debian at work, how to make packages
I have been using debian for more than 4 years now and I have
finaly talked my boss into trying debian instead of redhat
for our servers, that we install in hotels all over europe.
I have been reading most of the dokumentation on making .deb
pakages, but most of it is how to package foreign source that
anyone should be able to recompile.
Our buildtree is totally incompatible with this, so I have been
looking for a few simple scripts to package the bin and conf
files to make a usable deb package.
I read somewhere that I could unpack a deb my using
"ar x package.deb", and the format looks reasonably simple
with the 3 files, where data.tar.gz should be untared in /
and the control files and scripts are in control.tar.gz
Does any of you have some suggestions ?
