src bitbake ipkg

2010-04-01 Thread pike
Hi

 Bear with me :-) The bitbake recipe refers to the ipk ?
 
 bitbake recipe is build description which instructs bitbake how to
 create correct .ipk or .dep or .rpm or whatever from source archive.
 
 In thone case it's repackaging your scripts.


Thanks for being clear here. I thought long
and deep about this, and, read a manual :-)

Probably the bitbake recipe is more complicated
than the ipk it creates, but I guess that doesnt
matter on your side - you need the recipe, not
the bread.

For now, I'll try hosting the ipkg myself;
based on the one you created.

A question: why is that file different than
the ipkg  described by QTopia
http://qtextended.org/modules/developers/qtopia.php?linkFile=developers/IPKG_Howto
or even here
http://handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/BuildingIpkgs

In these descriptions, the control directory is
a directory, not a file.

just curious,

So can I push the recipe for 0.6 as is and then improve it with next
version? I would like to.. as I'm leaving tomorrow for few days..

And it's pretty simple

but those 'cp' aren't good practise as you cannot easily adjust ie file
permissions as install call does..

I never used ipkg-build manually, I guess that CONTROL is only temporary
file and CONTROL/control is what is packed in .ipk as control, so the
same.. but as I said before, I never used it manualy and I'm not .ipk
format expert :).

 just curious,
