hello package - useful for understanding low-layer

  • onyl 3 files needed: changelog, control, rules
  • rules is executable

-- rules we look at: build, binary (binary-arch), clean build process: build stage (create programs), binary stage (make the binary package) The last step is dpkg --build, which creates the .deb -we should cover basic use of Makefiles (make, make install) and configure/autoconf -- sample package -- talk about DESTDIR and why important -example, run "debian/rules build"


  • builds source package, then binary package, etc
  • runs clean target
