I have been doing some testing in scratchbox - the March release of that
environment was a preview of PR1.2 so I've been testing with the
The official PR1.2 release reached my physical N900 yesterday :)
I am now considering installing syncevolution on it.
FYI Here is what I've found so far
Before PR1.2 - IN THE EMULATOR (March release)
I enabled extras and extras-testing and was able to fetch syncevolution
0.9.2 and install it and syncevolution-frontend.
Before PR1.2 - on the physical N900
Same repositories only seemed to make version 0.6 of syncevolution
available... this is puzzling.
I was also unable to install 0.9.4 - I tried to do so by visiting the
maemo package page for syncevolution and downloaded and attempted to
install the debian package- apparently it needs a newer version of
libpcre and possibly other packages. I concluded that perhaps it now
needed PR1.2 and some of it's newer libraries...
After PR1.2 - on the physical N900
The new Extras repository distribution is known as fremantle-1.2
and will house apps linked against the newer gui libs
fremantle-1.2 does not contain syncevolution
Question: Has anyone tested syncevolution and syncevolution-frontend
packages from the fremantle exras testing repository to see if they work
I suspect the answer is yes, and that they work fine (since they have
been inside the scratchbox N900 emulator)....
I may just go ahead and try it tomorrow sometime...
Question: Any plans to make syncevolution available in fremantle-1.2
It would be nice if it could continue to be made visible for upgraders.
