This is how you could do it in Debian .
Basic method for a package "somepackage" version "0.7.1-1" is as follows. (This
does not change the version number, but that is explained in the documentation.):
Get the source package.
in a directory.
dpkg-source -x somepackage_0.7.1-1.dsc to recreate build directory.
3. cd to
Do what you need.
Completes with message
dpkg-buildpackage: full upload (original source is included)
5. Run checks:
Both should complete with no errors reported.
debc somepackage_0.7.1-1_i386.changes | less
On inspection, files contained in package should look OK.
# debi somepackage_0.7.1-1_i386.changes
should install package OK.
# dpkg --purge somepackage
Hope that helps.
