Debian package

Easy way to create a Debian package and local package repository

This article describes a simple way to create a home made debian package and include it into a local package repository. Although we could use an existing Debian/Ubuntu package, we will start from scratch by creating and packaging our own trivial application. Once our package is ready, we will include it into our local package repository. This article illustrates a very simplistic approach, however it may serve as a template in many different scenarios.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to create a trivial debian package
  • How to create a local debian repository
  • How to add the repository to the list of software sources
