Hey Guys,

I have been working with Debian for quite a while, and have been progressing on making my developments there. But i want to extend my knowledge more on the said OS, is there anyone of you has a Debian Bible on where i could get a copy of it. Or do you know a download link of it. I have heard that it is a very nice book.

Thanks,
Engr :)

Err.. I'm a little puzzled by how you mean "compiling packages".. Would these for example be downloaded source tarballs, perhaps RPM's or applications you have written yourself with C or similar?..
Whatever.. I digress. I haven't seen any of the listed books available for free download (well, not legally anyway), but as debian is pretty straightforward I can't see the process being different in many respects from the generic configure- make routine. Now if you are talking about platform independent compiling that's a different kettle of fish.
One of the better resources I found for general building of packages and the like exists at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org who have a book you can download free. It covers building your own linux, but it was a great primer for me when I switched 8 months ago.
As to compiling specifically on debian, just follow the standard *nix practice http://www.luv.asn.au/overheads/compile.html and with a little care for the correct includes for the various gcc, libc etc. versions for your debian everything should be fine.
Believe.. If I can compile from source and get working things on debian then anybody can!

Ok i see, but what I mean is compiling from source if in case the configure script is not present

compiling packages on debian should be the same as compiling packages on most other distros. if theres no configure script, there should be some other file(s) present that will compile the program. read the documentation that came with whatever you're trying to compile, usually a file called README :]
what is it that you're trying to make?
