My quick and dirty notes on building deb backports

  1. Grab the sources

dget http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/h/htop/htop_3.0.5-2.dsc

  1. Install build dependcies

sudo mk-build-deps --install --remove

  1. Bump the package version

dch --bpo

  1. Test building (apt-file might help)

fakeroot debian/rules binary

  1. Build the deb!

dpkg-buildpackage -b --no-sign
