Ubuntu packaging updates: dbus 1.3.1, sqlite 3.7.1 and gnu psychosynth 0.1.5
SQLite and DBus
I’ve been lately packaging the latest releases of several programs for Ubuntu Lucid (or Trisquel Taranis), mainly due to our bleeding-edge requirements in Tracker. You can find them in my personal PPAs in Launchpad:
- SQLite 3.7.1 (enabling Write-Ahead logging):
- dbus 1.3.1 (enabling file descriptor passing):
The real packaging work was done by the Debian guys, of course (kudos to them!); I just prepared the necessary bits to make them get compiled as Ubuntu packages.
In addition to this, during the last GNU Hackers Meeting in The Hague, I also changed the Ubuntu packaging of GNU Psychosynth, the most entertaining music synthesizer I’ve ever played with. The latest packages are now available in the GNU Psychosynth Team’s PPA, and right now only Ubuntu versions >= Lucid will be supported (as they no longer require Andrew Fenn’s Ogre Development PPA).

Oh, and Juan Pedro was able to do another demonstration of GNU Psychosynth during the meeting, which got recorded, so that you can understand what this great program does… watch it and enjoy!
