Re: [Pkg-grass-general] Re: DebianGis: Packaging postgis/geos
Sorry about the libgeos2 rename. I messed up according to policy and had
to change it.
To get the package to build I also had to make a few scripts executable:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 steve steve 730 Nov 14 17:57 mkinstalldirs
-rwxr-xr-x 1 steve steve 8.7K Nov 14 17:57 postgis_build
-rwxr-xr-x 1 steve steve 870 Nov 14 17:57 postgis_clean
-rwxr-xr-x 1 steve steve 1.5K Nov 14 17:57 postgis_install
The built package though doesn't contain the libraries:
# dpkg -L postgis
It looks like they got built in the main postgis-0.9.0 directory, but
were never installed to postgis-0.9.0/debian/postgis
The problem seems to be this line of debian/postgis_install:
If I comment that out things get installed ok. I haven't had time to
check if it actually works or conforms to policy though. I think you may
have missed the above problems by building the package as root? I build
as a regular user with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot. I don't know if the
maintainer guide suggests this only since it can be done by a user
without root access or if there are other reasons.
Is there a way to get the output of postgis_build etc. to the console?
It could come in helpful later if autobuilding fails on an architecture
you don't have access to.
Thanks for your work.
