"make debian" fails


I am trying to compile debian packages using the “make debian” target, and it fails. I do the following:

wget ftp://root.cern.ch/root/root_v5.14.00b.source.tar.gz tar xvzf root_v5.14.00b.source.tar.gz mv root root-5.14.00b cd root-5.14.00b/ emacs -nw build/package/debian/rules # remove the --disable-pythia line make debian

and get the following error:

Running build/unix/compiledata.sh Making include/compiledata.h bin/rmkdepend -R -fcint/src/g__cfunc.d -Y -w 1000 -- -pipe -Wall -m64 -fPIC -Iinclude -DR__HAVE_CONFIG -DG__REGEXP -DG__UNIX -DG__SHAREDLIB -DG__OSFDLL -DG__ROOT -DG__REDIRECTIO -DG__64BIT -pthread -- cint/src/g__cfunc.c make[2]: bin/rmkdepend: Command not found make[2]: *** [cint/src/g__cfunc.o] Error 127 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/giraudpf/Desktop/root-5.14.00b' make[1]: *** [build-arch-stamp] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/giraudpf/Desktop/root-5.14.00b' make: *** [debian] Error 2

System is ubuntu 6.10 amd64

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?



Hi Pierre-Francois,

“make debian” should only be used to make debain packages of a ROOT build. In your case just do:

make install

Cheers, Fons.

Hi Fons,

yes I do want to make debian packages, this is the reason why I am using the “make debian” target


Is there anyone who could help me with this problem?

Should I file a bug report?
