How can I rename a .deb package that can be uploaded to reprepro?
For example, I have a deb package
example-latest.deb which is the latest version, I have created a custom repository so users can download it from there, but there are multiple packages with the same name on the existing ubuntu repos. So basically I want to rename this
example-latest.deb to something like
myname.deb so users that use my repository can install the package by typing
apt install myname
from the deb package, I have ran the following:
changestool myname.changes adddeb myname.deb changestool myname.changes setdistribution ubuntu gpg --clearsign myname.changes
and after looking at the myname.changes I see the package is named something like
example_2.5.1_all.deb which makes me unable to upload it. I can rename the file to comply with this but then I am not really accomplishing anything.
Anybody knows what is the best way to rename a file?
