Which version of Ubuntu does that work for? I tried it on my Feisty Fawn install and it didn't find any such package. --bb

It's new for Gutsy, which is a nice release, by the way. (The upgrade utility doesn't work so well, though.) -- ~John Demme me teqdruid.com

Great! I'll have to try this on my 64 bit machine after I upgrade ubuntu. Any plans on getting dmd in as a package in ubuntu too?

I think you have to add the non-free repository before it will find it (that repository is unselected by default). I don't know off the top of my head how to do that but look in the menus in Synaptic. Thanks, Nathan Reed

I see an option for third party software as a "gutsy partner". But it's not there, either, when I added it.

Not an expert, but did you add the new repository? ----- For Debian i386, and Ubuntu, there are up-to-date debian pacakges, in unofficial repository. 1. Add this line to /etc/apt/source.list deb http://d.xk.pl/debian/ unstable contrib 2. Then you can install packages as usuall in Debian: apt-get update apt-get install dmd-nonfree It will download, decompress and install dmd compiler in system. On any problem with this method please send mail to me: brayluk at smp.if.uj.edu.pl ----- That repository won't show up in any standard configuration dialog; it'll need to be added manually. However, I think Ubuntu lets you, via the Software Sources dialog, add new sources without having to manually modify source.list. -- Daniel

You're right, the 3rd parties tab in that dialog allows you to add sources by pasting the "deb ..." line in a text entry box. -- JanC

You need to add the line from the wiki4d page to your sources.list. Should be possible with Synaptic too I suppose. Then run 'apt-get update' or press some GUI button that does the same. After that dmd-nonfree should be available.

You are not allowed to put the DMD compiler binary into your downloads. I don't know if Walter is willing to give you a license though. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

Unfortunately not, however I downloaded the deb-src and added -fPIC to the makefile stuff and now I can (not that I tested whether I can link to the shared library, just test that it can make them although I would like to assume that they are use-able). Adam

Last time I tried, the problem was that the x86_64 version didn't build shared versions of all of it's own libs, and on i386 you can link a non-pic lib to a pic one, but not on most other arch, (including x86_64). So, you couldn't build a shared lib on gdc x86_64 (or at least, you couldn't really use it).
