.deb package for a library generation
I need to generate a Debian package for a library
As an exercise I tried it with libvirt .
I am running a Ubuntu 8.10 . and use the libvirt.0.6.1 tar.gz
For the library package I followed the Ubuntu instructions at :
(I first generated a .deb for the hello program and it went ok)
For the library I did :
1. got the tar of libvirt . made a copy to orig.tar.gz
2. untarred the tared library . cd to the untarred code
3. there ran : dh_make -e your.maintainer@address . This created the
debian directory. Got no bad
commnets from lintian.
4. ran : debuild -S -us -uc (to avoid gpg for now)
That generated the ../*.dsc and ../*.diff.gz . Looks ok.
5. ran: sudo pbuilder build ../*.dsc ( changed the debian/rules to have
./configure --with-xen=no otherwise
it complained about xs_read missing in libxenstore - which exists .
libxen3, libxen3-deb are installed ok)
But now during the ./confugre run I get the following message :
checking for pkg-config... no
checking libxml2 xml2-config >= 2.5.0 ... configure: error: Could not find
libxml2 anywhere (see config.log for details).
make: *** [config.status] Error 1
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2
pbuilder: Failed autobuilding of package
-> Aborting with an error
-> unmounting dev/pts filesystem
-> unmounting proc filesystem
-> cleaning the build env
pkg-config is installed and the newest . libxml2 is installed and newest
(/usr/lib/) and xml2-config --version gives 2.6.32
so why does the system complain : Could not find libxml2 anywhere . BTW:
config.log was not generated yet .
Any idea/ help ?
