while packaging gmerlin-avdecoder i noticed a slight problem with the build-depends: it used to be libgmerlin-dev (>= 1.0.0) but since gmerlin has to be repackaged (to be dfsg compliant), the actually installed version is 1.0.0~dfsg-1now i don't understand, why >=1.0.0 is not satisfied with 1.0.0~dfsg-1 everything works fine, if i build-depend on (>= 1.0.0~dfsg) am i missing something? and if gmerlin makes a bugfix release that gets rid of the dfsg problems, so we will be able to create libgmerlin-dev_1.0.1-1, will (>=1.0.0~dfsg) be satisfied?
The special char ~ means "just below" in Debian-version-speak.So it makes good sens that a dependency on >=1.0.0 is not satisfied by
=1.0.0~anything-at-all, and that is "just below" 1.0.0.
Hope that helps. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
