I have a filesystem where I want to add debian packages. How could I
install dpkg from scratch so that I can use it to install packages?
I extracted dpkg 1.10 with its dependant packages. (dselect and ncurses)
I have a /usr/lib/dpkg directory with a status file and some other,
but when I do:
dpkg -i somepackage.deb, it fails with not finding the updates file.
I dont care about dependencies as I am already aware of them for the
packages I want to install. I simply want dpkg to install the files in
the right places and perhaps run the postinst preinst scripts as what
Do you know how to install dpkg to work like this?
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
