I am trying to edit an Apache module on Debian (strictly, I'm doing this on Raspbian Jessie-Lite), and am broadly following the Debian build instructions:
$ mkdir -p ~/src/debian; cd ~/src/debian $ apt-get source apache2-bin $ cd apache2-2.4.10 $ debuild -b -uc -us
And the build process takes roughly one and a half hours on an olde original Pi. Which is fine. Once!
But I believe the build process is performing a
make clean and so after a minor edit of a single mod_*.c file, it wants to rebuild the entire thing, which is kind of slowing down my development!
I have tried adding
-dc to the
debuild command, but then it didn't build anything. I even tried deleting the target mod_*.so file to "encourage" it into rebuilding it, but still no!
UPDATE 2016-08-21: Adding -nc to the debuild command does not cause modules to be recompiled. Here's the output from that command:
