Removing packages marked rc

on in Development, Linux

I got an error when building the 2.32 version for ubuntu. Some packages once where installed but got removed. But they still had the status rc.

So I purged them with the help of this blog.

I compiled evolution with the help of a Makefile that I downloaded.

I had to add the “maverick” distro and install some additional packages such as:

  • gobject-introspection
  • autopoint
  • libgdata-dev

I removed the evolution-exchange plugin.

The master branch of gweather required gtk3 so I changed that to: gnome-2.30 (or something) I had to apply a patch to solve a build error.
