Dev: BuildItBuildThePackage

Ok so you've done your Git clone stuff on the package manager or DTC projects and now you'd like to know how to turn it into a package so you can install it on your test server.

(If you didn't see how to do that then look here and here)

First you need to make sure you've installed all the required dev stuff so your system can build a package...

   apt-get install dpkg-dev debhelper devscripts fakeroot 

Now you should be able to make a package...

CD to the folder that git created when you did the clone and run:

   dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

You should end up with a .deb file that you can then use dpkg to install...

  dpkg -i dtc-package-installer_0.24.10-1_all.deb
