> thanks to some bugging and help from dons and sjanssen, I finally got
> some 0.5 packages for debian. You can find them, together with the X11
> 1.4.1 dependency, here:
> No xmonad contrib yet, sorry, I’ll look at that next. The packages are
> beta-quality and not tested very much, I hope that you can help me
> there :-)
> I decided to split the package up, here is the quote from README.Debian:
> > The packages for debian are split in four:
> > * xmonad
> > This package contains only the xmonad binary (with it’s man page) in the
> > default configuration. You do not have to install the haskell compiler to
> > use this package, but you also cannot reconfigure it to your needs. To do
> > that, you need the libghc6-xmonad-dev package. If that is installed, xmonad
> > will detect your configuration when you start it and compile a custom
> > executable in ~/.xmonad transparently.
> > * libghc6-xmonad-dev
> > This package contains the actual xmonad library, which you need to compile
> > your custom configuration.
> > * libghc6-xmonad-doc
> > This package contains the documentation for xmonad, including an example
> > configuration file.
> > * libghc6-xmonad-prof
> > Profiling information. You’ll know when you need it.
> If you want to help out, I manage the xmonad package in a darcs
> repository that contains the regular patches from upstream with the
> addition of the debian files and my own adjustments to the xmonad
> Comments and patches are very appreciated.
Wonderful work Joachim!
