I have a debian (well technically ubuntu) source package, i.e. the .dsc, the .tar.gz, etc., I want to build this. The
dpkg-buildpackage fails, since I don't have all the build dependencies.
Normally I'd use
apt-get build-dep, but this package isn't in apt.
Is there a 'clean', 'proper' way to install all the build dependencies, given a source package. I know I could just open the debian/control file, but I'm curious if there's a 'proper' way.
I have installed
build-essential, and have all the normal compilers etc., this package requires extra software.
