so I'm trying to create my first package, and thanks to the documentation
at http://netbsd.org/Documentation/pkgsrc, it's been going well. However,
the source package whereof I am trying to create a pkg uses a non-standard
numbering (I'm trying to make
ftp://ftp.TSP.ECE.McGill.CA/TSP/AFsp/AFsp-v7r2.tar.gz into a package, a
collection of audio file tools) and
pkglint doesn't like the -v7r2.
I couldn't see in the docs what the proper way to fix this is. Suggestions?
Once it is resolved, I can send-pr the package.
2nd related question: I will also try to make "libtsp" into a package, a
collection of audio processing subroutines) Unfortunately, AFsp already
contains and installs some of libtsp (essentially, only what is needed for
the binaries, since libtsp is normally a static library), so I'm guessing
they will conflict in some way.
What is the best way to resolve this?
- AFsp could simply link with its own redux version of libtsp but not
install any of it in /usr/pkg/lib
- modify the AFsp package to not have libtsp in it, and instead make it
depend on the (bigger) libtsp - perhaps even dynamically linked?
(note that I personally know the author, and can suggest changes, it's just
he doesn't often have time to spend on it)
Thanks for suggestions.
PS, the "home" of the software is
