Build patched VeraCrypt packages for buster
#3 Updated by segfault about 1 month ago
In buster we need custom packages for:
gnome-shell: Patches not merged yet, will not make it into Buster
gtk: Not all patches merged yet, will not make it into Buster
gjs: depends on
We don't need custom packages anymore for:
glib: VeraCrypt patch was released in 2.57.2, Buster has 2.58.3
gvfs: The latest of our patches was released in 1.38.1, which is the version currently in Buster
udisks2: last VeraCrypt patch released in 2.8.1, which is the version in Buster
gnome-disk-utility: VeraCrypt patch was released in 3.29.2 , Buster has 3.30.2. We submitted another commit in the context of #15952 to add a tooltip to the keyfile chooser button, which was only released in 3.31.90. But intrigeri wrote on #15952 that we don't need to backport this patch (except if the tests turn out to be fragile, which I assume they are not, because intrigeri didn't reopen the ticket)
gobject-introspection: This was only required because we rebuilt
glib. I thought it would also depend on
gtk, but that does not seem to be the case.
#5 Updated by segfault about 1 month ago
I built the packages for gtk and gjs today. I want to wait a bit to see if there is more progress on the gnome-shell MR before I backport that. And once I did that I will test the three packages together (gnome-shell depends on gjs and gtk) and then upload them.
