    [Notes] Building gvim in KNOPPIX 7.4.2

    I am by no means an KNOPPIX/Linux guru and just would like to share my notes about installing the missing gvim in KNOPPIX 7.4.2.

    At the time of writing, neither of vim-gnome/vim-gtk for wheezy or that of jessie can be installed straightaway due to the nature of KNOPPIX. A quick solution to the tricky situation is to retrieve and install all the matching build-depends packages from the snapshot and normal servers and then compile vim-gnome/vim-gtk from source.

    Part 1 of 3: retrieve and install the build-depends packages
    • Boot KNOPPIX without persistent image.
    • With root privilege, append the following to /etc/atp/sources.list .

    Code:
    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20140822T041524Z/ testing main
    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20140827T042507Z/ testing main
    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20140930T043556Z/ testing main
    • With root privilege, update the package list.

    Code:
    apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update
    • Download the build-depends packages with specific version.

    Code:
    # --start-- build-depends

    • With root privilege, purge libgnutls-dev and then install the downloaded packages with gdebi in the same order as above.

    Code:
    apt-get purge libgnutls-dev
    gdebi -n {deb packages}
    Part 2 of 3: build the vim related packages

    • Download the source files of vim (2:7.4.488-3~bpo70+1; wheezy backport)

    Code:
    # Save the files on a native Linux filesystem for a smoother build.
    wget \
    http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vim/vim_7.4.488.orig.tar.gz \
    http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vim/vim_7.4.488-3~bpo70+1.debian.tar.gz
    • Extract the tarballs and move the debian folder to the folder of source code.
    • With root privilege, purge ruby1.8 as it's listed as a build-conflict in the control file.

    Code:
    apt-get purge ruby1.8
    • Check if the size of terminal is at least 80x24, otherwise the "tests" will fail during compilation.
    • Build the vim*.deb packages with dpkg-buildpackages or debuild.
    • Save the vim related packages and liblua5.2-0=5.2.1-3+deb7u1 package on a hard drive.


    Part 3 of 3: install vim related packages


    • Reboot KNOPPIX with persistent image enabled.
    • With root privilege, purge vim (2:7.4.335-1) and its related packages

    Code:
    apt-get purge vim vim-runtime vim-common vim-gui-common
    • With root privilege, install the liblua5.2-0 package and the newly built vim packages with gdebi in the order of liblua5.2-0, vim-runtime, vim-common, vim-gui-common and vim-gnome.



    Final thoughts


    Since the vim packages are built against a newer version of libsepol1 than that of the stock KNOPPIX 7.4.2, should it also be included in the overlay image? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Impressive! As for the overlay, I think you should try. If a library is statically linked, should there be any problem? You might also get hold of Knoppix 7.5 and check if the problem persists.
