NAME

debpatch - Applies a patch to recreate a debian package.

SYNOPSIS

debpatch [OPTION]... DELTA FROMFILE TOFILE debpatch [OPTION]... DELTA / TOFILE debpatch --info PATCH

DESCRIPTION

This program is designed to apply a patch (DELTA) to a Debian package (FROMFILE) and cre‐ ate the Debian package (TOFILE). If the Debian package (FROMFILE) was installed in the host system and the .deb file is not available, then the argument (FROMFILE) may be sub‐ stituted by the keyword / : then debpatch will get the needed data from the host filesys‐ tem.

OPTIONS

--info PATCH Write info on PATCH --no-md5 do not verify MD5 info. -v verbose (can be added multiple times). -d print full traceback on Python errors; save useful info in temporary files in case that a delta fails. -k keep temporary files (use for debugging). --format FORMAT format of recreated debs. FORMAT=deb is the usual, FORMAT=unzipped means that the data.tar part is not compressed, (and this may save some time) -A --accept-unsigned accept unsigned deltas. --gpg-home specify a different home for GnuPG, default for root is /etc/debdelta/gnupg while for other users is unset. See --homedir in gpg(1) for details.
