Building deb packages. Having a lintian issue.

  • Hi,
    I have an OMV 4 machine that does double duty as a Debian package builder (nothing to do with OMV).
    After a build I run lintian against the new pkg. When running a build on my OMV 4 machine I consistently get this in my lintian output:
    'Opening configuration file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99openmediavault-proxy - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied)'


    As I say, the packages have nothing to do with OMV, and that file is completely empty.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of a resolution? I don't know OMV very well (and I come from Ubuntu) so I'm not really sure where to start.
    Thanks very much

  • Thanks for the quick reply.
    Perms are indeed 640.


    I have just noticed that I get the same response when I do something like 'apt search unzip' (note that I ran this as a regular user).
    I suspect that the problem revolves around the fact that I use fakeroot to run lintian. My preference is to keep it that way.


    What I don't understand (and you'd be the person most likely to know I suppose) is why that file? There are 5 other '99' prefixed files in that directory? And, is there a straightforward way around it?


    Cheers!

    I thought this fixed but I guess not. Just delete the file. You will have to re-delete it if you make any repo changes in the web interface though.
