Debian Package management - Solved

Postby protocoder » 2018-07-05 04:59

Hi Experts

Is there a document where I can automatically update hundreds of packages, open the packages, add and remove binaries, add patch work and build these packages in Ubuntu.

Is there a document which explains me what packages build require what kind of compiler flag setting and automatically find if there are issues from upstream in any of the binaries considered.

Thanks in advance

documents don't update packages.
i suspect you are looking for documentation on how to achieve some task. yes, documentation exists. in abundance.
some of (a lot) on your machine, some on debian wiki, some on the application's wiki, and then there's the wild web with wonderful stackoverflow answers etc.
did you?

You are running Ubuntu, so why don't you post the same question on Ubuntu Forums, as it's asked of you?
Users here don't do the support for Ubuntu, Debian-related or not.
Even if I were to provide you with the documentation, it would be only relevant to Debian.

I can build Ubuntu packages on my Debian-based system using pbuilder...or in the cloud using the openSUSE Build Service. example: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... ts-symbola

A pure Ubuntu user might prefer a PPA instead. I'm still learning how to use pbuilder, but It's pretty simple to add and remove third-party repos to a vanilla Debian pbuild environment to make it a Debian derivative like MX Linux, then revert back to pure Debian, so I assume the same thing would apply to Ubuntu pbuilds if you wanted to convert it to Mint.

I can't think of a way to automatically find all the bugs, unless you're talking about just reported bugs, in which case apt-listbugs could be your answer.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Quod Libet 4.2.0, Pale Moon 28.2.0, wine-staging 3.20, GIMP 2.10.8, Liquorix kernel 4.18-22, Midori 6.0

@Debiman Thank you, I will explore. Thank you.

@stevepusser: Thank you, our work machines are Ubuntu and we work on Debian packages (new).. It is so much time consuming as each package build need different flag setting etc and build issues exploration etc

@Wheelerof4te: Ubuntu is our work machines, we need to work on Debian packages (about 200+ packages) to build and create image.

Thanks all much appreciated.
