Re: What's happening to my dpkg-source?

Sorry for the quote, but most people won't remember my old post likely.

I've found out this is a bug in dpkg-source, at least with the "patch" I

'.dpkg-orig' is the suffix to give to original files; it must IMEDIATTLY
follow '-b'. As it is, it tries to give a '-z' suffix to original files and
open a file named ".dpkg-orig" for patching.

I will try with the "patch" in hamm. If it doesn't work (what I believe it
won't), I will report a bug.

               I walk the maze of moments...
