Ok, I'm once again over my head in Makefile language ...
I'm making a set of Debian CDs for local use only (no selling or
distribution involved). Therefore, I'd like to have all of non-free on
a CD. This ought to be possible, since the debian-cd package has a
non-free script. It also wants you to provide a list of packages from
non-free that are "ok".
If I add all the packages to the list, I get an error:
cp: copying multiple files, but last argument
(hamm/non-free/source/graphics/xwpick_2.20-5.dsc) is not a directory
Try `cp --help' for more information.
Looking at the "Makefile" (actually "Rules.non-free") it does indeed
appear to be an incorrect syntax for xargs.
However, I don't want to peruse a filelist, I want to add all the files
in binary-all, binary-i386, and source dirs. So I steal a rule from
"Rules", and change the target to look like this:
(cd $(ARCHIVE); cp -dpRPl \
./strip_packages.pl $(TMPDIR)/debian/hamm/non-free \
This really freaks out! I get:
Rules.non-free:6: *** missing separator. Stop.
(Line 6 is the line with the cd and cp commands)
Help? What in the heck am I doing wrong?
