There is another error which is not related with your task but you have to solve.
Today while I am building package from source by using deb-src, I get awesome error related with SPACE and TAB. As you can expect, there can be many reason why this error is happen but for me it was copy-paste issue related with my editor.
While building package I had to change parameters about how package should be compiled.
I copy necessary file via right click and paste it to my file. While it’s happening my awesome editor changed the spaces in wrong way than while I am building package I get this error.
debian/rules:78: *** missing separator (did you mean TAB instead of 8 spaces?). Stop.
Solution is easy
- Run docker container with volume mount when you are in project directory
1docker run -it -v $(pwd):/tmpdir <imagename> /bin/bash
- Copy your files
1cp necesaaryfile1 necessaryfile2 /tmpdir/
- Edit files with editor which you think that is not going to change tabs or spaces.
