Re: Re: howto for compiling of deb packages

Quick Method....Will not work for all...

apt-get install debhelper debmake fakeroot dh-make devscripts
1)   Unpack the source
2)   Ensure the directory name has a version number
3)   Enter the directory
4)   Type "deb-make"
5)   Type "debuild"
6)   If the above fails, read the docs on deb-make, debuild, debhelper...

Just use dpkg-buildpackage

apt-get source <whatever package you want>
cd <directory of package>
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage

and you'll get debs in the parent directory
it will barf that it needs some packages instealled first..

That's it (or at least should be unless the source it broken)
