I just finished gathering all dependencies and compiling beagle. I found other packages that were required and were not included in the howto, which I think should be included in the DebianInstall howto to help others.
Only one package was required that was not included, mozilla-dev. I also used the ubuntu package for gmime2.1 and it worked fine in debian unstable (this is included in the howto).
Another thing that I found that could help is the fact that there is no help for the debian users who want to compile their own custom kernel with the patch. I know it is quite simple, but still I'll include the part that I did to work for me. BTW, the deb package that is provided by the link ( http://puccioland.altervista.org/kernel/kernel-image-2.6.9.inotify_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
) it is unaccesible at least for me.
iNotify patched custom kernel for debian:
All instructions should be done as root.
First get the kernel source. ( In this case kernel-source-2.6.10 ) :
# apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.10
Unpack the kernel source:
# cd /usr/src
# bunzip2 kernel-source-2.6.10.tar.bz2
# tar xvf kernel-source-2.6.10.tar
# ln -s kernel-source-2.6.10 linux
Download the patch for the kernel 2.6.10 ( http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/rml/inotify/v2.6/0.19/inotify-0.19-rml-2.6.10-2.patch
) and apply it to the kernel.
# patch -p0 < /path/to/downloaded/inotify/inotify-0.19-rml-.2.6.10-2.patch
Configure your kernel options, including iNotify under Device Drivers/Character Devices.
# cd /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.10/
# make menuconfig
If this is a recompile don't forget to clean :
# make-kpkg clean
Compile the custom kernel the debian way
# make-kpkg kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
Install the new custom kernel
# cd /usr/src/
# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.10.Custom.deb kernel-headers-2.6.10.Custom.deb kernel-headers-2.6.10.Custom.deb modules-image-2.6.10.Custom.deb
Hope it helps.
