Apt, custom packages, and package dependencies
Hello developers, I'm a n00b.
I've got my own little http debian package repository. It shows up with apt
In this repository I've got a custom package that I'm working on that depends
on a bunch of ldap stuff, and contains configuration files and installation
scripts to install and configure ldap for me.
In this package's control file are the following lines:
Depends: slapd ldap-utils libnss-ldap libpam-ldap
Pre-Depends: slapd ldap-utils libnss-ldap libpam-ldap
My problem is, according to dselect, there are no dependencies or
pre-dependencies listed, and apt won't try to install any of the depencies
before installing my package.
Other custom packages that I have built have their dependencies listed in
dselect, but not this one. And I have both completely erased and rebuilt my
repository on the server and run "apt update" on the client several times.
I figure the problem is in one of two places. Either:
a) There's a cache file somewhere that apt isn't updating when I type "apt
b) There's a file that needs to be updated on my repository -- even though
I've totally deleted and rebuilt the repository several times.
Anybody have any idea where I would go about finding out what's wrong?
Thanks for your help,
