Has anyone managed to produce a Debian package? Lloyd appears to maintain something for PCs, but there is no ARM .deb file.

Re: can you run two different networks on the pi?

Hi,

Two network interfaces with two different IP addresses should work. You might consider making one of them a NATed network and the other a public network. With Linux you can run multiple IP addresses on the same network interface. NATing can be achieved using iptables.

Best regards,

Some packages do not have Makefiles and rely on autoconf to generate them. In this case, there will be a configure file present.
