Re: hardware detection using libpci


I made a new version of ddetect with a few changes, even if we don't
go the libdetect way it was instructive to figure out how to make
multiple .udebs conviennently.

I'm now generating 2 udebs which each provide the virtual package

We want udebs to be small. Therefore they shouldn't contain anything more
than the bare minimum to accomplish their function. This is against
policy (no manpage, copyright, etc.).  For this example
the .udebs contain very little:
$ dpkg -c snddetect_0.0.5_i386.udeb 
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2000-11-14 20:38:59 ./
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2000-11-14 20:38:58 ./usr/
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2000-11-14 20:38:59 ./usr/bin/
-rwxr-xr-x root/root     26460 2000-11-14 20:38:59 ./usr/bin/snddetect

Documentation, copyrights etc. will be in another udeb.

The .udebs can be found at:
