Solving xdeb dependency cycles
> xdeb -a armel -d ../dest --apt-source <source package>
gives a dependency cycle
Building working tree cache ... Dependency cycle: [u'pango1.0', u'cairo', u'mesa', u'udev', u'gobject-introspection']
Try the command with local source.
> apt-get source <package> > xdeb -a armel -d ../dest <source package>
2 If any of the source packages mentioned in the cycle are present in the working directory, try moving them away.
For real cycles it may be possible to
- make reduced packages to satisfy dependencies
- build the bootstrapped packages
- once all the packages in the cycle have been built, rebuild all the packages un bootstrapped.
cyrus-sasl2, krb5 & openldap are inter dependent.
- cyrus-sasl2 without ldap (and any other modules dependent on ldap)
- krb5 without ldap
- openldap without gssapi (from krb5)
- krb5 with ldap
- openldap with gssapi
CAUTION The bootstrapping & cross building changes may be tangled in these packages.
Natty chroot from http://uk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
updated after multiarch packages started arriving
- xdeb from lp:xdeb xdeb (0.6.4)
patched to add the -M option to it's dpkg-cross call
dpkg-cross locally built & installed from debian source (2.6.3)
configurations i.e xdeb.cfg dpkg-cross/cross.conf.armel sources.list
