dh_builddeb - build Debian binary packages

DH_BUILDDEB(1) Debhelper DH_BUILDDEB(1)

NAME

dh_builddeb - build Debian binary packages

SYNOPSIS

dh_builddeb [debhelper options] [--destdir=directory] [ --filename=name] [--  params]

DESCRIPTION

dh_builddeb simply calls dpkg-deb(1) to build a Debian package or packages. It will also build dbgsym packages when dh_strip(1) and dh_gencontrol(1) have prepared them.
It supports building multiple binary packages in parallel, when enabled by DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.
When the Rules-Requires-Root field is not (effectively) binary-targets, dh_builddeb will pass --root-owner-group to dpkg-deb(1).

OPTIONS

--destdir=directory
Use this if you want the generated .deb files to be put in a directory other than the default of " ..".
--filename=name
Use this if you want to force the generated .deb file to have a particular file name. Does not work well if more than one .deb is generated!
-- params
Pass params to dpkg-deb(1) when it is used to build the package.
-uparams
This is another way to pass params to dpkg-deb(1). It is deprecated; use -- instead.

SEE ALSO

debhelper(7)
This program is a part of debhelper.
