Debian Packaging

This page aims to explain how to create debian packages for FPC.

Getting sources

FPC sources are managed using SVN. The most covignent was to get sources in order to build a release is using the svn export command :

svn export http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpcbuild/tags/release_x_y_z fpcbuild-x.y.z

Building packages

For general knowledge about building FPC release packages, plese refer to Release engineering page.

The top make file of the fpcbuild-x.y.z supports the deb target which is intended to build Debian packages from sources.

make deb

However, user may want to use his own packeging rules file

make deb DEBDIR=<some path to debian dir>

Or use a particular libgdb version

make deb GDBLIBDIR=<path/${OS_TARGET}/${CPU_TARGET}>

How it works
