cvs-debi - install cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package


cvs-debi [options] [package ...]


cvs-debi is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild. It
uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in that run. It
then runs debpkg -i on every .deb archive listed in the .changes file to install them,
assuming that all of the .deb archives live in the same directory as the .changes file.
Note that you probably don't want to run this program on a .changes file relating to a
different architecture after cross-compiling the package!

If a list of packages is given on the command line, then only those debs with names in
this list of packages will be installed.

Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with
the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter.

Since installing a package requires root privileges, debi calls debpkg rather than dpkg
directly. Thus debi will only be useful if it is either being run as root or debpkg can
be run as root. See debpkg(1) for more details.


All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed
below have any effect. For more details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1)

-adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the
search for the .changes file. They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-
buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file.

The name of the CVS module.

The name of the package.

The version number of the package.

-Ttag The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.

-Rroot directory
Root of the original sources archive.

-Wwork directory
The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.

This option provides the CVS default module prefix.

--help, --version
Show help message and version information respectively.
