CVS-DEBI(1) General Commands Manual CVS-DEBI(1)
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-compil-
ing 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) manpage.
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.
Root of the original sources archive.
The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.
This option provides the CVS default module prefix.
Show help message and version information respectively.
