Gentlemans,

is it possible to build some version of D for ALT Linux (the biggest russian 
version of Linux and one of most used distributions here, 
http://en.altlinux.org/Main_Page ) and add to the list of available 
downloads? It would be absolutely great to see it in 
http://en.altlinux.org/Sisyphus ...

thank you, with hope :)

Well, I don't know who produces the rpm or deb, so I don't know how likely it is to get something for ALT Linux. I've never heard of it and have no idea what package format it uses. However, if all you're looking to do is install dmd, then simply download the zip file, unzip it somewhere, and add /path/to/unzipped/dmd2/linux/bin to your path, and it should work. There's no need to install it in /usr or whatnot. It works quite easily from the unzipped zip file. - Jonathan M Davis

It's an very rationalised distribution with big packet base, often mentioned as main distribution for so named "schoolar project" (an efforts for migration in education and goverment use). So some minimal support for it may be very usefull to acquaint developers accross Russia and xUSSR with D. It uses rpm and apt, patched for rpm. Preparation is very simple, rpm specs are rationalised, too. Peoples in ALT and community are friendly, so problems may be solved very quickly.
 However, if all you're looking to do is install dmd, then simply download

Thank you, i'll see. Unfortunately i'm not shure dmd can helps and of course, peoples rudely hopes for native solution... :) thank you! -- /GLeb * Institute of Atmospheric Optics, SB RAS, Tomsk, Russia

I see. But addition of another option to the list of downloads (http://digitalmars.com/d/download.html) will not break the license?

Linking to the downloads certainly doesn't break any licenses. You're telling people where to get it, not distributing it yourself.

I see. But the initial question was -- is it possible to assemble dmd for specific (but with large community, so it is not somewhat marginal) distribution? Sources are not in public, so i can't do it for myself

Sure they're public. Just unpack the zip and look in the "src" directory. All the sources are right there.

 What's the approximate total amount of people that uses ALT-Linux?

Hard to estimate, i do afraid. If overlook some statistic of ALT's forum (http://forum.altlinux.org/index.php?action=stats), there are circa 6680 of *registered* users in the forum and even more in subscription lists (http://lists.altlinux.org/). In another side, ALT is the second mentioned distribution in xUSSR (after Ubuntu, of course). And finally, it is base of the state project of implementation of free and open software for school and goverment use. By statistic of 2008, there are circa 70000 general (1 -- 11 years of education) schools in Russia (http://medportal.ru/enc/parentschildren/school/16/), so common quantity of pupil may be estimated in 20 000 000, so as minimum 9 000 000 of pupils should teach IT. 30% of schools should use Linux exclusively or together with Windows. So may mention upper estimate as 2 700 000 active users. As far as i can imagine by discussions, 60% of that choose ALT and derivatives, rest prefer Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Edubuntu). Some percents selects Open SuSe and Mandriva. So rough and optimistic estimation of summary ALT's user base may be circa 1 620 000 of pupils. Of cource, many of that 30% of schools does not use any Lniux at all, so estimation should be reduced, but from the other side, there are many professional peoples in IT and companies besides education that defenitelly do. But in any case, estimated user base is substantively large and may be interested to propagate technology of D among them. :) -- /GLeb * Institute of Atmospheric Optics, SB RAS, Tomsk, Russia

If you want to restribute dmd, as long as you have a decent reason, pretty much all you have to do is ask Walter for permission. The license stops you from just redistributing it on your own, but Walter gives permission fairly freely. - Jonathan M Davis

I think he means that some people expect unix apps to do things "the unix way", which is scattering the parts of each application across the filesystem.

No, i mean application coherently builded accross distribution, i.e., using dynamically linked libraries, not conflicting with any apps/libraries and so on. -- /GLeb * Institute of Atmospheric Optics, SB RAS, Tomsk, Russia

Even on that, you can still compile to 32 bit and run. (Although if you're doing scientific computing then maybe you really do need to compile for 64 bit.)
