Anyone out there running Debian Stretch (latest version)? I'm wondering if build 20 has already been compiled by someone for deb

Our usual Debian packager didn't have any time for this release, so I opened a bug with Debian asking them to update. I can't find it now though.

I'm running Debian testing (Buster, soon to become the new release (10)), but I compile from source if I want to use a new Widelands release or trunk. The bug is at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=928325 . If I understand Debian's release and packaging processes well, this is what needs to happen:

  • Build 20 needs to be packaged;
  • after Buster has been released, this package can move to the testing repository (what will become Bullseye (11));
  • if that works, the package can be backported to Buster;
  • a 'sloppy-backport' can possibly be provided for Stretch (9).

Runs fine, on both Stretch and Buster.

Yes, that is the correct way.

It would not be overly difficult to build a x86-64 .deb package for buster and self-host that at web page. The correct way happens when it happens, a self-build package could be online tomorrow. And after that, one could of course self-build for stretch, too. And why not do i386, ARM32, ARM64 etc (I guess this is a long list). I am not suggesting this, but if lack of an easy install path is a problem for the tournament or so, there are doors that could be opened.

I just noticed that Buster (Debian 10) is out. The update program though just installed 9.9, guess there's a lag or something. Does Widelands 20 exist for Debian 10?

Looks like the debian packegers doesn't updated the package fur Debian 10: https://packages.debian.org/buster/widelands

But you can compile yourself ....

One can also download random binaries from the internet, and hope that they work right and contain no malware.
