Re: [Fink-devel] ideas on pseudo packages

How about if the package installs a shell script in %i/bin which detects
the version number, and then this shell script is called in post-install?

okay so we need to determ the system versions, so make a configure file
that will fail if no = a certain version

then of course the sucky part we need a Darwin1.3, 1.4 and 5.2 etc etc and
the user has to install the pkg...that is off the top of my head i know
sucks but it's a starting point so that we can expand on it.  I'll think
of more too.  BTW sorry Max i understand what you mean now.

The issue here is different, because the version of the darwin/macosx 
packages are to be determined on the fly. The versions of normal 
virtual packages are static, though.

unless we add this in fink it's self with a fink base-upgrade which will
run the checks and find the closest pkgs.  That could be done, but then we
have the dpkg problem.

package darwin52 checks in post-install (by running script) if it is
darwin 5.2 which is on the system.  If not, it gives an error and
the package doesn't install.

(with an informative message suggesting to install darwin51 or whatever)

we would need to give users advice, separately, that whenever they
upgrade OS X they should reinstall certain packages
