Add autopackage files for Linux

Reported by: takkaria Owned by: magnate
Milestone: 3.1.2 beta Keywords: compat unix


To make building and installing easier for Linux people, put together an autopackage ( file. Probably relies on us having a working ./configure.

As a note, this should supplement, not replace, other methods of Linux distribution. Autopackage is x86 only - it is partially broken on 64-bit systems, and will not work on other processors...

Ah. Doesn't sound like such a good idea, then. (It wasn't going to replace anything else anyway.)

Now that building a .deb is easy (and therefore an .rpm via alien), perhaps this is a wontfix?

Will be closed once the .deb (and .rpm) files are building properly with --enable-gtk and --with-private-dirs.

Ok, this is essentially done, without autopackage. A .deb can be built by anyone checking out git:// (don't forget to pull in all submodules), and turned into an rpm with alien. Between the two, most major Linux distros are supported I think. See also #1076 for the Gentoo ebuild. Other package formats should be accommodated on an as-needed basis (no requests on Oook during 2009 for anything other than deb/rpm).
