    There is: http://women.alioth.debian.org/wiki/...gWithoutHelper


    Or do you mean how to build from the source packages?

    Basically make sure that the deb-src entries are in your repositories and

    sudo apt-get build-dep <package> will install all the build dependancies (what youneed installed to build)

    sudo apt-get source -b <package>

    man apt-get

    Re: Debian Packages

    Thks for your replys,

    I have just make a decision of making ubuntu my linux distro of choice. Yes i have searched in google but just want it to know if i was missing something...


    So my objective is to download the source of a program, let's say for instance Gens (Genesis emulator), solve the dependecies and build a working debian package.

    This way i think i could contribute to the ubuntu community and as well have a trace by synaptic of all my installed applications.

    Sniff.
