http://unix.stackexchange.com – Ok, here is one thing that puzzles me... I'm trying to build a package from source, and then use checkinstall to generate a .deb package. Note that I want to just create the .deb package, but I do NOT want to install it. So, here's an example - I'm on Ubuntu 11.04, and first I install it's feh package from the default repositories; which has a version number apparently being 1.3.4.dfsg.1-3 Then I'm trying to build feh from source; got make to pass, and can run the new feh from the command line; splendid. Now finally, to create a deb package, I use the following command line: sudo checkin (HowTos)
