DEB and RPM packaging

by Socrates   Last Updated January 06, 2018 05:02 AM

I have an application that I'd like to pack into DEB and RPM for making it installable into Linux distributions such as:

  • Debian
  • Ubuntu
  • Linux Mint
  • Fedora
  • OpenSUSE

Do I need to develop an extra DEB file for Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint? Or does it suffice to create one for Debian that'll work for Ubuntu and Linux Mint, too?

What about RPM with Fedora and OpenSUSE?
