Topic: Scratchbox Installation Trouble (Ubuntu)


I'm trying to get scratchbox set up so I can do some cross compiling, and have been having some trouble. Following the instructions here: … Scratchbox

On Ubuntu 8.04 and 10 machines, I run into the following:

$ sudo apt-get install scratchbox-devkit-cputransp
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package scratchbox-devkit-cputransp

I found a blog entry discussing what appears to be a similar problem here: … on-ubuntu/

But even changing the sources line to be:
deb apophis main

The problem persists. Is there an up-to-date description of how to get this stuff up and running on Ubuntu 8 or 10 machines? Or does anyone have a workaround?

Re: Scratchbox Installation Trouble (Ubuntu)

I'm using Scratchbox 2 on 10.04 and have instructions for that if you're interested.

Absolutely! That would be wonderful.

On this thread ( I worked through the same issues you had and I hope it helps.

Can you share your instructions or details using scratchbox2 to compile pygame?  How is this done?
