Patching a Debian Package

Traduction: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Catégories : [ Informatique ]

I finally found a tutorial that explains how to patch existing Debian packages. I just did that for wmweather that stopped working after NOAA changed the URL where the METAR data is published.

In a nutshell, and in case the original web page disappears, it goes like that:

apt-get source wmweather
cd wmweather-2.4.5
dch --nmu
mkdir debian/patches # because it didn't exist
quilt new update-url.patch
quilt edit src/wmweather.c
quilt refresh
debuild -us -uc

After that I could simply install the new package that had been created.
