deb pkg tst
testing, this is my 3rd ppa trial & 6th packaging learn trial.
NO ALGERIAN DEBIAN or UBUNTU Offical developer or maintainer??? we are really late, after years of civil war. :/
To be honest, I was always avoiding to read long English references & manuals, most are not guides, Ideas should be modelled & structured in mind and English is not my mother language. Arabic guides!!! may be for next generation.
=== autotools/c or c++ (wget) ===
difficult to learn something alone and it is changing like real time. also multiple ways to do it, but most tutorials don't mention that till i see new tutorial from debian released in 2011/10???.
methods: debhelper, CDBS, dh (i will choose dh the newest one)
So now this could light my way. :)
most tutorial starts from manual packaging as the simplest way to learn packaging and they stop there as its the all story. which is in my mind, loose of time & make readers bored. Instead of make nice overview first with a packaging helper, then move down.
package??? (most mean binary one, but some times both and in rare places upstream source archive)
also a broken chain in most tutorials, how to create source package from upstream source, and exactly how to get _source.changes file.
:) finally, I could upload but rejected
another boring thing is uploading a source package for each dist release some times for same source, but not a big deal.
:), whatever, upload accepted, build failed.
problem, with wget/make clean which which exit with error, if no ./configure already run, so override dh_auto_clean and add dh_auto_configure to it.
ElHamdu LiALLAH, :) it works.
=== setup.py/python ===
methods: dh_python2 (python_support & python_central both deprecated)
also new, not available for lucid, whatever
