    QT Creator \ QT 4.6.2 \ Deb Package Naming Confusing

    Hi,

    I am trying to recompile package http://repository.maemo.org/extras-d....5.orig.tar.gz for my N900.

    But the name of the final deb file output: symfonie_0.2.5-6_armel.deb is strange to me; When I set in QT Creator -> Projects -> Build Steps -> Create Package on the Major / Minor / Patch field, it could only combined into symfonie_0.2.5_armel.deb but how to add the "-6" suffix?; finally my QT Creator doesn't recognize the output and failed deployment on my device.

    Could somebody help me on this? Thanks.

    0.2.5-6 version is set in changelog file. in Qt Creator you can find it from qtc_packaging/debian_harmattan/changelog. If Qt Creator doesn't like -6 suffix, just remove it. You may want to increase version number so that new package apears newer than the old one.

    Hi mikkovtr,

    Thanks very much for your prompt reply. It works as you explained except I found the changlog in PROJECT/debian. But it doesn't really matter.

    One further question is how should I let the QT Creator realize the -6 suffix for the deployment if I want to keep. Or I only could deploy the -6 deb package manually.

    Thanks.

    In my test project QT creator uses the version string as is from changelog file. In "Create Package" Major, Minor and Patch is 0 and they even cannot be changed.

    Maybe you have checked "Skip packaging step" which makes you are not able to change the Major / Minor / Patch versions. But anyway, I will live without the full fix. Thx for your kind help here.
