At the moment, I am diving into the .deb packaging system. I'm very new to this, so I have a question to you because I couldn't find an accurate answer on other sites.
Assume I'd like to create a (distributable) .deb package for
Software A with
pbuilder. The dependencies are
libABC. For the first to dependencies, there are already packages in the official Ubuntu repositories. So, I only have to add those two libs to the
debian/control file (and
pbuilder does the rest). But for
libABC there's no .deb package in the offical repository and also no PPA etc.
The only thing I have is the source code from GitHub for example.
So, my question is how should I handle this?
- Do I have to compile
libABCfrom source on my system? But how do I "add" it to
- Or do I also have to create another .deb package for
libABCfirst? How could I "add" it to
pbuilder? And what if
libABChas dependencies without existing .deb packages as well?
- Or is it a completely different approach?
Thanks in advance for your help!
