I am trying to publish my cmake built project to my launchpad ppa. While I am doing fake build below is the error being thrown.
gowtham@ubuntu:~/Packages/build-area$ pbuilder-dist xenial build base_1.1-0ubuntu1.dsc ... ... dh_auto_configure -O--buildsystem=cmake mkdir -p obj-x86_64-linux-gnu cd obj-x86_64-linux-gnu cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=ON -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=None -DCMAKE_INSTALL_SYSCONFDIR=/etc -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LOCALSTATEDIR=/var dh_auto_configure: cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=ON -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=None -DCMAKE_INSTALL_SYSCONFDIR=/etc -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LOCALSTATEDIR=/var failed to to execute: No such file or directory cd /build/base-1.1 debian/rules:11: recipe for target 'build' failed make: *** [build] Error 2 dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2 ... ...
The error message doesn't say what file is missing. my project doesn't have a
configure file to do
my debian/rules file
#!/usr/bin/make -f # -*- makefile -*- # Uncomment this to turn on verbose mode. #export DH_VERBOSE=1 override_dh_auto_test: override_dh_usrlocal: %: dh $@ --buildsystem=cmake
I was able to successfully publish my library with my hand written Makefile. But I am having troubles when I opted cmake. Unfortunately I didn't find any beginner friendly guide for packaging a cmake built project.
my normal build procedure:
cd ~/Packages/base mkdir build cd build cmake .. make sudo make install
Instructions I am following to package and publish to my ppa
cd ~/Packages/base bzr dh-make base 1.1 base-1.1.tar.gz cd base/debian/ rm *ex *EX bzr commit -m "Initial commit of Debian packaging." bzr builddeb -- -us -uc -sd bzr builddeb -S -- -sd bzr tag release-1.1 cd ../../build-area pbuilder-dist xenial build base_1.1-0ubuntu1.dsc cd ../base bzr push lp:~satyagowtham-k-gmail/+junk/base-package cd ../build-area dput ppa:satyagowtham-k-gmail/ferryfair.ppa base_1.1-0ubuntu1_source.changes
