| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | from debstd, its interface and implementation suck, and I have maintained it while never really deigning to use it. Now there is a remplacment: dh_install, which ... - copies files, doesn't move them. Closes: #75360, #82649 - doesn't have that whole annoying debian/package.files vs. debian/files mess, as it uses debian/install. - supports copying empty subdirs. Closes: #133037 - doesn't use tar, thus no error reproting problems. Closes: #112538 - files are listed relative to the pwd, debian/tmp need not be used at all, so no globbing issues. Closes: #100404 - supports -X. Closes: #116902 - the whole concept of moving files out of a directory is gone, so this bug doesn't really apply. Closes: #120026 - This is exactly what Bill Allombert asked for in #117383, even though I designed it seemingly independantly. Thank you Bill! Closes: #117383 * Made debhelper's debian/rules a lot simpler by means of the above. * Updated example rules file to use dh_install. Also some reordering and other minor changes. * dh_movefiles is lightly deprecated, and when you run into its bugs and bad design, you are incouraged to just use dh_install instead. * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in bin/ dirs +x. Closes: #119039 * dh_fixperms: in v4 only, make all files in etc/init.d executable (of course there's -X ..) * dh_link: in v4 only, finds existing, non-policy-conformant symlinks and corrects them. This has the side effect of making dh_link idempotent. * Added a -h/--help option. This seems very obvious, but it never occured to me before.. * use v4 for building debhelper itself * v4 mode is done, you may now use it without fear of it changing. (This idea of this upload is to get v4 into woody so people won't run into many issues backporting from sarge to woody later on. Packages targeted for woody should continue to use whatever compatability level they are using.)

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | turn on by default for fear of breaking backwards compatability: - dh_makeshlibs makes the postinst/postrm call ldconfig. Closes: #77154 Patch from Masato Taruishi <> (modified). If you use this, be sure dh_makeshlibs runs before dh_installdeb; many old rules files have the ordering backwards. - dh_installdeb now causes all files in /etc to be registered as conffiles. - debian/README is now supported: it is treated exactly like debian/README.Debian. Either file is installed as README.Debian in non-native packages, and now as just README in native packages. Closes: #34628 * This is really only the start of the changes for v3, so use with caution.. * dh_du has finally been removed. It has been deprecated for ages, and a grep of the archive shows that nothing is using it except biss-awt and scsh. I filed bugs on both almost exactly a year ago. Those bugs should now be raised to severity important.. * --number option (to dh_installemacsen) is removed. It has been deprecated for a while and nothing uses it. Use --priority instead.
* r360: * Never refer to root, always uid/gid "0". Closes: #67508joey2000-07-21
* r338: * Patch from Jorgen `forcer' Schaefer <forcer at> (muchjoey2000-03-02
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | modified)to make dh_installwm use new window manager registration method, update-alternatives. Closes: #52156, #34684 (latter bug is obsolete) * Fixed $dh{flavor} to be upper-case. * Deprecated dh_installemavcsen --number; use --priority instead. Also, the option parser requires the parameter be a number now. And, dh_installwm now accepts --priority, and window manager packages should start using it. * dh_installwm now behaves like a proper debhelper command, and reads debian/<package>.wm too. This is a small behavior change; filenames specified on the command line no longer apply to all packages it acts on. I can't belive this program existed for 2 years with such a glaring problem; I guess most people don't need ot register 5 wm's in 3 sub-packages. Anyway, it can handle such things now. :-) * Moved Dh_*.pm to /usr/lib/perl5/Debian/Debhelper. *big* change.
* r322: * dh_fixperms: chown symlinks as well as normal files. Closes: #51169.joey1999-12-01
* r266: * FHS complience. Patch from Johnie Ingram <>.joey1999-09-06
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | For the most part, this was a straight-forward substitution, dh_installmanpages needed a non-obvious change though. * Closes: #42489, #42587, #41732. * dh_installdocs: Adds code to postinst and prerm as specified in, to make /usr/doc/<package> a compatability symlink to /usr/share/doc/<package>. Note that currently if something exists in /usr/doc/<package> when the postinst is run, it will silently not make the symlink. I'm considering more intellingent handing of this case. * Note that if you build a package with this version of debhelper, it will use /usr/share/man, /usr/share/doc, and /usr/share/info. You may need to modify other files in your package that reference the old locations.
