Subject Re: Buildding a Ubuntu / Debian package for Cassandra
Date Thu, 16 Sep 2010 17:54:22 GMT
Hello Francois, 

There are already .debs available here:

http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/DebianPackaging

I've also setup a PPA to build the packages on Ubuntu here:

https://launchpad.net/~cassandra-ubuntu/+archive/stable

Its currently still at v0.6.4, but I am in the process of uploading 0.6.5 as I write this
email..

The .debs are nearly identical. The only difference is that I've packaged the jars necessary
to build, so that you get the same exact versions of all libraries if you need to patch +
repeat the build. Also, these are built specifically for Ubuntu releases, so if we find any
incompatibilities between debian/ubuntu we can fix them for ubuntu users. 

I hope this helps!

I see that you have a ./debian directory in the source builds, do you have a bit more background
on how it is used and build?
