Appendix A - Examples


Here we package the upstream tarball gentoo-1.0.2.tar.gz and uploading all the packages to the nm_target.


A.1 Simple packaging example

     $ mkdir -p /path/to # new empty directory
     $ cd /path/to
     $ tar -xvzf /path/from/gentoo-1.0.2.tar.gz # get source
     $ cd gentoo-1.0.2
     $ dh_make -e [email protected] -f /path/from/gentoo-1.0.2.tar.gz
     ... Answer prompts.
     ... Fix source tree
     ... If it is a script package, set debian/control to "Architecture: all"
     ... Do not erase ../gentoo_1.0.2.orig.tar.gz
     $ debuild
     ... Make sure no warning happens.
     $ cd ..
     $ dupload -t nm_target gentoo_1.0.2-1_i386.changes

A.2 Packaging example with the dpatch and the pbuilder

     $ mkdir -p /path/to # new empty directory
     $ cd /path/to
     $ tar -xvzf /path/from/gentoo-1.0.2.tar.gz
     $ cp -a  gentoo-1.0.2 gentoo-1.0.2-orig
     $ cd gentoo-1.0.2
     $ dh_make -e [email protected] -f /path/from/gentoo-1.0.2.tar.gz
     ... Answer prompts.

Here part of debian/rules originally looks like:

     configure: configure-stamp
     configure-stamp:
             dh_testdir
             # Add here commands to configure the package.
             touch configure-stamp
     build: build-stamp
     build-stamp: configure-stamp 
             dh_testdir
             # Add here commands to compile the package.
             $(MAKE)
             #docbook-to-man debian/gentoo.sgml > gentoo.1
             touch [email protected]
     clean:
             dh_testdir
             dh_testroot
             rm -f build-stamp configure-stamp
             # Add here commands to clean up after the build process.
             -$(MAKE) clean
             dh_clean

You change this part of debian/rules to the following by the editor to use dpatch and add dpatch to the Build-Depends: line in the debian/control file:

     configure: configure-stamp
     configure-stamp: patch
             dh_testdir
             # Add here commands to configure the package.
             touch configure-stamp
     build: build-stamp
     build-stamp: configure-stamp 
             dh_testdir
             # Add here commands to compile the package.
             $(MAKE)
             #docbook-to-man debian/gentoo.sgml > gentoo.1
             touch [email protected]
     clean: clean-patched unpatch
     clean-patched:
             dh_testdir
             dh_testroot
             rm -f build-stamp configure-stamp
             # Add here commands to clean up after the build process.
             -$(MAKE) clean
             dh_clean 
     patch: patch-stamp
     patch-stamp:
          dpatch apply-all
          dpatch call-all -a=pkg-info >patch-stamp
     unpatch:
          dpatch deapply-all
          rm -rf patch-stamp debian/patched

Now you are ready to repackage the source tree with dpatch system with the help of dpatch-edit-patch.

     $ dpatch-edit-patch patch 10_firstpatch
     ... Fix source tree by editor
     $ exit 0
     ... Try building packages with "debuild -us -uc"
     ... Clean source with "debuild clean"
     ... Repeat dpatch-edit-patch until making source buildable.
     $ sudo pbuilder update
     $ pdebuild
     $ cd /var/cache/pbuilder/result/
     $ dupload -t nm_target gentoo_1.0.2-1_i386.changes
