Re: Packaging Compiz


Now it seems better. Lintian only displays small issues, likely due to my build environment. My only hope is that I install proper files at the proper place, such as .la files.

Waiting for any feedback,

PS: I am thinking of metacity too, so that I determine if it's as slight as Emerald and if it results the same layout. I think the test will be more calm once packaged in Jessie. I prefer a useless package than a useful missing package due to freeze.

Is it absolutely important as we are on a little package? lintian seems to
say it's possible in such case.
Did you read the policy to check what are the precise rules?  It says

“there are some exceptions for unusual shared libraries or for shared
libraries that are also loaded as dynamic modules by other programs.”

libwnckmm doesn't seen an "unusual shared library" to me, and it's not
dynamic modules.  So yes, it should really ship two packages.

Otherwise, only create a debian/control entry is enough
No. dh can't divine which files will have to go where.

or I need to create install.foo files to say where go each
file? If I need install files, how can I determine what go where?
Again, see how it is done in libwnck for instance.
