HOWTO: Creating .deb-Packages With Checkinstall
I have written a tutorial describing how to create Debian packages with
checkinstall. Checkinstall is a nice tool to create simple .deb-packages
that you can use in your local network (e.g. if you have to install the same
piece of software on multiple computers running Debian). It lets you compile
and install software from the sources like before, but with the difference
that you end up with a Debian package which also means that you can easily
uninstall the software you just compiled by running dpkg -r!
