Welcome

Hello and welcome on my sites. Following the URL - you probably already guessed it - everything here is about Debian, the Linux distribution I've learned to love and appreciate. So I hope, I can support this famous distribution a bit with these sites.

I will not longer provide packages of the bluefish-project for the Ubuntu distribution, because I lack time and interest in building and maintaining the necessary environments. Ubuntu-users however can still install and use recent releases of bluefish by changing to the PPA provided by Klaus Vormweg, who kindly agreed to officially provide packages for the bluefish-project. Please follow the instructions given at https://launchpad.net/~klaus-vormweg/+archive/bluefish.

Entries in your sources.list pointing to my repository will lead to the above mentioned PPA. But because Klaus is only offering the main-tree in his PPA, you might see some errors thrown by apt-get|aptitude|... as long as you keep my repository in your sources.list. So you probably want to remove any reference to my repository together with my repository key and/or the wgdd-archive-keyring package.

# remove sources.list snippets
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_*.list
# find any references left
grep -rn debian.wgdd.de /etc/apt/sources.list* # --> now delete those entries
# remove and purge the wgdd-archive-keyring package
apt-get autoremove --purge wgdd-archive-keyring
# or delete the key, if you never had the above package installed
apt-key del E394D996

You are done. Now download and install recent packages:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

The following distribution releases have been removed from my Debian repository, because support by the Debian/Ubuntu project has been dropped or is about to be dropped: Debian lenny (5.0) and Ubuntu hardy (8.04), intrepid (8.10), jaunty (9.04) and karmic (9.10). There won't be any updates to bluefish packages for these distribution releases too. The following entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list will lead to HTML error 410 running apt-get or apt-file:

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian lenny main contrib non-free

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/debian oldstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/debian oldstable main contrib non-free

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu hardy main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu hardy main restricted universe multiverse

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu intrepid main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu intrepid main restricted universe multiverse

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu jaunty main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu jaunty main restricted universe multiverse

deb     http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu karmic main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://debian.wgdd.de/ubuntu karmic main restricted universe multiverse

Maybe you have downloaded one of my snippets to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. In this case the following files contain offending entries and are obsolete:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_lenny.list

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_804_hardy.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_810_intrepid.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_904_jaunty.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_910_karmic.list

The repository-key had expired. The expiration date of the renewed key has been set to be October 20th 2012. You will have to update the key in your apt keyring by either using the pgp.mit.edu keyserver or a local keyfile in ASCII format at wgdd_archive_key.asc or by updating the wgdd-archive-keyring Debian package. Detailed information can also be found here.

01/2010

With the release candidate 2 for Bluefish 2.0 my repository provides bluefish packages for the amd64 and i386 architecture. They will be automatically installed when you update your installed bluefish-unstable packages:

# apt-get dist-upgrade
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  bluefish bluefish-data bluefish-dbg bluefish-plugins
The following packages will be upgraded:
  bluefish-unstable bluefish-unstable-data bluefish-unstable-dbg bluefish-unstable-plugins

The latter became so called "transitional packages" and don't provide any functionality. They can be safely removed after upgrading to the bluefish packages:

# apt-get autoremove --purge bluefish-unstable bluefish-unstable-data bluefish-unstable-dbg bluefish-unstable-plugins

The package upgrade/installation will further replace any installation of the bluefish packages of Debian and Ubuntu!

11/2009

Because of my own mistake the server and the whole domain wgdd.de were unreachable since this morning. This has been fixed now and everything should work as expected.

10/2009

The repository-key has expired at October 16th 2009. The expiration date of the renewed key has been set to be October 17th 2010. You will have to update the key in your apt keyring by either using the pgp.mit.edu keyserver or a local keyfile in ASCII format at wgdd_archive_key.asc or by updating the wgdd-archive-keyring Debian package. Detailed information can also be found here.

08/2009

Packages of bluefish-unstable are now built for Ubuntu Jaunty instead of Intrepid. You must adjust the entries in /etc/apt/sources.list or update /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu.list.

You'll receive a 410 HTML error code ("resource gone") using the old entries.

03/2009

Packages of bluefish-unstable for the amd64 architecture are now available. Many thanks to Olivier Sessink for providing a build-daemon.

02/2009

Because of a broken alias, the path /ubuntu/dists/intrepid/ was not available and resulted in a 404 error. This has been fixed now. Update: /ubuntu/pool/ should also work (again) now. Thanks to Peter M. for the information.

02/2009

The bluefish-unstable packages for Etch have been removed from the repository. The 1.1 development series has been superseeded by the 1.3 series (1.0 is still the current stable series!), which needs Glib/Gtk versions higher than available in Etch. Unfortunately, the necessary versions are also not available from backports.org. So I can\'t build packages for for Etch :(. If you have some self-packaged or -compiled versions of these libraries, you can of course build the application from its source.

01/2009

The Ubuntu Hardy repository has been dropped and replaced by an Intrepid repository. If you need the bluefish-unstable package for an Ubuntu hardy installation, keep the deb-src entry from this snippet, get the source and the build-dependencies. Then build the package(s) and install them.

apt-get source bluefish-unstable
apt-get build-dep bluefish-unstable
cd bluefish-unstable-version
debuild -us -uc
...
dpkg -i package.deb

The same goes for building the package for a different architecture than i386!

