Building the Debian Package: First Time
Now you are ready to build and check the new package:
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
This will ask for your GPG key secret pass phrase, twice. Did I tell
you that you needed to create this first? See Section 85.7.
The appropriate package files are placed into the parent directory and
wajig_2.0.20-1.dsc, wajig_2.0.20-1_all.deb, and
Now check it all looks okay.
$ cd ..
$ lintian -i wajig_2.0.20-1_i386.changes
$ linda -i wajig_2.0.20-1_i386.changes
Typical ``errors'' can be fixed by removing the
debian/README.Debian file if you have not changed it and
leaving the ``*.ex'' files in the debian directory (remove them).
There are often suggestions as to how to fix the errors.
