Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25

Package build failed. Here's the log:
dh
dh: error: specify a sequence to run
make: *** [debian/rules:7: binary] Error 25


***

The above is the exact error I get when trying to convert into a .deb for easy install. This previously worked and have been using it for a very long time, and it's not the file as I tried to convert one that I previously had success with to see if it was the file. I tried so many combos in the search engine and couldn't find anything similar to this. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I have been using Devuan for years now and want to thank everyone involved with keeping this project running. I briefly left during ASCII to Artix for games support and certain Vulkan/Mesa/Steam/Etc support, but with Chimaera the modern media/gaming has been great.

What is the rpm you wish to convert?

I came across this via websearch.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/663 … ild-failed

I wonder if using the correct architecture might be the issue, ie; instead of noarch use x86_64 and so on?

Re: Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25

I'm using alien to convert tar.bz2 into .deb packages...
So there isn't an install "package" yet.

I have 4 other computers that I need to install these packages on.

I also tried installing directly from alien with "-i" and i still get error 25.

***Also, all the packages are x86_64***

The I keep several versions as backups. Ones that previously converted into .deb successfully are no longer doing that. I don't recall when it took place and didn't think about it when installing updates, but something has changed in the last ~month that alien no longer functions the way that it did previously.

Re: Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25

Aww, man. I should have named myself "Knucklehead" instead. Thank you for making me aware to check the base distro's forums. smile I'll be 100% sure to check Debian forums in the future before I waste anyone's time. Take care && have a great day!

The debian forum may show a fix, but muliple posts are confusing me. It's only a few days old from the issue, so I'll just keep checking for a fix.

Re: Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25

You can check here for this sort of thing as well, devuan is a fork of debian. Most packages people use on devuan are from the debian repositories so it benefits everyone to ask questions here or there.

Re: Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25

Open the file located at:

/usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package/Deb.pm

Change:

                 dh $@
To:

                 dh \$\@

Should look like:



# debian/rules for alien

PACKAGE=\$(shell dh_listpackages)

%:
    dh \$\@

override_dh_clean:
    dh_clean -d


*** This totally fixed the issue, if someone needs or wants to see the source it was found at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=983492
Many thanks, dice, for pointing me in the right direction.

Re: Alien on Chimaera Failing with Error 25
