dpkg problems? + one volunteer needed
I have nearly finished debianising the tripwire package.
However, I have still some minor problems:
1. although I specified 'tripwire' (in lowercase) as package name in the
debian.control file, after installation I get the package name
bash# dpkg -l | more
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Rev Description
ii Tripwire 1.2 0 Tripwire: a file and directory integrity checke
ii a2gs 1.0 4 ASCII to PostScript filter
all other package names are lower case only.
2. Also, dpkg complains about a missing file 'configure', although the
packaging guidelines do not mention any such file. dpkg
also doesn't wait for me to press <enter>. Part of the output
with debugging on:
Setting up Tripwire ...

Note: the tripwire binary, configuration file and database
directory are located conforming to the file system standards in
/usr/bin, /etc and /var/lib. However, it is strongly advised that
these are stored on write-protected media (e.g. mounted RO floppy).
See /usr/doc/tripwire/README for details.
You will probably want to finetune /etc/tripwire.config
Can't open configure: No such file or directory
Press <return> to continue:
Am I missing something here? I use dpkg version 1.0.6.
Finally, as soon as these problems are solved, I would like to ask for
one volunteer to test this package before I release it in public.
This is the first package that I debianise, and I might have
overlooked a few things.
