debian package problems

Postby tnk » 2006-08-28 09:35

Hello all,

I'm building an package which hasn't been build yet (rsyslog) rsyslog is an mysql based system logger.

Right, the application works fine but the .deb package needs to replace syslogd and klogd and update-rc.d for the init script.

I'm fooling around with 'postrm' 'postinst' and other control files but i simply can't get it all right.

Anybody who has some great knowledge of .deb packages?

Allready digging thru the policy manual and maintainers guide.

Thnx.

I've done some packaging but I don't know how to answer your specific questions. Those subcribed to debian-mentors probably do though. Go to http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/ and subscibe and send them an email. They will also help sponsor your package when it is ready. Good Luck. :)
