Re: Need help with .deb packaging...
But there's a "Debian Recommended Way" to fix using the files in the /debian folder or I must change the makefile manually?

I'm trying to create a .deb package from a tarball.
After following a guide in Debian's website on how to create a package,
I ended up with an error in "debuild -us -uc" that I don't even know how
to debug it to solve.
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 installCron.pl /root/bullshit/pinger-2.0.2/debian/pinger/usr/share/pinger/installCron.pl
make: Entering directory `/root/bullshit/pinger-2.0.2/sw'
chmod ugo+x /usr/share/pinger/installCron.pl
chmod: cannot access `/usr/share/pinger/installCron.pl': No such file or directory
There's a bug in the upstream Makefile. It has a chmod command to make
the installed script executable that doesn't honor DESTDIR. Changing the
upstream Makefile to put $(DESTDIR) in front of
/usr/share/pinger/installCron.pl is probably the right fix.
