Hi dear friends,

lintian command problems and corresponding .deb file . It's just a daisy player application in python...

Please advise me fast...

my Deb file below as in URL: http://www.4shared.com/file/_EnqaExfce/dbr_10-1_i386.html

Thanks

Many of your errors are because the makefile hardcodes /usr/local as the path instead of just /usr. Also, there are some obvious ones like no copyright file, among other things. Check https://lintian.debian.org/tags-all.html for the tags you're getting, then try to fix them.

If you really want to do it the right way, dump checkinstall and do it the Debian way--create a /debian folder and use the Debian packaging system.
