Maybe you could help point me in the right direction...
I have been considering creating a .deb that is an "empty" (metal) package
that installs all the required development libraries for source compilation.
The other possibility would be to maintain a list of the package names that
are needed to compile, this could be a wiki article and could then be
maintained by the community.
I think the wiki is probably the best way to go as it can be updated easily
as trunk changes, eg the new taglib requirement for mythmusic.
The other part of the problem is the /etc/init.d/* scripts needed and others
scripts. I guess it would be best if we used the scripts that your *.debs
use if you don't mind.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
