Creating a debian package that doesn't need compiling...
This is my first go at creating a debian package, so please excuse
any mistakes that I have made/might make!
I am trying to create a debian package for RCF (a firewall for
linux). There is currently a tarball and RPM of the firewall, but not
a debian package, so I thought I might try and make one!
The main file (rc.firewall) is placed into /etc/rc.d/, and the config
file in /etc. There are also some .tar files that are contained in
the rcf tarball that are uncompressed and put into directories within
I have read the maintainer's guide that is at the Debian
Documentation Project, but it seems to only cover packages that
require compiling - which RCF doesn't.
After running dh_make and cd'ing to the debian directory, is there a
file that allows you to tell dpkg (or whatever is handling the
package) to put certain files into certain places, and/or do certain
things? I've looked at the debian/rules files, but that refers to
compiling from source, and I don't need that!
Any help/hints would be greatly appreciated!
