For the brave folks out there interested in Xapian and running it in
Ubuntu, I’ve built packages of Xapian 0.9.2 on Breezy. They might
work somewhere else than Breezy. If they work at all, that is. Add the
following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://awkly.org/files/xapian binary/ deb-src http://awkly.org/files/xapian source/
apt-get install python2.3-xapian libxapian8
Note those packages are experimental. I’m no packaging pro, so I
just took the existing 0.8.5 source packages, ran uupdate and
tweaked away until the build succeeded. The packages seem to work for
me so far. YMMV.

Thanks for preparing these, but you’d probably be better off starting from Richard’s 0.9.2 debian packages than his 0.8.5 ones.
For example, your packages seem to omit the new header /usr/include/xapian/dbfactory.h.
You can find his latest packaging here: http://svn.xapian.org/trunk/xapian-core/debian/
thanks for pointing out!
I didn’t knew about that url, will try again!
Thanks for this, but…
is there any chance of a py2.4 package please?
