I wanted to have a go at packaging a Qt app into a deb file to submit to the ubuntu software center so I made a small helloworld applicationa and followed the steps on this page.I get a problem when I execute the command
sudo pbuilder create
the error that i get is:
wks@linuxmint ~ $ sudo pbuilder create
I: Distribution is oneiric.
I: Building the build environment
I: running debootstrap /usr/sbin/debootstrap
I: Retrieving Release
E: Failed getting release file http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/oneiric/Release
E: debootstrap failed
W: Aborting with an error
I: cleaning the build env
I: removing directory /var/cache/pbuilder/build//7393 and its subdirectories
The guide does not explain what to do in case of such an error nor what might cause it. I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to go about this.
Note: The guide is for Ubuntu but I am working with LinuxMint. I hope that's not a problem since LinuxMint is based off of Ubuntu.
