Re: Help, the template debian/rules is too simple

I admit what I'm doing is a little beyond my current skill, after all, I'm just a user of Debian not a developer. But I think it is better using apt/dpkg to manage the software/tools I need in my research than just using "./configure && make && make install". I prefer to use the ready-made packages if there is any. I googled, but unfortunately I can't find any.

I find a way to solve the this issue by answering 'b' to the question asked by dh_make, that is using cdbs, then setting the variables

I am not sure weather this is the right way or the best way, but at least it works.

Thanks anyway!

I have not used dh_make under squeeze recently ...  but I know lenny one
now comes with option to create package with cdbs.  This cdbs is not
covered by NM guide.

You should have answered differently to the question.

$ man dh_make

I guess, if you have not created normal package, you are doing something
beyond your current skill.  You need to lean step by step.
