Re: How to obtain some dependencies

You're welcome.

"apt-get build-dep" does only fetch and install packages like "apt-get
install foobar2.0-100". There is no right or wrong directory you can
fire this command from.

Ok. I see, I was too fast. Run "apt-get source beagle" inside a
directory where you want to mess around with your sources (:-). You will
get some archives and a folder named beagle-whatever. If you navigate
your terminal into this directory and fire "dpkg-buildpackage -b
-rfakeroot" (for example) you will get all the .debs you possibly want.

To build packages you need a debian folder inside the source directory.
You can start packaging from scratch but I would not recommend this for
a beginner. This is why I suggested getting (per apt-get source) the
official Ubuntu source and copying the debian folder to the official
0.2.8 source code directory - and forgot to mention, that you should add
an entry to the debian/changelog file stating that you are comiling
0.2.8 and not 0.2.7.

Alltogether this could become quite difficult, so I offered you my
packages (and further support, if you want it). Those aren't perfect but
work perfectly.

Because you are using a Debian system I would strongly advice you not to
use "./configure && make && make install" after getting the build deps
for beagle. Debian offers such a nice packaging-system.
