Debian package

From OdaWiki

This is how to build the Debian/Ubuntu package


  • Install all of the debian packaging utilities and the build environment utilities. Also make sure you have libsdl-dev,libsdl-mixer1.2-dev and wxgtk installed- sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev file gcc g++ libc6-dev
  • make patch perl autoconf automake dh-make debhelper devscripts gnupg
  • Create a folder titled 'odamex-<version>'. Example: mkdir odamex-0.3
  • Grab a source tarball from and place it in the same place as the directory 'odamex-<version>'
  • cd into the directory 'odamex-<version>'
  • run dh_make -e -f ../<name of the tarball you downloaded>
  • remove the newly created debian/ and extract the skeleton into the directory
  • if the source code is not already in the directory with debian/, extract the tarball you downloaded inside the directory.
  • run 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot' in the same directory with debian/
  • you should have a .deb package up one directory if everything checked out right
  • to rebuild without recompiling, run 'fakeroot debian/rules binary'
