dpkg-buildpackage and debhelper: removed debian/tmp
I'm not sure whether that's the suitable mailing list, so if theres a
better one I would really appreciate a hint.
I'm trying to build a package using dpkg-buildpackage and debhelper.
rm -f debian/mypackage.substvars
rm -f debian/mypackage.*.debhelper
rm -rf debian/mypackage/
rm -rf debian/tmp
install -d debian/mypackage
install -d debian/mypackage/usr/bin debian/mypackage/var/mypackage/nv
cp -a debian/tmp/bin/mybin debian/mypackage/usr/bin/
cp: cannot stat `debian/tmp/bin/mybin': No such file or directory
It's obvious that dh_install can't find the file in debian/tmp because
dh_prep just removed the dir three steps before. That's somehow strange,
since dh_install will look for files in debian/tmp per default.
Do I miss something? Why does dh_prep remove a dir that dh_install will
use per default?
Any help would be appreciated, thx
