I'm currently building a large package which is handled with automake. Package is composed by C,C++ and Python. So far i have good results with C/C++ but i'm blocked when it comes to python dependencies.
I personnaly run a script when i'm installing, and i'd like to run it whenever
make install is called.
For now it's called by configure.ac but it's run at unecessary times.
The script is doing 3 things :
- Placing some python files in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/(dist|site)-packages
- Installing a homemade python module
- Checking for python & program dependencies such as geckodriver and install those if necessary
I know that makefiles generated by automake are "creating commands" that are triggered when
uninstall by example, and i'd like to know how to tell makefile.am to call somescript.sh when install is called and to call someOtherscript.sh when uninstall is called to remove what my program installed.
A bit like preinst script in debian packages.
