{May 27, 2007}   Debian multiple binary packages: example 2

Some days ago I wrote a small example of creating multiple binary packages from a source where the program was built and installed with autotools. Now I’ve remade the example, starting from a system built directly using a make script, and which doesn’t provide an install target. Even more, it is supposed to get the data from a directory relative to the working directory. This is, in fact, a scheme often found when packaging games. The debian/rules script uses quilt to apply the necessary patches, so that absolute directories are used for the data file.

I’ve been told to clarify that the software not having install target and looking for files in directories relative to the working one is not because it is a game, but because it’s actually software developed on other operative systems where software is not distributed across the file system.



Miry says:

I’ve made a newer version of the package, with minor corrections:
