jaunty repositories lack usbmuxd

Reported by Pallinger Péter | November 10th, 2009 @ 09:31 AM

Also, the source package does not create usbmuxd*.deb on dpkg-buildpackage, it only produces libusbmux0',libusbmux-dev' and libusbmux0-dbg'.<br/> As far as I see, there are no debhelper scripts for usbmuxd, only an usbmuxd entry in the control file.

Most probably this is the reason why ifuse does not recognise the attached iphone:

$ sudo ifuse /media/iphone No device found, is it connected?
If it is make sure that your user has permissions to access the raw usb device.

If you're still having issues try unplugging the device and reconnecting it.

Am I wrong?

    the usbmuxd daemon is included in the libusbmux0 package.
    If the daemon is not launched automatically by udev, you could try to launch it manually typing

    sudo /usr/sbin/usbmuxd

    Hmm, shouldn't the daemon be packaged within an usbmuxd package?
    Also mind there is no libusbmux0 library, but a libusbmuxd1 library (also mind the changed soname major).
    Thus you should have usbmuxd, libusbmuxd1, libusbmuxd1-dev and iproxy out of the usbmuxd tarball.

    Maybe I should have, but the current debian/control contains only the following packages:
    libusbmux0, libusbmux-dev, libusbmux0-dbg, and iproxy.
    If I have the time, I will try to correct the packaging scripts, and maybe also add an usbmuxd init script.

    @Pallinger: There is no need for an init script. usbmuxd is designed to be started on demand by udev.

    Jonathan, aren't you packaging the Ubuntu debs?

    I was for my ppa.
    This is currently being taken over by Julien Lavergne (a Ubuntu MOTU) for next releases.
    See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/479467
    So the libiphone stack will be in the official repository from Ubuntu 10.4.

    Once the real packaging is done i will backport them in my ppa.

    Closing this ticket as backport is done with proper packaging with usbmux 1.0.0 (had to call it 1.0.1 due to stupid version ordering).
