Title: make_package.sh
Post by: coley on November 18, 2011, 03:40:50 pm
My 8.10 setup imploded after the pollution of the sources.list and hasty upgrade!
So I've made the move to 10.04 and am gradually getting back to where I was.

I tried running make_package.sh in one of the packages in the src tree and I'm getting two errors:
"_Package_template" is missing so a cp command fails.
and "propagate.pl" is also missing so this also fails.

I've searched under my src tree and cannot find either - what am I missing?

thanks,
-Coley.

what do you use make_package for?
/me uses test-pkg.sh to make single packages after running a full built once.

Thanks possy.
Given the name of the script and its location I assumed it would do as it said :)
I will give test-pkg.sh a shot later.

This assumes having a builder env set up.
Is the 10.04 builder setup a lot different to 8.10? or does it follow more or less the wiki for 8.10

follow the 810 and replace everything that you find containing the word intrepid with lucid, and 810 with 1004 ;)

in short, make_package.sh is a vestigial script, no longer used for anything.
