 * [[http://svn.mandriva.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/lyx/current/| LyX packaging for Mandriva]]

LyX is collaboratively maintained in the pkg-lyx Alioth project. It is currently maintained by PerOlofsson and SvenHoexter.

TODO

  • Send patches upstream. We should aim at having a minimal packaging, as much as possible should be sent upstream. Only Debian-specific and "packaging-specific" stuff should be kept.
    • prefer-xdg-open - Will be Debian specific until all other issue with xdg-open are solved. Discussion on lyx-devel.

    • boost-mt - Georg proposed a patch to solve it upstream. Patch should go into LyX 1.6.4.

    • detect-elyxer - interim patch to search for elyxer instead of elyxer.py. Discussion

  • Solve the rpath problem on amd64.
    • I wonder if this bug still exists. Needs to be tested. --PerOlofsson

    • It does. See thread on debian-devel. --PerOlofsson

    • We should probably ask upstream to libtoolize with a newer libtool. But I'm not sure which version is needed - is it perhaps only fixed in Debian?
    • Seems to be only fixed in Debian. http://wiki.debian.org/RpathIssue I need to get my hands on a amd64 installation to try out which of the outlined solutions could work best for LyX. --SvenHoexter

  • Provide a backport for Lenny
  • The bash_completion file can eventually be integrated upstream. LyX Bugzilla lyx-devel

  • Cleanup the Replaces and Conflicts at some point.
  • latex-xft-fonts need a transitional package or Replaces/Provides/Conflicts in ttf-lyx.
  • Maybe package eLyXer under the pkg-lyx umbrella? Discussion
