Bug#517601: Bug#517600: texlive-metapost-doc: Package should be arch all

Hi Aurelien,

Do I miss something here? But since it is build from a source package
that also builds arch=any packages we cannot switch easily, right?

I mean, the only way would be to split the source packages further, and
that is -- sorry -- a no-go. Already the splitting as it is now is
really complicated.

Best wishes

Norbert

I don't know the details here, but one source package can build both
Arch: any and Arch: all binary packages; just change the appropriate
line in the control file, and ensure that any dh_* commands are called
to build the appropriate arch-dep or arch-indep parts.

Ah ok, that was what I missed. Yes, that can be done. I thought the
whole texlive-bin packages should be converted to arch=all.

Thanks Julian,

Re: [tex-live] Do not symlink when installing TeXLive 2008 on K/Ubuntu Intrepid or Debian systems

Dear Chandra,

yes, that is well known problem. Debian's package of texinfo installs
the GNU install-info as ginstall-info.

There are some things on the horizont, but for away for now:
- we on Debian are trying to replace dpkg install-info with GNU
  install-info in the long run
- texinfo/install-info will NOT be part of TeX Live 2009 anyway.

Can you give me examples of packages NOT working correctly? because the
texinfo GNU install-info should be new enough in TL2008 to deal with
many packages.

Examples please ... best would be only the postinst code that calls the
install-info ... Thanks

Finally, if some ubuntu/debian guy wants to help me with the
Debian/install-info -> GNU/install-info transition please contact me,
there is URGENT need for that!

Best wishes

Norbert

The packages were related to my installation of the prevu package.

Specifically, the gettext and wdiff packages were involved and the error 
message when I attempted removal of the not-fully installed packages was:
----
2 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Setting up gettext (0.17-3ubuntu2) ...

Thanks for the bug report, but these things are automatically generated
from the TeX Catalogue.

I fixed it in the upstream source of the TeX Catalogue, so it should be
fixed later on, but the case that the author re-uploads a new version
with again an error in the description ...
