What is new ?

In this days, i have worked to package bitcoin, i know about the oficial package.

I have updated the first post in this thread, where can find, more info about the packages i'm creating.

For example, in the bitcoin (not oficial) package, i include some files: bitcoin.conf (example file), manpage for bitcoind and bitcoin.conf, and for last the white paper of bitcoin.

manpages (to build please use a2x command):
https://github.com/tuxsoul/bitcoin/tree/debian/debian/manpages

examples:
https://github.com/tuxsoul/bitcoin/tree/debian/debian/examples

white paper:
https://github.com/tuxsoul/bitcoin/tree/debian/debian/bitcoin.pdf

At this moment i'm working to can compile packages for amd64 and packages updates more quickly.

Sorry my english is bad Smiley.
Greetings.

Great!  I'd like to see this good work make it back into mainline bitcoin; please talk with the other improve-the-build-process efforts and submit some patches.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Just installed added the launchpad repository to my 10.10 Ubuntu Maverick install and had the bitcoin-minerd package installed and generating in under 10 minutes.

Thanks for putting this together tuxsoul, you're making it much easier for people to get involved with bitcoin.

You did a great job and going to do even more! :^)

I try using cross compile to get amd64 packages, but don't work, i need one computer  where i can run for amd64 apps, i'm working to buy one.
AFAIK there is currently no way to create a amd64 package on i386 architecture.
If you have serious problems with the amd64 machine, maybe I can do ssh-access to the one for you. But this possibly not be soon.

I think is a good idea -- add symlinks "stable" to "lenny" tree, and "testing->squeeze", "unstable->sid". Its useful sometime. But remember: that symlinks must be renewed when Debian change releases.
I think this is fixed.
Hmm, i keep getting errors:

(I know this list excessive.)

In the last packages, i added a "watch" file, you can test it with "uscan", to get more quickly updates.
Excellent!

For example, in the bitcoin (not oficial) package, i include some files: bitcoin.conf (example file), manpage for bitcoind and bitcoin.conf, and for last the white paper of bitcoin.
Jonas Smedegaard <dr@jones.dk> maintainer of official debian package built bitcoin-cli, which does the same thing as your bitcoin-daemon. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=578157#77 He is currently exploring the possibility of assembling a package libdb4.8++ (See also topic http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2667.0). In his package no mans no examples, so I think you should contact Jonas Smedegaard and to merge in order to prevent the execution of double work.
I use this lines for his repo:
Code:
deb http://debian.jones.dk/ testing freedombox
deb-src http://debian.jones.dk/ testing freedombox
deb http://debian.jones.dk/ unstable freedombox
deb-src http://debian.jones.dk/ unstable freedombox

I read your man pages and have some thoughts:
In bitcoind.1.gz section EXAMPLE:
Code:
Now run:

               $ ./bitcoind
               bitcoin server starting
               $ ./bitcoind help

       A list of RPC calls will be shown:

               $ ./bitcoind getbalance
               2000.00000
I think you want to remove. "./" at the beginning of commands, as they run from /usr/bin. ("$ ./bitcoind" --> "$ bitcoind").

In COMMAND sections need add brackets to some parameters. Like: "backupwallet destination" --> "backupwallet <destination>" and "getbalance account" --> "getbalance [account]".
Also:
"getbalance" have optional parameter "[minconf=1]";
"setgenerate" lost "<generate>" parameter description. Like: "<generate> is true or false to turn generation on or off";

In bitcoin.conf.5.gz i think better move sections HISTORY and RESOURCES to bitcoind.1.gz and leave only "SEE ALSO bitcoind(1)".

U may thank me here: 14Js1ng1SvYBPgUJnjNAEPYH4d6SHF79UF

Have you considered working on the official debian package? Its maintained in the collab-maint project (http://wiki.debian.org/CollaborativeMaintenance) which would make it easy for you to participate and put your improvements in those packages, and get a much wider audience!

hmm, except the watch file is just watching the github repository, it should be watching sourceforge

I just committed examples and man pages to the debian package. Writing man pages is super boring!

I agree that working together makes sense!

but if I trying to search bitcoin I see only one package:

# apt-cache search bitcoin
bitcoin-cpuminer - Multi-threaded CPU miner for bitcoin

What I do wrong?

Gcc can do it, but don't work for me  Smiley

Hmm, i keep getting errors:

Something weird, i think this is fixed can you please test again  Wink

Thanks, but my package is one alternative to debian package, this is my TODO to bitcoind:

  • Add init script
  • use "/var" to save wallet file how root (optional)
  • use "/var/log" to save debug.log file (optional)

If someone have ideas or suggestions, please tell me.
In this moment lenny-backport (bitcoind) use "libdb4.8".

I read your man pages and have some thoughts:
...

Thanks. i will commit your suggestions in the git repository  Cheesy

Sorry for that, i can't use sourceforge why my sources tree files are different, i will like use the gavinandresen github repository, but that repository don't have tags, uscan need use tags from git repository to know last version of source code.

If you can test change the watch file to sourceforge, and force "uscan" to update the source file, please tell me what happen Wink.

Hi,

for lenny you need use backports, ex:

Code:
deb http://deb.tuxsoul.com lenny-backports main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.tuxsoul.com lenny-backports main contrib non-free

and append (debian backports):

Code:
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main

Only to bitcoind  Wink

Ok, thanx!

Offtopic: But why searching on lenny does not shows any bitcoin* packages excluding bitcoin-cpuminer?

For lenny in this moment only is possible compile bitcoin-cpuminer, to compile bitcoind is necesary new packages (backports), and for last only  i have two packages in this moment, others bitcoin apps debian packages are in debianize process ...

For example, one friend gift me SAPPHIRE X1550 ATI card, maybe i can use that card for test and packaging gpu miners, but, my pc don't have pci-e, i need work to change my pc  Grin.

Any feedback or comment are welcome ...
