Packaging Libgda

Libgda is made of several components and it installs a lot of files. This section gives hints as to how Libgda can be packaged, clearly separating the components so that packagers have a good overview, and can create the packages with a good understanding.

Overview of the components

Libgda's components are:

  • the runtime files (shared libraries and configuration files)

  • the GObject introspection files (to be used by the GObject introspection framework)

  • the tools, which require the runtime component

  • the database providers which are the "drivers" to each database type, which also require the runtime component

  • the development files (the includes to compile C programs)

  • the documentation files

  • the localization files
