-t ipk packaging target

IPK is Listallers cross-distribution packaging format.

  • The -t ipk target will build them, similarly to deb/rpms.

  • This fpm frontend however will just generate static packages.

  • Proper relocatability would require building application binaries with specific Listaller tools (relaytool, ligcc).


Use --deb-sign - to have your main GPG key used for package signing.

The flag --ipk-relocatable does almost nothing yet.


  • Note that Limba is currently planned as successor to Listaller/AutoPackage.

  • This fpm target uses lipkgen instead of manual package building. (Thus might work for Limba as-is.)

  • IPK-1.0 packages are comparable in structure to DEB packages. The control section is vastly different, and data.txz contains compacted directory trees. Still should be feasible to craft manually.
