Follow up from ticket:1202#comment:26, it would be nice if Debian and Ubuntu servers had correct DPI settings in all cases.
work in progress - builds on stretch and yakkety, without any patches
The beta area has dummy packages for Debian Stretch, Ubuntu Xenial and Ubuntu Yakkety.
Packaging had issues, see #1384
Just noticed that Debian Wheezy and Jessie have DPI issues with the 1.0 branch because of this ticket: the dummy driver fails to build on those older distros. Specifically since this commit: r15013. (r15014 for v1.0.x branch: 1.0.2)
To build on Debian Wheezy and Jessie, we need to workaround this build error:
/xserver-xorg-video-dummy/missing: line 81: automake-1.15: command not found
None of the easy / hackish workarounds applied, so I resorted to installing automake-1.15 from source using this script then symlinked it into
/usr/bin so the build finds it:
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/automake-1.15 /usr/bin/
This can all be removed after we've built the dummy packages.
