[GNUnet-developers] experimental debian packages

I have some experimental debian packages available at

You will find see debs of libextractor and libgcrypt as the GNUnet debs
depend on them.

They still need a bit of work, currnetly GNUnet runs from init.d as root
which i see is discouraged, i will change it when i decide what user it
should be. Its enabled by default as well, i will put something in to
make it a more conscious decision to start so users are more aware its

Its setup to use system wide config, i think people will get sick of
type -c /etc/gnunet.conf, but debian discourages user specific config
files if there is an alternative.

I think it would be advantagous to have it running system wide anyway as
all users can pool the archive, what are the technical disadvantages ?

So if you try these packages keep in mind that nobody else has tested
them, and feedback is most welcome.

They wont become offical debs until after the next libgcrypt release and
theyve been tested a lot more.

And Christian, I see now the changes i need to make to the config file
handling, namely variable substitution.

I think having some stats in gnunet-gtk would pretty nice as well.
