installing new, patched package containing 2 extra shell scripts
 
We have installed a package called xen-utils on our Debian Squeeze box.

Now we have applied a patch to the xen-utils package. The patch adds 3 shell-scripts to the package.

The problem is, the new package installs everything correctly except the 3 shell scripts created by the patch.

We have applied the patch correctly. When we call dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc -us to build the package, a log file reports that the shell-scripts have been created. They reside in a directory called,
/home/walter/workdir/xen-4.0.1/debian/build/install-utils_amd64/etc/xen/scripts

This looks right--

but when I install the package the scripts are not moved from

/home/walter/workdir/xen-4.0.1/debian/build/install-utils_amd64/etc/xen/scripts

to

/etc/xen/scripts

Any ideas why those scripts are not being moved?

Installed scripts
 
I would like to know how you think the installation will move those scripts from their default location?

Good question. What I mean is, how do I indicate the 3 files I want to install, located in ..[install-utils].../etc/xen/scripts, so that they are included in the package?

For example, below I copy output from dkpg-deb -c MY_PACKAGE. You can see, directories under /usr have been included.

Somewhere, I should think, there must be a rule or statement indicating that files in the path cited above, ...install-utils_PATH... should be included in the package.

Where do I add that rule or otherwise ensure that those files are to be included also?

Usually you would add "new files to be installed" to 'rules', I guess.

In xen(-4.0.1) it seems to be "rules.real" > xen_4.0.1-4.debian.tar.gz
> > http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool....debian.tar.gz

http://packages.debian.org/source/squeeze/xen

.

Thanks very much--if rules proves better I will use that. In the meantime, on the same level (under debian/), I appear to have solved the problem by adding a file of name {PACKAGE_NAME}.install containing a single line:

/etc/xen/scripts/{domain-lock,vm-monitor}


In brackets are the names of the 2 files I needed to install; the 3rd file is a separate problem.

bweaver 03-01-2012 11:42 AM

yes that {package_name].install file did the trick, now testing shows.

and as for copying the third file, that was accomplished in the makefile for the utility,

with a simple line: cp $(DEST_DIR)$(XEN_SCRIPT_DIR)/vm-monitor $(DEST_DIR)$(XEN_SCRIPT_DIR)/set-lock
