I am attempting to get through the "packaging new software" section (http://developer.ubuntu.com/packagin...-software.html) of ubuntu's packaging guide. I have hit a roadblock and am hoping that somebody can point me in the right direction.
When I get to the point were it asks me to insert the code:
I get this message in the terminal:
$ bzr builddeb -- -us -uc
I am assuming that this means I am missing a makefile so it is not able to get past that. I just dont understand why I am missing a makefile or where to get it.
make: Entering directory `/home/morgan/build-area/hello-2.9'
There seems to be no Makefile in this directory.
You must run ./configure before running 'make'.
make: *** [abort-due-to-no-makefile] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/morgan/build-area/hello-2.9'
dh_auto_clean: make -j1 distclean returned exit code 2
make: *** [clean] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules clean gave error exit status 2
debuild: fatal error at line 1361:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -D -us -uc failed
bzr: ERROR: The build failed.
To get to this point I have followed the "GETTING SET UP" article (http://developer.ubuntu.com/packagin...ng-set-up.html) and the "PACKAGING NEW SOFTWARE" article (http://developer.ubuntu.com/packagin...-software.html) point by point.
