I'm currently trying to install PCP on Debian with sparc64. Unfortunately it requires the package
libreadline6 (>= 6.0) which doesn't have an apt package for sparc64. libreadline7 does and is installed.
My solution was building gnu readline v6.3 from source (which worked), however I'm unsure how to proceed from here. Installing PCP via apt again lists the missing libreadline6 dependency. Is there another solution to this, other than building PCP completely from source as well?
dpkg-deb --build... Have a look here if you think this method could help you: linuxconfig.org/… ... I am not really an advanced linux user, so, feel free to ask me delete my comment. Just thought to share the idea but risked to be a stupid idea (even if I still feel it can be done with the inner method that dpkg is looking for the installed packages)
