Hi Lina! How have you been? :-)

No I haven't forgotten, as a matter of fact I've been checking the ATI
website, but 11-6 hasn't come out yet. It should be straightforward to
package it, when it does come out.

The link is:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx

And we are waiting for version 11-6. The versions are named after their
release date: ${LAST_TWO_DIGITS_OF_YEAR}-${MONTH_NUMBER}.

If I miss it, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to package it.

1. You basically download the latest package source from Debian, say
Testing. You modify it to reflect Stable's requirements. This step only
needs to be done once, and I've done it.

2. Then you run debian/rules with arguments telling it to download a
specific version from ATI and "debianize" it.

3. After that you just issue a debuild, optionally with the '-sa'
parameter to include sources in the presumed upload to a Debian archive.

Of course there are incompatibilities occasionally with new versions.
The easy way is to wait for the Debian team to resolve them, and use
their work. Hehe.

I've forgotten the particulars myself so I'll post again when the
package comes out and you can take it from there.

Hey, if you are going to be doing this regularly others should benefit
from your work. I suggest making your work available at Debian
Backports, so that all Stable users can use it! I'm sure they'll accept
you as a maintainer!

Basically modify debian/control. We'll get back on that.

The .dsc no. You just need .orig.tar.gz and .debian.tar.gz.

An easy way is to add sid to your /etc/apt/sources.list (Just duplicate
and change the line for squeeze) and run:

apt-get -t=sid source fglrx-driver

************************************************** ******************
MAKE SURE TO REVERT sources.list AFTERWARDS. Otherwise you'll have a
SERIOUS PROBLEM next time you install a package or safe-upgrade!!!

Sure, works for me. It won't take *that* much time.

> I don't have the ability yet. possibly a mess-er rather a maintainer.

It was just as difficult for me when I was new to the Debian packaging
process (I still am). You'll have much more confidence when you are done
with this package, you'll see. I'll walk you through it.

You should have (if you ran apt-get source) or must create - by
extracting the .tars - the following structure:

fglrx-driver-11-4
fglrx-driver-11-4/debian

First step: run dch from package devscripts in dir fglrx-driver-11-4.
Customize the entry as follows:

fglrx-driver (11-4-2${YOUR_REVISION}) ${SOME_DIST}; urgency=${URGENCY}

For example:

fglrx-driver (11-4-2lina1) lina-testing; urgency=low

Add comments as you like.

Haha, you almost got it.

The short version:

apt-get -t unstable source fglrx-driver

But you need the deb-src line in your sources.list. See my previous
message. Also please forget about dch for now, we need to do something
else first. My mistake!

We are going to do this in parallel, ok? First I do a step, then I write
a message and you do it. That way you'll learn the process, and we'll
make sure there are no mistakes in my instructions.

The long version:
- -----------------

a) First we tell apt about sid:
$ sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
...
deb http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
...
[ESC]:wq (This tells vim to save and exit)

b) Next we run apt-get update:
$ sudo apt-get update

c) Now we forbid normal installation from sid, using a mechanism called
apt-pinning:
$ sudo vim /etc/apt/preferences.d/90-sid.pref
Explanation: Forbid sid.
Package: *
Pin: release n=sid
Pin-Priority: -1
[ESC]:wq ( = save and exit )

d) Now we install the sources from sid.
$ cd &&
mkdir fglrx-driver-debian-package &&
cd fglrx-driver-debian-package

$ pwd
/home/lina/fglrx-driver-debian-package

$ apt-get -t unstable source fglrx-driver

Then we are good to go, we have all packages installed.

There is no risk anymore, thanks to apt-pinning (see first message).

I will follow-up with step 3.

Step 4: Update the changelog
- ----------------------------

a) Install the package devscripts.
$ sudo apt-get install devscripts

b) Tell devscripts who you are:
$ export DEBEMAIL="${YOUR_EMAIL}"
$ export DEBFULLNAME="${YOUR_FULL_NAME}"

You can put the above lines in ~/.profile

c) Update the changelog to set the new version and revision.

$ cd ~/fglrx-driver-debian-package/fglrx-driver-11-5

$ dch

An editor window opens and you add a new entry to the changelog. Here is
mine:
************************************************** *********************
fglrx-driver (1:11-5-0panayk1) squeeze-testing; urgency=low

* Non-maintainer upload.
* New upstream release.

************************************************** *********************

c1) squeeze-testing is the distribution. I maintain an apt-repo. You
could try lina-testing.
c2) 1:11-5-0panayk1 is the revision. Let's dissect it.

1 = this is the epoch
:
11-5 = this is the upstream (ATI) version
- -
0panayk1 = The Debian revision

Let's analyze the Debian revision.

0 = because this is not part of Debian yet.
panayk1 = the first revision by panayk.

So you could put something like: 1:11-5-0lina1

d) You can use dpkg --compare-versions to compare versions:

$ man dpkg

dpkg is in package... well dpkg!

$ sudo apt-get install dpkg

You don't need root priviliges to build a debian package. Use chown to
change the owner of fglrx-driver-debian-package and contents. If your
username is lina:

$ sudo chown -R lina:lina ~/fglrx-driver-debian-package

Please use dch to remove the 1:11-4-2.1 entry. 'Modify' rather than
'add' is the correct word. Sorry for my mistake. We only need the custom
entry: 1:11-5-0lina1 plus the entries from the Debian team.

The relevant part in 'man dpkg' is '--compare-versions'

Only 3 steps left, but they are the most critical...
