Original bug report:
Continuing the discussion from Whonix Desktop Installer with Calamares - field report:
First, try to build package
security-misc (or any other known good package for testing). That is a prerequisite exercise.
Then, move on to be building the failing
hardened-malloc package the “easy” way.
The build process of building any of the packages by Whonix developers is always very similar. This very wiki page explain how to build package
security-misc. By replacing the name of the package security-misc with the name of any other package you might be interested in building, the other package would be build.
Does that work for you?
If that works for you, let’s move on building a known good pacakge using cowbuilder.
build-steps.d/1100_prepare-build-machine sets up a chroot in
/var/cache/pbuilder using cowbuilder.
Will follow up with instructions on how to build a package using cowbuilder.
