Is there a howto available which explains how to
easily build xbuntu/Debian
packages with the OBS?
may be of interest.
Most information I found on the internet require you
to have a Debian/xbuntu
system already running. But since the idea of the OBS for me is to not have
all that distributions installed locally I would like to do everything inside
of the OBS.
That is exactly one of the purposes of the buildservice -- to build
packages for distributions that you do not have installed locally.
I also have to admit that I'm used to rpms only -
so I do know how to create a
spec file, but I'm totally lost with the debian helper apps.
I would also like to volunteer to put up a wiki page about creating an "xbuntu
spec" out of an existing rpm spec once I understood the procedure.
If you could enhance the above URL, that would be great!
Btw., if wanted I could also help creating a Fedora
dedicated page containing
some useful information you might want to know once you intend to build
There is also http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/Tips_and_Tricks
