Is that wrong? If so, it could be a problem for me, because I have dialup
and it would take a long time to download a distribution dvd. I had
this ubuntu CD, (they seem to be everywhere), so I just started to use
it. Everyone tells me that ubuntu is a form of debian.
Well, everyone who has told you is wrong. It's more a fork/heavily
modified derivative than a variant. You can't build a package on
Ubuntu and expect it to just work with Debian.
If you can't download a full disc, then order a disc set from one of
the many Linux retailers on the net.
Anyway, today I thought I had all my files OK, and I could build a package,
so I thought to try to submit a "RFP".
I did a "bugreport --email firstname.lastname@example.org wnpp"
but it never asked me to "Choose the request type:" like it
says in this web page:
finnaly when it began saying it was going to send the report off
to an ubuntu mailing list, I aborted it.
Is there a way to file a RFP from ubuntu? What am I doing wrong?
That's because reportbug in Ubuntu is set to report everything to
Ubuntu's bug tracker, not the Debian BTS.
