
number of your ITP>" So you probably forgot to replace 'nnnn' :) See
also the file README.Debian, it still has "<possible notes regarding
this package - if none, delete this file>".
The docs file is empty, so can be removed.
I'm quite surprised by the two scripts in your debian dir:
createBALLVIEWDEB and debian-ball-install. Why are you using these, and
not place the commands in debian/rules? The latter is the place for
commands that build your package. Many of the things you do in those
scripts can be done by the available debhelper dh_* scripts.
The problem is, that we later may want to create an other package: BALL
Our software can also be used as a software framework in bioinformatics.
This package would have an other focus, an other content, and probably
be double the size. To create the two packages, I wanted to create a
corresponding set of scripts, that I can reuse. In addition, we will
also create packages for other distributions and thus can reuse this
I guess you are right. Could you tell how to delete it with the
I don't think the 'deb-ball-source' dir belongs in a clean source
The licence statement in ./STRUCTURE/numericalSAS.C seems very
incompatible with Debian:
This must be mentioned in debian/copyright, and, if this stays this way,
I think the package must be in non-free. However, it's of course
possible to contact the upstream author to see whether either this code
can be removed (it seems only a small part), or the original copyright
holder can be contacted for relicencing.
You are right, we are currently trying to solve this issue.
I get the following error while building the package in a clean
checking for libpython...
No libpython*a found in /usr/lib/python2.4/config/. Please
the path where your Python library resides using
or ensure that libpython is installed in the correct directory
(sys.prefix is /usr)
I have added the corresponding python-dev package dependency.
Lintian still shows a native-package-with-dash-version warning.
Could someone please explain me how to solve this issue?
Thank you again for your help
