    RE:Wont run.

    I think you just to run command like this.
    "sh" anything ending in '.sh" is a shell script and you must tell bash to treat it as so.
    Hope that helps ya.

      Only if the script is reallly POSIX compatible on systems like *buntu where sh is no symlink to bash but dash. My scripts are, but not all, some have implicit bash depends like some well known ATI scripts

          Hi Kano
          Your suggestion is correct :-) now I haven't more the previous error.
          But now I have this:
          cico-sail@Cico:~$ apt-get devscripts fakeroot pbuilder
          E: Operazione non valida devscripts (in english can be like: Operation not valid devscripts)
          I need more one more help :-)

            Sorry forgot the "install" statement after apt-get. Just add this.

              Hi Kano, sorry for my forgetfulness :-)
              Ok, now I are on the next step where I run the commands:
              apt-get source xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
              cd xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd*
              sed -i 's/^\(Build-Depends:\).*/\1 debhelper (>= 5), quilt, pkg-config, xserver-xorg-dev (>= 2:1.1), x11proto-video-dev, x11proto-fonts-dev, x11proto-randr-dev (>= 1.1), x11proto-render-dev, automake, autoconf, libtool, xutils-dev, x11proto-xext-dev/' debian/control
              # for use with Debian etch add this (would not hurt anyway)
              sed -i 's#^\(SERVERMINVERS =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/serverminver 2>/dev/null||echo 2:1.1)#;
              s#^\(VIDEOABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/videoabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 1.0)#;
              s#^\(INPUTABI =\).*#\1 $(shell cat /usr/share/xserver-xorg/inputabiver 2>/dev/null||echo 0)#' debian/xsfbs/

              and just here it's all right :-)

              Next with the command:
              cico-sail@Cico:~/xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd-1.1.0$ debuild -S

              I have a lot of messages until this:
              Now signing changes and any dsc files...
              signfile xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd_1.1.0-1.dsc Brice Goglin <>
              gpg: skipped "Brice Goglin <>": la chiave segreta non è disponibile (in english: the secret key isn't available)
              gpg: [stdin]: clearsign failed: la chiave segreta non è disponibile
              debsign: gpg error occurred! Aborting....
              debuild: fatal error at line 1174:
              running debsign failed

              They are necessary other helps :-) tank's

                That's ok, there is a way to skip signing attempts, but it already created the dsc file. I usually just forget about this warning.

                  Hi Kano, this means that have I to execute the next step?
                  Because if I run he:

                  cico-sail@Cico:~/xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd-1.1.0$ sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd

                  I have some messages and finally:
                  Reading state information... Fatto
                  E: Build-Depends dipendenze per xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd non possono essere soddisfatte perché nessuna versione del pacchetto xserver-xorg-dev può soddisfare le richieste di versione
                  I try to translate:
                  "The dependency of xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd cannot be satisfied because no versions of the package xserver-xorg-dev can be satisfy the required version"
