    Requesting new packages for the Yoper repository


    I'm pretty certain both these questions have answers somewhere really obvious. However, since I'm not too bright:

    1. How does one request new packages to be added to the repository? I don't want to personally create the RPMs (I'm a user, not a developer), but for example, I would like to have N|vu and Gyach "yoperized" and improved for performance on Yoper if possible.

    I have seen individual requests and responses by Yoper developers on this forum - is there some formalized way of doing this though?

    2. Just to be absolutely clear - how exactly do I install debian packages on my system? I've never used Debian, and so I'm not sure how it works - is there a tool in Yoper that can install deb packages? Kpackage doesn't seem to open them...

    Thanks!

    There used to be a thread and then a special subforum for that, but now, since the Yoper forums are dead I guess ther is no legal way to do it
    Anyway, you should consider creating your own packages and contributing them to the repository. You don't need to be a programmer for that. Just follow the steps from the Andreas's howto (you'll get it only using Google cached pages cuz the forum pages are down) and you'll see it's a piece of cake.
    Quick howto is also available here: http://www.bluefossil.com/yoper/Unof...PM_Guide-.html

    apt-get install alien
    alien --help

    Thanks a lot!

    ~I'll look into submitting my own ... if it doesn't take too much time I wouldn't mind giving back to Yoper like this.
