dh_quilt_patch(1) apply patches listed in debian/patches/series

SYNOPSIS

dh_quilt_patch [debhelperĀ options]

DESCRIPTION

dh_quilt_patch simply calls quilt push -a after having set the environment variable QUILT_PATCHES to debian/patches. All patches listed in debian/patches/series are then applied in the current directory. The command does not fail if the patches have already been applied.

You can use another directory instead of debian/patches by setting (and exporting) the environment variable QUILT_PATCH_DIR.

EXAMPLES

dh_quilt_patch is usually called indirectly in a rules file via the dh command.

        %:
                dh [email protected] --with quilt

It can also be direcly called at the start of the build (or configure) rule.

        build:
                dh_quilt_patch
                ./configure
                $(MAKE)

NOTES

This tool is useless if you use the source package format 3.0 (quilt). Consider switching to this source format if you haven't done it yet.
