Re: ROOT 5.32/00 for Debian Squeeze



Hi guys,

	my opinion is not to submit root packages in debian. The reason? It's a 
lot of work and none of us have so much time to do this. I think it's better 
to leave root debian packages in the CERN repository. Actually packages are 
only for unstable release, but probably we can add also Ricardo's ones, since 
they are for the stable release.

Just a question Ricardo: i see compiling root 5.32 I have problem related to 
xrootd, that's not anymore included in root. Did you disable this option 
during configuration procedure?

Cheers,

	Antonio
