(4) update to previous step (4) below.

The mahoro library fails on certain types of jpg files (e.g. some of those created by gimp or convert), when all of these are the stable versions on etch. This is in addition to failing to detect flv files.

For this reason, it's probably easiest to fall back to the pre-mahoro method of recognising files, since otherwise many users will get annoyed and have their files (unjustifiably) rejected.

See the patch file 080721_content_type_etch-0.2.patch attached.

(file #16165)

(1) Use this script to override the dependence on libruby1.8 >= The idea is to recreate the debian package with an override of the dependency.

(2) Fix the sync.rb bug if you haven't already done it:

(3) Fix (one line fix) bug 23848:

(4) On etch, something fails for the mahoro front end + the magic file detection library + ruby in detecting flv files. Here is a hack to fix this:

(5) If you wish to apply patches on which remain open, then those with [080703-2] or [080703] in the title should work.
