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>

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