Create debian package from source file with multiple binarie

Postby Lucy789 » 2018-12-29 05:46

I have a C/C++ am autoconf source package for Linux that consist of several binaries, logical in development as many of them share the same source. Some binaries run in a graphical environment, some are server components, some drivers for the server, libs and others are shell commands. I would like to make a proper debian package for this system (I already have a working checkinstall based install).

If I follow the Debian tutorials I can make a package for for all binaries in one. But how do I do if I want to make a package that just install one binary component? In my case installing graphical stuff separate from non-graphical stuff.

As it looks from the tutorials I need to make a separate source package for each package I want to maintain but that sounds stupid and I must have missed something.

Any help or pointers are welcome.

Use quilt to modify the autoconf, perhaps? ... fy.en.html