11/2008

Some more improvements to the page design. An IE rendering flaw has been fixed. The navigation-sidebar now contains a link to bring you back to the top of the page. Dead links and some validity issues have been fixed too.

10/2008

I now provide small snippets to download into /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ so you don't have to edit /etc/apt/sources.list. The necessary commands are described here. Every snippet is limited to one release. So if you want to have the entries for more than one release (e.g. Sid+Experimental) you have to download several files.

10/2008

The repository-key has expired at October 16th 2008. The new expiration date of the renewed key is October 16th 2009. You will have to update the key in your apt keyring. It can be found at the pgp.mit.edu keyserver or locally in ASCII format in wgdd_archive_key.asc. Detailed information can be found here.

02/2008

Several packages have been removed from the archive:

CDK
The »Chemistry Development Kit« (CDK) now has been officially packaged and uploaded by Michael Koch. If you still have my packages installed, first uninstall/purge libcdk-java-doc, cdk und libcdk-java-dirbrowser (completely) and then install the current version of libcdk-java. Scripts found in cdk will probably be added to the Debian distribution soon.
Jchempaint
Jchempaint has been merged into CDK some time ago and there are plans to build/package it for Debian. My packages were just outdated. Please expect updated packages from the Debian mirror next to you :)
Jmol
Ditto. We are working on an official Debian package. I'm not planning nor working on an official Debian package. But there is an ITP for it.
MOLDEN
This package was outdated. The current release is version 4.6. The packaging files have been moved to the debichem groups SVN. You can build the package yourself by using svn-buildpackage. Just download the MOLDEN source and the packaging files. Then set the configuration option svn-override=buildArea for svn-buildpackage to the place where the upstream tarball resists (create the symlink molden_4.6.orig.tar.gz -> molden4.6.tar.gz) and run svn-buildpackage with your preferred options.
We are currently not allowed to distribute MOLDEN binaries or its source with the Debian distribution. But we are in contact with upstream.
clamassassin
There is an official Debian package for some time now. However, the package only ships the clamssassin script, but not clamdassassin.

11/2007

I've changed some parts of the site design and made some changes that I had on my TODO list for some time now. These changes have not yet been tested for the IE 6 browser, but I do not expect much of my visitors to use this browser. However, I will of course care about remaining issues asap. Testing the changes with all other browsers succeeded for me. If you still observe an issue, please do not hesitate to contact/inform me.

10/2007

The repository archive key had expired at October 10th 2007. The new expire date is October 15th 2008. You will have to update the key in your apt keyring. The updated key can be found at pgp.mit.edu keyserver or locally in ASCII format in wgdd_archive_key.asc. Detailed information can be found in section Archive signing key.

07/2007

There are some new packages in the repository provided by Ondřej Čertík. You can identify these packages by the token oc in the Debian revision number. For discussion or questions about these packages, write to Ondřej, because I'm neither responsible for these packages nor do I co-maintain them.

05/2007

gURLChecker has been officially packaged for the Debian project. I'm therefor going to remove my own package of this piece of software from my repository. Updating to the official Debian packages should work without problems.

02/2007

Ubuntu support will be stopped and the repository for packages built for Ubuntu removed.

10/2006

The repository archive key has expired. I've changed the expiration date, so you will have to update the key in your apt keyring. The updated key can be found at pgp.mit.edu keyserver or locally in ASCII format in wgdd_archive_key.asc. Detailed information can be found in section Archive signing key.

09/2006

Debian now officially contains packages for Gtk+Extra 2.0. So I removed the packages from my repository. Please use the ones officially provided by Debian. There is no automatic way of upgrading to the official Debian packages, so you have to remove my packages first

$ su -c "apt-get remove --purge libgtkextra-2.0-1 libgtkextra-2.0-1-dev"

before you install the official Debian packages!

09/2006

The chemical-mime-data package is now officially part of the Debian distribution. The gnome-chemistry-utils package will follow in a few days. The package itself is ready, but we have to wait until the dbus-transition finished. The bkchem and gchempaint programs will follow soon. Because of these changes, the mentioned packages have been removed from my repository.

04/2006

The repository archive key had expired. I've changed the expiration date, so you will have to update the key in your apt keyring. The updated key can be found at pgp.mit.edu keyserver or locally in ASCII format in wgdd_archive_key.asc. Detailed information can be found in section Archive signing key.

10/2005

My repository is now signed. So you maybe get the following warning when running apt-get from Debian Etch or Sid or Ubuntu Breezy:

W: GPG error: http://debian.wgdd.de unstable Release: The following signatures 
   couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 0F719C35E394D996
W: You may want to run »apt-get update« to correct these problems

Please read the related information about how getting my key under Archive signing key.

08/2005

I am the new official maintainer for the Bluefish Debian package. My repository will contain Bluefish packages for the CVS-version and release candidates in the future (for testing purposes and feedback), but packages for the final release will directly go into Debian.

05/2005

My work on the xMule packages has gone into official Debian packages. So I will no longer provide xMule packages.

05/2005

Bluefish packages built from CVS are located in experimental. The package is called bluefish-cvs. You can install and test it besides the stable bluefish package, because both packages install and use completely independent directories and files.
