I'm building binary only package:
dpkg-buildpackage -b -us -uc
The build actually runs successfully, but I have deleted previous version of the package and now dpkg-genchanges complains:
dh_builddeb dpkg-deb: building package `zzz' in `../zzz_01-4_amd64.deb'. dpkg-genchanges -b >../zzz_01-4_amd64.changes dpkg-genchanges: binary-only upload - not including any source code dpkg-genchanges: error: cannot fstat file ../zzz_01-1_amd64.deb: No such file or directory dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-genchanges gave error exit status 2
Is there any way to skip this step? I really do not need it, as I'm building deb package for local use and previous versions are unnecessary.
