Trying to learn how to create source code packages with upkg, I started with a simple case (at least I thought so), with boxes (http://boxes.thomasjensen.com/
The Makefile in the source code just creates the binary and the manpage, you have to install them manually. So I added some documentation, then edited the Makefile and added an install entry and an uninstall entry. The commands "make", "make install" and "make uninstall" work flawlessly. So far, so good.
I then made the tarball with tar cPvjf (tried tar cvjf as well) boxes-paldo-1.11.tar.bz2 and put it into the sources directory of my local repository. then I wrote a spec named boxes-paldo.xml like shown at the end of this posting.
When I now say upkg-build (as root), I get:
System already up-to-date.
It does not install anything nor writes it a logfile. Up to now I *think* that I followed the instructions in
What am I doing wrong?
Here is my spec boxes-paldo.xml:
