Ubuntu Lucid PPA?

Post by PTSnoop » 12 Jun 2010, 12:57

At the moment, the Ubuntu "PPA for Spring Developers" only supports Hardy to Karmic. Are we going to be getting a Lucid version any time soon?

When talking to (possibly-)non-Ubuntu users, use version numbers, not version names. i assume Lucid is 10.04.

Yes Lucid is 10.04 and I agree, ubuntu's code names drive me up the wall.

Spring is already in the repos mate.

Just search for it via software centre.

Spring 0.80.5.2 is in the repos, yes. But that version's been out of date since January, and the repo version's not likely to get better any time soon.

I've been using the 9.10 Karmic ppa files, which work ok but give me an error message every time I try to update anything. Since 10.04 Lucid is a long-term release, it makes sense for the ppa to support it rather than stopping at 9.10 (which isn't).

No the version in the Lucid repos is the current spring version actually.

Did you search the software centre?

I'm not talking about springs own repository, Spring + SpringLobby is in the ubuntu repos, the current up to date version.

Actually your right i didn't notice it's not the bigfix .1 release.

Still...newer than PTSnoop was on about...so i'm now totally with him on the fact that we need newer spring version!

Hmm, that's odd. I'm looking at Synaptic now, and the packages spring, spring-common and spring-dbg are all version 0.80.5.2-2ubuntu1.

But spring-engine is 0.81.2-0ubuntu1, which is the same version as the PPA for Karmic (which is why I assumed my laptop was getting that package from the PPA rather than the ubuntu repos). And spring works fine with just spring-engine, so why are the spare packages there?

yah so do the numbers. It should just be 1, 2, 3, 4, not this year.month nonsense. But it's a great OS.
