[patch] wrong dependencies in Debian package

Reported by: Bodo Meißner <bodo@…> Owned by: bas
Priority: minor Component: debian
Version: 3.1.2 Keywords:


I downloaded the source package as written on and created the Debian package. I installed the package on Ubuntu lucid without inetd or xinetd installed.

The package installation failed in the postinst script because of missing dependencies. The Debian package should include the dependency inetd | xinetd.

Building the Debian package fails with some error messages when cdbs is not installed:

debian/rules:8: /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/ No such file or directory

debian/rules:9: /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/ No such file or directory

debian/rules:10: /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/ No such file or directory

debian/rules:11: /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/ No such file or directory

make: * Keine Regel, um »/usr/share/cdbs/1/class/« zu erstellen. Schluss.

I tried to add cdbs to Build-Depends but it does not help. There should be a check for cdbs in the build process if possible. At least the installation documentation should inform the user that cdbs is needed to build the package.

I think cdbs is not an installation dependency, that's why I removed it from Depends. See attached patch.
