Building with gem2deb
Note: Always verify the command has finished successfully and make sure there is no error before proceeding to next command.
Setup your environment
Add the following variables in your ~/.bashrc file. DEBEMAIL and DEBFULLNAME variables are used by debian tools to set your name and email.
export DEBEMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org export DEBFULLNAME='Your Name' alias lintian='lintian -iIEcv --pedantic --color auto' alias git-import-dsc='git-import-dsc --author-is-committer --pristine-tar' alias clean='fakeroot debian/rules clean'
Note: You can also use debclean command instead of setting alias for clean.
and update your current environment by running
$ source ~/.bashrc
Build the package
First you need install gem2deb
apt-get install gem2deb
Create a build directory and go there
mkdir -p ~/build/rails-6 && cd $_
and then clone the ruby-bootsnap repository
git clone https://salsa.debian.org/jmkim-guest/ruby-bootsnap cd ruby-bootsnap
We need three branches: upstream, pristine-tar, and master.
git checkout upstream git checkout pristine-tar git checkout master
Once that is done build the package with
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
-us means do not sign the package, and -uc means do not sign the .changes file.
When it has finished check for lintian errors:
If you get errors, you have to correct them. Then run dpkg-buildpackage again and test with lintian again.
Error case 1: Unmet build dependencies
If you get errors with Unmet build dependencies, install them and run dpkg-buildpackage again.
apt install rake-compiler rubocop ruby-mocha ruby-msgpack
Error case 2: dpkg-source: error: can't build with source format ...
Try origtarz and run dpkg-buildpackage again.
