I'm running Ubuntu 14.04.
I have many 3rd party system libraries which I use for projects, but managing library installation is difficult. Some libraries are .deb files, some are built from source (which I then create a .deb from), and some are .run files.
My goal is to have my own personal repository which hosts these 3rd party system libraries in the form of .deb files. My issue is converting .run files into .deb files.
I've tried using checkinstall to run the .deb file (specifically the UEye camera drivers found here ), hoping that checkinstall would capture the modifications to my filesystem, but unfortunately that was a disaster.
Are there any clean ways to turn .run files into .deb files?
