NAME

d-shlibmove - Move shared library files around in Debian package creation process

SYNOPSIS

d-shlibmove [options] shared-library.so

DESCRIPTION

Call this program in debian/rules as a replacement of dh_movefiles for shared library packages.
 
It also checks debian/control for validity.
 

OPTIONS

--movedev [filename] [relative dir-path]
Install file into relative directory path within the -dev package. The dir will be created with install -d and the file will be moved.
 
--moveshl [filename] [relative dir-path]
Install file into relative directory path within the shared library runtime package. The dir will be created with install -d and the file will be moved.
 
--movedevdoc [filename]
Install file into the documentation directory of -dev package. The dir will be created with install -d and the file will be moved.
 
Added in version 0.4
 
--extralib [shared-library.so]
Install the shared library in the same package as the main shared library.
 
--multiarch
 
By default d-shlibmove installs the shared library and any extralibs into /usr/lib. Add this flag to install them into /usr/lib/<architecture-tripplet> instead.
 
Added in version 0.48
 
--commit
 
By default d-shlibmove runs in a dry-run mode. Add this flag to make the moving actually happen.
 
--suffix [suffix to add to shared library package]
 
Add a suffix to shared library package. This is a workaround when binary interface to package changed, and some fixup to Debian packaging needs to be done.
 
Added in version 0.3
 
--devsuffix [suffix to add to development package]
 
Add a suffix to development package. For making incompatible development package.
 
--shlibs-local [current-version]
 
Create a debian/shlibs.local file to use, and specify current-version of shared library package. You need to remove debian/shlibs.local, because this only appends to, not overwrite.
 
Added in version 0.3
 
--devunversioned
 
Install into unversioned development package.
 
Added in version 0.42
 
--ignorelibdep
 
Suppress shlib dependency. Useful when dynamically resolved e.g. using CDBS.
 
Added in version 0.42
 
--c102
 
Add c102 suffix to package names, for C++ ABI transition.
 
Added in version 0.8
 
--ldbl
 
Add dbl suffix to package names.
 
Added in version 0.35
 
--v5
 
Add v5 suffix to package names.
 
Added in version 0.61
 
--include-a
 
Install the *.a files. This is the default behavior.
 
Added in version 0.51
 
--exclude-a
 
Avoid installing *.a files.
 
Added in version 0.51
 
--include-la
 
Install the *.la files. This is the default behavior.
 
Added in version 0.45
 
--exclude-la
 
Avoid installing *.la files.
 
Added in version 0.45
 
--override [override statement]
Add an overriding sed expression, which looks like --override s/libshared1-dev/libshared-dev/. This expression is executed after the other rules.
 
Multiple --override can be specified.
 
Added in version 0.30
 

EXIT CODE

Return 1 on error.
 
Return 2 on dry-run.
 
Return 0 on success.
 

EXAMPLES

The following is a sample command-line of a hypothetical package installation.
 
d-shlibmove --commit --movedev "debian/tmp/usr/include/*" usr/include --extralib debian/tmp/usr/lib/libhomeman-pthread.so debian/tmp/usr/lib/libhomeman.so
