Are you having trouble building the touch screen driver for debian? If
so I know how you would generate a debian package from a source rpm.
The software I use is Pluto Home, which is a home automation software.
The thing is that I have a Dell touch screen which I use with my xp
media center edition. Now I want to give it a try with Pluto but I
don’t have the drive for debian. I ask the developers of the touch
controller and this is what they said:
/We do offer a driver for some versions of the Linux operating system
and kernel and the driver for those versions can be downloaded from
our website. We do not offer a driver for Debian but we do have a
source and object kit that will allow users to build our package
against their version of Linux. With every new version it is possible
to hit a situation where the kernel module will not build or will not
load on a target system. When this occurs, the customer is responsible
for finding the issues that prevent the driver from building as we do
not have the resources to investigate and troubleshoot the many
variations of Linux and kernels. Here is a link to the drivers
download page, click the drop down for Linux drivers and then download
the source and object kit.//
So I would like to know how do I build a package for my Pluto, Debian
I hope you can help me or at least let me know who can.
Thanks a lot!

1) Install 'rpm', 'alien' and 'fakeroot' by running 'apt-get install rpm
alien fakeroot' as root.
2) Download the source rpm (src.rpm) and build it by running the command
'fakeroot rpmbuild --rebuild <file>.src.rpm'.
3) Look for the binary rpm in directory /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386/. It will
have the name <file>.rpm (same "basename" as source rpm)
4) Generate a debian package by running 'fakeroot alien <file>.rpm' in
the /usr/src/rpm/RPM/i386/ directory.
You can then install the debian package by running 'dpkg -i <file>.deb'.
If you get stuck, I might be able to help a little so don't hesitate to
e-mail. Good luck!
Para generar un paquete debian de un "source rpm" (src.rpm):
1) Instala 'rpm', 'alien', y 'fakeroot' ejecutando 'apt-get install rpm
alien fakeroot' (siendo root)
2) Baja el "source.rpm" y ejecuta 'fakeroot rpmbuild --rebuild
<archivo>.src.rpm' para crear un "rpm binary" en /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386/
3) Cambia al directorio /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386 ('cd ...')
4) Ejecuta 'fakeroot alien <archivo>.rpm' para crear el paquete debian.
Así puedes tener un paquete debian que puedes instalar en tu sistema con
el mandato: 'dpkg -i <archivo>.deb'.
Si tienes alguna pregunta quizá te puedo ayudar un poco mas. No vaciles
en preguntar :-)
