Thanks for passing this very useful information along. I made a reference to it on the Wiki so I can use it myself at a later time.

If you just want to compile a package from a repository without armhf support, you can also just doing this :

1) Add the repository to the /etc/apt/source.list
2) doing

Code: Select all

apt-get build-dep packagename
3) compile the package with

Code: Select all

apt-get -b source packagename
4) install the deb created with

Code: Select all

dpkg -i packagename-version.deb
5) remove the build-dep with this script :

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

package=$1

aptitude markauto $(apt-cache showsrc $package | grep Build-Depends | perl -p -e 's/(?:[[(].+?[])]|Build-Depends:|,||)//g')
Just run the script like this

Code: Select all

./scriptname packagename

Return to “Raspbian”
