Building Debian/Ubuntu package

Postby jhausherr » 22. Sep 2008, 17:44

Hi,

I just compiled the OSE-2.0.0 and found the debian subfolder. Is it possible to build a debian package for the self-compiled VirtualBox? (for installation housekeeping)

I could not find any documentation yet.

Thx,
Jens

another is use
