Creating .deb packages on Mac OS X
Again thanks to Marcello Teodori, now I'm able to automatically create .deb packages on my development MacBook Pro.
Marcello explained me how to install the required application, dpkg - and the procedure works for a lot of typical Linux applications.
- install MacPorts;
- add to your PATH the directory
- execute the following command to update the MacPorts installation:
sudo port selfupdate
- at last install dpkg:
sudo port install dpkg
Et voilÃ , dpkg is ready to run. For what concerns steps 3 and 4 consider that MacPorts uses the rsync protocol, so pay attention to your proxy or firewalls settings.
