UQM 0.7.0 Debian packages
« on: September 29, 2012, 05:24:49 am »

I have recently packaged UQM 0.7.0 for Debian. While these have only been tested on Debian 6 stable and Debian testing, they should build without issue on Ubuntu and other Debian derivatives. Thanks to Gekko for kindly providing hosting.

Have you tried contacting the current official maintainer of the UQM package for Debian? If he is no longer updating the package, maybe you would be willing to take over maintainership? It would be much better if Debian users could just download the most recent version of UQM directly from the Debian package manager.

(See http://packages.debian.org/stable/games/uqm.)

Thank you very much, oldlaptop! I'm using the Ubuntu 12.04 64amd binaries, with content, 3domusic and 3dovoice, works perfectly. I agree with meep-eep, the official repositories should be updated, and you would make a good maintainer.

Oh dear, I forgot about the thread on this board! Updated some time ago with more binaries and an ugly index page: http://plantmonster.homeip.net/~oldlaptop/uqm-packages/deb/uf/ (thanks again to Gekko for providing hosting, and sorry to anyone who couldn't find the right packages from the apache directory listing!)

Gekko (who has very kindly been providing hosting for these packages for nearly two years now) recently changed the domain name of his server. The new link is here:

Wow, do you have Jedi powers? I visited this topic on the saturday, tried the link and it was dead. It's like you read my mind.
In the meantime, I sent an email to the current maintainer of the uqm debian repository, Dmitry E. Oboukhov http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=unera%40debian.org
Asked him if he plans to continue updating the package.

Because Microsoft is evil, the domain name of Gekko's server has changed again. The packages can now be reached here:

http://plantmonster.ddns.net/~oldlaptop/uqm-packages/deb/uf/

At the time of writing, your DNS server may not carry the new domain name yet - simply wait a while (a few days at most) and it should work.

Thanks again to Gekko for generously hosting these packages, and for responding to this unexpected problem so quickly.

A bit of thread necromancy, but due to the mess that was handling the free domains I purchased plantmonster.net and hosted the files there for more stable access. The url is:

http://plantmonster.net/~oldlaptop/uqm-packages/deb/uf/

My understanding is that the .deb maintainer for UQM is still AWOL and there's no news about acquiring the managership for these packages.

My understanding is that the .deb maintainer for UQM is still AWOL and there's no news about acquiring the managership for these packages.

As of now, the maintainer has failed to react to a failure to build from source, and the package avoided removal only because of a non-maintainer upload. I'm not sure exactly what a non-DD can do about the situation, but I'm starting to seriously consider beginning the process of declaring the uqm packages orphaned.
