    That is a known and fixed bug with the initial 0.4.1 release. It's been fixed, and the 0.4.1 package has been re-released. Please re-download the package from Sourceforge.

    Re: Build (backport) an newer Ubuntu package to run on an older Ubuntu version

    I've just tried a backport build of Evolution, but I get the following which stops it:
    Code:
     -> Considering  cdbs (>= 0.4.37)
          Tried versions: 0.4.34ubuntu4
       -> Does not satisfy version, not trying
    E: Could not satisfy build-dependency.
    Now, I actually built (and installed) a cdbs backport which is now 0.4.46ubuntu7~6.06prevu1, but I still get this error.

    It's probably something obvious, but can someone let me know?
    Regards, David.

    I am not sure whether you manage to backport Evolution because as I understand it is very much integrated in Gnome. Anyway, you may try.

    First of all, make sure that you use a local repository for your backported packages. To do it you need to put
    Code:
    deb file:/var/cache/prevu/dapper-debs ./
    in your source list, if you are on Dapper. I am not 100% sure that it is needed but to be on the safe side it's worth doing.

    Then after building a new package you have to run
    Code:
    sudo prevu-update
    to add newly built library/development package in you building environment. After that you should be fine.

    Re: Build (backport) an newer Ubuntu package to run on an older Ubuntu version

    I have another problem. I am trying to backport dvd::rip, but prevu builds a Dapper version instead of Edgy:
    Code:
    :~$ prevu dvdrip
    I: Building against currently running distro: dapper
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Need to get 526kB of source archives.
    Get: 1 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com dapper/multiverse video-dvdrip 1:0.52.5-0.0 (dsc) [591B]
    Get: 2 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com dapper/multiverse video-dvdrip 1:0.52.5-0.0 (tar) [520kB]
    While in Edgy packages:
    Code:
    dvdrip (1:0.98.1-0.1ubuntu1) [multiverse] perl front end for transcode
    I wonder if the name has been changed in some way? Any idea? I tried to comment out Dapper source repo, but then prevu cannot find dvd::rip
    Code:
    ~$ prevu dvdrip
    I: Building against currently running distro: dapper
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    E: Unable to find a source package for video-dvdrip

    Re: Build (backport) an newer Ubuntu package to run on an older Ubuntu version

    Do you have deb-src lines for Edgy or Feisty Multiverse?

    For some reason it cannot get sources for multiverse, while it fetches main and universe all right - NO IT IS NOT TRUE...

    it happens only with dvdrip

    Try using feisty as your source instead of edgy.... This would not be a prevu bug though, more of an apt problem if anything else. Prevu uses "apt-get source <packagename>" to fetch source packages.
