My first deb

Yes, am done with my first deb creation! All it took was a simple control file to be under the directory containing all your files needed for installation and a simple command: dpkg -b . first_all_0.1.deb.

Somehow, first_all_0.1.deb comes up as a hidden file. Need to read more.
But, am feeling good.

p.s: first_all_0.1.deb is not the actual name of the deb I made ;-)

  1. Rags, I don't know whether I've blabbered earlier about my sticking onto some strange Linux distributions when people chose user-friendly stuff. But here's an other way round response :)

    ... Ubuntu, AFAIK, meant to switch desktop users from WinDoze, ergo, everything is made easy. With that background, you may want to put in a GUI way of packaging too apart from dpkg in the blog...

    well, just a thought! :)
