I prepared seti's graphics binary in graphics branch . It compiles
and works as expected. To avoid forcing people to install X-related
libraries, two flavors are presented.
Current packaging style:
1. Build seti with --enable-graphics, which generate 2 binaries
2. Put both into package boinc-app-seti-graphics, and put the
no-graphics one in boinc-app-seti.
3. Mark boinc-app-seti and boinc-app-seti-graphics as in conflict with
If you upgrade to boinc-app-seti-graphics from boinc-app-seti, several
prerm/postinst will start/stop boinc-client many times, and WUs are
lost. Is there better way than declaring Conflicts?
I wonder if --enable-graphics will introduce performance penalty to
SETI. If there is, maybe a build-twice style is better.
