Debian package article help?
« on: April 29, 2012, 09:40:54 »
Hello.

Could anyone tell me if the info on this page here is still relevant?

http://odamex.net/wiki/Debian_package

I've gotten to the part where I'm supposed to download the skeleton package, but I'm getting a no file exists message.

Code: [Select]
~/Downloads # wget -c http://nuxified.org/odamex/odamex-0.5.6/skel.tar.gz

It seems that the skel.tar.gz either moved or was discontinued.  I think this was a third party package put together by a member of the Odamex community as I am unfamiliar with it.

Are you looking to just compile Odamex or are you looking to build a .deb package?

I'd prefer my package managers to handle programs if possible. I could quite possibly forget what programs are manually installed, so I'd prefer those files not cluttering up my OS.

BTW - Is the cmake option not available for the last stable 0.5.6?
