13.10.2 Packaging with tools

Use dh_make from the dh-make package to create a baseline package. Then, proceed according to instructions in dh-make(1). This uses debhelper in debian/rules.

An older approach is to use deb-make from the debmake package. This uses no debhelper scripts and depends only on the shell. Do not use this any more.

For examples of multiple-source packages, see "mc" (dpkg-source -x mc_4.5.54.dsc), which uses "" by Adam Heath ( [email protected]), and "glibc" (dpkg-source -x glibc_2.2.4-1.dsc), which uses another system by the late Joel Klecker ([email protected]).
