Thanks for replying.

So as python-starpy requires asterisk in Debian Wheezy repo, for a Debian setup the alternatives are either :
– to install it from source
– tto build my own custom package removing this asterisk dependency (is it easy or even possible ?)
– to use another solution such as pyst.

  • Installing from Source Code might well be the simplest solution.

    If you need to install something on several boxen, you can make your own .deb package -fairly- easily — although it probably will have too many little technicalities to be accepted by the Debian project.

    What I have done with homebrew .debs is have the package depend on `build-
    essential` and the necessary `*-dev` .debs, install the Source Code files under
    /usr/src/, then do the build process in the postinst script. This allows you to install the same .deb on 32 bit, 64 bit or Raspberry Pi architectures.

    Yes, I agree.

    For a complete packager beginner, how much time would it (very roughly)
    take to its first .deb package ?

    I didn’t know about these dummy packages.

    Thank you very much for letting me know about: this solution is very interesting (though I wonder if starpy should really depend on asterisk in the first place, given it characteristics).

    Thanks again.

  • Thank you very much for this invaluable answer !!

    I’m gonna try it as soon as possible.

    Thanks again.
