Linux versions of dreambox related software - 09-December-2010, 10:32

I am not complaining, or bashing. However I would respectfully request
Linux versions of dreambox related software. I under stand that dreambox's themselves are Linux based. Myself, I run Ubuntu Linux. With the dissatisfaction of
Vista, XP becoming obsolete, and the price of either of them being
inhibitive(and ridiculous); Linux is gaining popularity as a mainstream
operating system. Ubuntu Linux especially since it is free, and has
excellent support via web based forums. Once again, please
consider creating Linux versions of dreambox related software . If
help or advice is needed, please feel free to contact the thousands of programmers at
http://ubuntuforums.org/index.php

Please release it under the GNU license , and create a proper centralized software repository for it.
That way, linux users and windows users can update and find software with ease.
The commands that is used to invoke a update on kubuntu systems is:

apt-get update (updates the sources list )
apt-get upgrade (upgrades the software)
apt-get dist-upgrade ( upgrades the distribution/system )

To install a program/software package:
apt-get install dreamboxedit
That installs dreamboxedit for linux, and other packages it may need.

Of course, there does not exist a dreamboxedit version for linux at present.

It is also possible to implement the apt-get feature in all of the existing and future versions of Dreambox firmware.

The user simply has to add the following two lines in a file called /etc/apt/sources.list. The required lines can be supplied by default in existing and future versions of Dreambox firmware

.A example is:

deb http://digsat.net/packages/dreambox/latest maveric tools

deb-src http://digsat.net/packages/dreambox/latest maveric tools

Those lines tells APT where to look for files related to the distribution of Kubuntu 10.10 Maveric Meerkat .

The entries in this file normally follow this format:

deb http://host/debian distribution section1 section2 section3
deb-src http://host/debian distribution section1 section2 section3

Of course, the above entries are fictitious and should not be used. The first
word on each line, deb or deb-src, indicates the type
of archive: whether it contains binary packages (deb), that is,
the pre-compiled packages that we normally use, or source packages
(deb-src), which are the original program sources plus the Debian
control file (.dsc) and the diff.gz containing the
changes needed for `debianizing' the program.

Some how-to's:


APT Manual

Creating and managing a APT repository how to's:


http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/286


http://wiki.debian.org/HowToSetupADebianRepository

The Advanced Packaging Tool , or APT, is a free user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution and its variants.

A windows version is:

http://windows-get.sourceforge.net/index.php

I recommend this tool:

http://wiki.debian.org/SecureApt

It is a good idea to create a signed repository.
Gnupg is the proper software for creating signatures.


Gnupg allows anyone to encrypt and sign data and communication, features a
versatile key management system as well as access modules for all
kinds of public key directories. GnuPG, also known as
GPG, is a command line tool with features for easy
integration with other applications. A wealth of
frontend applications and libraries are available. GnuPG is the GNU project's
complete and free implementation of the OpenPGP standard as defined by RFC4880.
