Default SUCCESS! Could a Lenny upgrade break GnuCash 2.2.6-2?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I got the two packages compiled, added them to the local packages
repository and installed them using kpackage, the KDE package manager.
I then successfully opened gnucash, selected in preferences to run any
past due scheduled transactions when the data file is opened, made a
couple of transactions, saved the data file, closed it and opened it
again. Nothing untoward happened (yet?). Thanks for your help; I could
not have compiled these packages without it.

My comments on the final steps in your instructions, and final questions
follow.

>> The changelog is more than information; it is critical for debuild processing.
>> Add something similar to the following at the top (the syntax is very fussy)
>> gnucash (2.2.9-0) stable; urgency=high
>> * 2.2.6 segfaults with libglib from lenny-backports

I added the above three lines to the changelog file as you had them.
However when debuild -us -uc was running I noticed flashing by on the
monitor a text to the effect that debuild did not like the format. In
any event the changelog file did not end up in either package.

>> Edit the control file and edit the two Replaces lines so they read:
>> Replaces: gnucash-common (<< 2.2.6-3)
>> Replaces: gnucash (<< 2.2.6-3)

Used 2.2.6-2 instead, because this version is the one in lenny. Version
2.2.6-3 is in Sid.

>> Edit the files file so it reads:
>> gnucash-common_2.2.9-0_all.deb gnome optional
>> gnucash_2.2.9-0_amd64.deb gnome optional

Created the files file with only these two lines as you had them, except
replaced amd64 with i386.

>> debuild will complain about the -0 but I do not want to give it -1 in case the real 2.2.9 package is -1 when it is released.

I did not notice whether debuild complained about the -0. As for 2.2.9,
squeeze has 2.2.9-6.

Further questions.

1. Is it now safe do delete directory /download/gnucash?

2. To your knowledge have other Debian Lenny users found gnucash 2.2.6
broken because of the upgrade to libglib2.2.0 from lenny-backports
because iceweasel 3.5.10 and acroread I think need it? I ask because I
wonder whether the two packages, gnucash_2.2.9-0_i386.deb and
gnucash-common_2.2.9-0_all.deb which I compiled would be useful to
others. If not, would it be useful to make available off list your
instructions with my updates as an odt or pdf file? I would be willing
to create such a file, run it by you, and then tell the list that the
compilation instructions are available from me to those who ask me for
it off list.

I'm glad it worked. Alas, I'm dashing out right now so don't have time
to digest your questions but please feel free to share the revised
instructions - the beauty of an open source world - John
