Building the Debian Package: First Time

Now you are ready to build and check the new package:

  $ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
This will ask for your GPG key secret pass phrase, twice. Did I tell you that you needed to create this first? See Section 
[*].

The appropriate package files are placed into the parent directory and are: wajig_2.0.20-1_i386.changes, wajig_2.0.20-1.dsc, wajig_2.0.20-1_all.deb, and wajig_2.0.20-1.diff.gz

Now check it all looks okay.

  $ cd .. 
  $ lintian -i wajig_2.0.20-1_i386.changes
  $ linda -i wajig_2.0.20-1_i386.changes

Typical “errors” can be fixed by removing the debian/README.Debian file if you have not changed it and leaving the “*.ex” files in the debian directory (remove them). There are often suggestions as to how to fix the errors.
