Hello Matt

If you have a working package, please show me the thing, and let me test it.
If it works, I will tell you so, and you can take over it, otherwise, please
leave it to me. I am in contact with the team in ##freebasic (on freenode),
and they are doing the changes required so the software easily (without
changes to upstream) can go into Debian.

Yours,
Gürkan

It's still being packaged, well it's not too easy. Do you think you can help? If 
so please go ahead. Otherwise I don't have other news.

It has been already packaged for Getdeb:
http://www.getdeb.net/release/4496
http://www.getdeb.net/release/4060

There are linkds to the sources and diffs.

This may be helpful, although the GetDeb quality is not too high, Intrepid version does not work on Jaunty and vice versa without any warning about missing dependencies etc.

Subject: freebasic installation
Date: Sat, 13 Feb 2010 11:46:02 -0800 (PST)
Hello,

I have installed recently the FreeBASIC compiler for Linux, Standalone version, in Debian Lenny.
It compiles without problem programs using BASIC graphic statements (SCREEN, LINE, DRAW...).

To get it working I had to download some libraries and to create some links:

1. Libraries (packages):

		libpthread-stubs0 (0.1-2)
		libpthread-stubs0-dev (0.1-2)
		libx11-dev (2:1.1.5-2)
		libxau-dev (1:1.0.3-3)
		libxcb-xlib0-dev (1.1-1.2)
		libxcb1-dev (1.1-1.2)
		libxdmcp-dev (1:1.0.2-3)
		x11proto-core-dev (7.0.12-1)
		x11proto-input-dev (1.4.3-2)
		x11proto-kb-dev (1.0.3-3)
		xtrans-dev (1.2-2)
		libc6-dev (2.7-18lenny2)
		binutils (2.18.1~cvs20080103-7)
		gcc (4:4.3.2-2)
		gcc-4.3 (4.3.2-1.1)
		libgomp1 (4.3.2-1.1)
		libncurses5-dev (5.7+20081213-1)
		libpth-dev (2.0.7-12)
		linux-libc-dev (2.6.26-19lenny2)
2. Links:
		/lib/libm.so
		/lib/libdl.so
		/usr/lib/libXext.so
		/usr/lib/libXpm.so
		/usr/lib/libXrandr.so
		/usr/lib/libXrender.so

These links are copies of other links that can be found in those directories and have slighty different names. E.g.,
 
libXext.so is a copy of libXext.so.6
(both are links to	libXext.so.6.0)
-------------
It took me a while to get it working. Hope this message will spare other people's time.

Yours,

Manuel Sanz Ledesma

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of freebasic back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting freebasic, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 412060 ITP: freebasic -- 32-bit BASIC compiler with MS-QuickBasic compatibilty
 owner 412060 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <412060@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>

Should anyone be interested in this, it'll probably be much easier and
make more sense to package qb64 instead of freebasic:
