Hi! I already managed to create some packages from a software project for Centos/Red Hat. Jenkins/Hudson is checking new commits and if the job succeeds, the package building is triggered. Now I want to do the same for Debian/Unbuntu and read some tutorials, but still didn't get far yet ... so if someone could answer my questions or point me in the right direction (which saves me a lot trial-and-error), I would be very thankful.
-First of all, dh_make seems to need at least some manual input, Jenkins doesn't like that too much and locks up (and of course the build should run automatically). Do I need to use it at all? Maybe it's enough to use it once, edit the files (rules etc.) and include some commands in Jenkins to just copy the folder and files for new versions?
-To install the files manually, I have to use ./create (plus some options), some make-targets (not all) and execute a script that's creating the database-user, tables and so forth. I read it's easy, if there's stuff like that and wrote a rules-file that should do it all by itself or so but it didn't work. What would be a recommendable way to just execute the stuff I want and which tool to use?
