Question about a roadmap for 2.5 branch (packaging for Fedora)
« on: November 20, 2013, 12:54:49 am »
Hi,

The branch 2.5 looks quite stable (lloing at the commit rate) and I wonder is it a good time to start a preparation for making some packaging for Fedora (to make it easier to test UFO:AI in this environment)? Are they planned any big changes before the release which could provide an additional work?

Two more questions:
1. Have you introduced any changes in a build system (since 2.4) which could surprise me?
2. How can ufoai-data.tar (or at least its content) can be generated from the source forlder from Git?

Marcin

I have found a very interesting thread about packaging for Debian which points me make pk3.

yes, you can also check out the debian git repository of the packages that apo provides there. It should contain everything that is needed.

we hope to release 2.5 as soon as possible. It's only a matter of time.

There is a binary named "memory". Is it a developers tool only which should not be packaged?

Yes, it is a dev only "tool", I don't see any use for it to be packaged.

I generally managed to create packages, but have two questions.

1. What is the status of the compatibility with Inter cards? Karel Volny an RPMFusion packager created a wrapper which disables GLSL Shaders (?) by writing 'set r_programs "0" a' to the config file on the first run on given machine with Intel card. Is it still required or UFAI by default sets some safe mode (I have seen a topic about it on forum recently, but I couldn't find it today)?

2. I can host RPM packages with code, but RPMS with data takes ~1,2GB. Do you have any space I could upload this package for beta testing for other Fedora users?

So far, it is better to avoid shaders with Intel hardware. Period.
