“http://wiki.debian.org” says “creating empty package is easy job”. But I got errors while creating it.
First choose a name for a file which is not used by any other package.
Aptitude is an the Debian package manager.
Install equivs by giving following command on terminal:
sudo apt-get install equivs
$ equivs-control package-minimal $ ls package-minimal
equivs-control generates a file which is close to debian/control in a debian source package.
You have to edit the file to modify and uncomment some lines.
create an empty Debian binary package.
$ equivs-build package-minimal $ ls package-minimal package-minimal_1.0_all.deb
you can control that it is lintian clean!
$ lintian package-minimal_1.0_all.deb
