ubiquity- cannot generate deb packages

Asked by kobe on 2013-03-13

I had used two ways to get ubiquity source codes, one is the command of "bzr branch lp:ubiquity", the other is the command of "apt-get source ubiquity". I found there was no different between their codes, and the version is

I want to generate deb packages from source codes, so I use the command of "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot". If I use the codes which from apt-get, I can get the deb packages successfully. But if I use the codes which from bzr branch, error occured.

My OS information is :
  DistroRelease: Ubuntu 13.04 Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (development barnch)
  Package: ubiquity_2.13.13.1
  ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 3.8.0-9-generic
  Uname: Linux 3.8.0-9-generic i686

With Dmitrijs Ledkovs's help, I understand it now.
Here is the email content:
There is difference, lp:ubiquity does not have embedded copies of d-i
code while `apt-get source ubiquity` does have them.
To bootstrap:
$ ./debian/rules update-local
And after that dpkg-buildpackage command should succeed.
I would recommend using:
$ bzr bd
As that will export the tree, bootstrap remaining code, and build
source & binary packages in a clean way.
