Re: Alternatives to Checkinstall

Oh duh, I'm an idiot. I could just install a newer version of Cmake from the backports! Ok, I will play around with this and see if I can get Checkinstall working again because I think that's the route to go. Apt-build is great but I'd like more control over the process and I believe compiling from the mainline sources would do that.
