Anti, et. al.,
I forked an existing media program a while back (Audacious) and would like to make it available here for other Antix users via Synaptic/apt-get. It's currently installable only as a tarball (untar, make, sudo make install). It should be fairly easy(?) to take the existing Audacious and Audacious-plugins package debs (already in Antix) and modify them somehow to make two new packages that install this forked version. I've poked around a bit into Debian packaging and found some (confusing) info on creating packages for NEW programs, but I'm not sure the right and best way to create a new deb package from an existing one (with the same dependencies, etc.). Can someone w/experience w/making packages provide any assistance?
For the curious, the new program (Fauxdacious) adds video-capability and several other new features to the popular Audacious media player, features that the Audacious team is not currently interested in including. For more details, see: https://wildstar84.wordpress.com/2015/1 ... -released/
Thank you in advance!
