Hi Gavin. Can you take a look at 

bug #544256 	(desktop file in wrong place, filed against Fedora 13)
bug #856016 	(include vm-sound-pulse)
bug #861633     (update vm to recent version)

Also note that Jaroslav Škarvada has asked to become a co-maintainer.

Comment 1 Pavel Krivanek 2012-10-01 12:32:46 EDT
Some notes to Škarvada's build squeak-vm- 
1) when I try to open mysqueak, it reports:
  /usr/bin/mysqueak: line 5: exec: inisqueak: not found
2) the overall structure of squeak packages is quite problematic from the perspective of the source files (SqueakV4.sources etc.). Currently the squeak-image package creates source files in /usr/share/squeak and then creates symlinks in the VM directory (/usr/lib64/squeak/4.4.7-2357). This makes -vm and -image package too dependent on each other. You have to have both packages in the right versions (so it makes no real sense to have two packages at all). The -image package should not modify the directory with the virtual machine. Moreover it can lead to problems when the user creates custom image with older image version (let's say 3.9) and then it upgrades the system so the newer version of squeak-image package is installed. In that case the user losts source codes for version 3. 

The ideal solution would be to have third set of packages with only source files that will be placed in /usr/share/squeak. Names of that packages would be squeak-sources4, squeak-sources41, squeak-sources39 etc. The only one package squeak-sources would be possible too but it then would need to contain large set of source files to support images based on older versions. 

The squeak-image package will then be dependent on specific sources package version. AFAIK the squeak image is looking for the sources file in this order:
- current directory
- image directory
- vm directory
This search is done on the Smalltalk side and the VM package cannot modify it. If we do not want to have source files (or symlinks) in the vm directory, the best solution would be to extend inisqueak script to create symlink to the corresponding sources version in /usr/share/squeak next to the image and changes file in the directory where inisqueak/mysqueak was executed.
