HOWTO Build current XAMS Debian packages

This article was first written in September 2004 for the BeezNest technical
website (http://glasnost.beeznest.org/articles/168).

For the moment, no official XAMS binary package exist. You have then to play a bit with the Subversion repository.

So, update or export your xams-0.0.x and xams-0.0.x-debian repositories.

Done? Ok, let’s continue then.

Copy your xams-0.0.x directory to another name, like xams-0.0.15+svn20040908 for example:

$ cp -ar xams-0.0.x/ xams-0.0.15+svn20040908/

Then, copy the debian subdirectory from your xams-0.0.x-debian directory to your newly-created one (xams-0.0.15+svn20040908


$ cp -ar xams-0.0.x-debian/debian/ xams-0.0.15+svn20040908/

Copy then the autogen.conf preconfigured for Debian.

$ cp xams-0.0.x-debian/autogen.conf xams-0.0.15+svn20040908/

Install the latest build-dependencies (see list in the debian/control file).

Enter the newly-created directory and modify the version number of the last entry of debian/changelog as well as the maintainer’s line. Issue a debuild in the directory.

$ cd xams-0.0.15+svn20040908/
$ vi debian/changelog
$ debuild

It should build without problems.
