Subject: [vox-tech] help with creating dpkg's

today i decided to teach myself how to package things into deb format.

i'd like to package one of bill's games, maybe circus-linux or madbomber.

the trouble is that his games require >= SDL 1.0 (which debian can provide)
and two other libraries: SDL_image and SDL_mixer, which debian does NOT
provide, as far as i know.  you have to download the source for these
libraries and compile/install them yourself.

is it possible to have a dependency on a library which has no entry in the
dpkg database?


iWon.com       http://www.iwon.com     why wouldn't you?
