I seemed to get a little further trying to build a .deb file for release in the Ovi store on Maemo devices, at least I saw a .deb file in the project. I did change the setting for the project to "Release" for Maemo. It generated a new and much larger .deb file but I got the following errors when trying to upload to the Ovi store.
There were some validation errors! Further details are by the fields.
Alert: File format: .deb
Any tips, ideas, advice?
