Bug#256283: [pylucene-dev] Re: PyLucence Debian Package
I compiled PyLucene 1.9rc1-7 for the i386, amd64, and
powerpc Debian architectures. I created an APT repository
because I figured it would be easier to manage. So if you
add the follow instructions to your website they should make
sense to any Debian user:
There are binary PyLucene 1.9rc1-7 Debian Stable (Sarge)
packages for the i386, amd64, and powerpc architectures.
To install PyLucene add the following apt repository to
your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb http://www.canonical.org/debian/ sarge main
then run the following commands:
apt-get install python2.4-pylucene
PyLucene only works with Python 2.4 so to make use of it
ensure you are using /usr/bin/python2.4 and not /usr/bin/python.
Any questions / concerns, just tell me and I'll change
whatever you need.
Oh, one last thing, in addition to adding a README.Debian
file I added the samples and test cases to the documentation
set. The /usr/share/doc/python2.4-pylucene/README.Debian
file gives instructions on how to run them.
