command-line only e-book conversion

Hello,

I have quite a specific question.

I would like to install Calibre on my server to do automatic conversion of recipe files to amazon mobi (something like http://readbeam.com from this thread - http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=115879 )

the bad thing is - the server is on debian stable, and I don't want to change it

I can't install the whole calibre, because it depends on too many libraries that are not in stable and can't be easily installed. Well, why not be specific - I can't install podofo library, it depends on newer libstdc++ and I don't want to install unstable libstdc++

However, I don't want to convert from or to PDF, so I don't "need" podofo.

so, my question is, can I install only ebook-convert, and only the part that converts .recipe to .mobi?

(I suspect I most probably can't, but I have to ask here )

No. You're also going to run into issus with Debian stable because ebook-convert requires you to have Qt installed.
