I used the python-stdeb in the ubuntu 10.04 repo to install itself using the
newest version from the git repo:
1) Add the following to ~/.pydistutils.cfg:
2) If necessary, edit a stdeb.cfg file which contains the options for debian/control.
The stdeb git repo already has a sensible stdeb.cfg file, but for another project,
the following might be appropriate:
XS-Python-Version: >= 2.6
3) python setup.py bdist_deb
4) dpkg -i deb_dist/python-stdeb_0.6.0+git-1_all.deb
NB: comparing that .deb
with the one in the
Shows similar install paths ... so I think everythings ok
Another possibility would be:
$ sudo checkinstall --install=no python setup.py install
But I suppose stdeb is more savvy in its pythonic ways ...
