Bug#590049: nxjc in livecd
Ok Chris, thanks for the reply. Yes at the moment I included the lejos binaries in the live cd without the deb package, however it could be great havin a deb package.
Keep up the good work and thanks for your time in this.

That sounds really good, sorry for the late reply, I have been away form the computer for the last week, I have the beginnings of a package, but have been unable to work on it for the last few weeks. I am unsure when I will continue work on this as I am deep in packaging for the FlightGear project at the moment.
So far I have so far packaged cpptasks, one of the build depends included with Lejos NXJ and have been experimenting with the firmware building process. These are the two main reasons why the Lejos NXJ package will be quite complex, the Lejos NXJ project releases are not suited to being built, all the binaries are already compiled in the release and secondly, the firmware file requires a custom toolchain. The first just requires complex build rules, the second I have tried to solve by including the necessary sources for building the toolchain to build the firmware file in the Lejos NXJ source package. This should allow me to perfectly duplicate the compile process of upstream.
At the moment my package is in such a state where it would hinder you more trying to work with it. I am unfamiliar with the process of building live cd's but if you need to do this soon then I would find a way of doing it without a deb package. I will have another look at my package this week and see if I can get it working.

I am planning to produce a Debian live cd including nxjc since it will be used in our schools as part of the computer studies syllabus in Malta. How should I go about it?
Is there a .deb package for me to try? Or maybe I can help with one?
