@actionparsnip, I want to do some changes and then verify my change works. so I want to know how to build this deb package :)

Andy (andyliuliming) said : #4

actually I'm trying to build the
"linux-cloud-tools-common" package.
I suppose "sudo fakeroot debian/rules binary" would produce this.
but I only got the "linux-azure-tools-4.15.0-1014_4.15.0-1014.14_amd64.deb" "linux-azure-cloud-tools-4.15.0-1014_4.15.0-1014.14_amd64.deb" and so on. but the "linux-cloud-tools-common" are not there.
could you please help?

Andy (andyliuliming) said : #5

BTW, I already do the change
-do_tools_common = false
+do_tools_common = true
in the file "debian.azure/rules.d/amd64.mk"

It seems that you are confusing the packages built from the "linux-azure" and those built from the "linux" source.
