Build strongswan v5.5.0 debian package -- with debug symbols

Usually I am using the packages from the official repositories. However, sometimes it's necessary to use a newer version, I recently had to do this with strongswan and I'm sharing the procedure for other people to try.

Get the build dependencies

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

apt-get update
apt-get install devscripts fakeroot
apt-get build-dep strongswan


Obtain and build the package

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

mkdir ~/work
cd ~/work
debcheckout strongswan
cd strongswan
sed -e '/dh_strip/ s/^#*/#/' -i debian/rules
sed -e 's/debhelper.*/debhelper,/g' -i debian/control
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b


How to add debug symbols for MariaDB Debian/Ubuntu packages

I don't know about other distributions, but I know that the debug symbols were stripped from Debian/Ubuntu packages. If there are some crashes reported I won't be able to fully analyze them. The only way to fix this problem is to build the packages again.

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

git clone https://github.com/MariaDB/server.git
cd server/
git branch -a
git checkout 10.0

apt-get install libdistro-info-perl
apt-get install fakeroot
apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libpam0g-dev dpatch libjemalloc-dev
apt-get install libboost-all-dev libjudy-dev libjudydebian1
apt-get install build-essential dpkg-dev devscripts hardening-wrapper
apt-get build-dep mysql-server
