How do I get the source to the X server or other software modified by ADS? How would I go about building it from source?
To get the sources used by ADS, you need to have our apt repository in /etc/apt/sources.list: deb-src ../developers/linux/debian ads
These commands illistrate a way to download the source to the X server shipped by ADS, build it, and install the resulting package. These commands can be run on an ADS system that is running the full Debian distribution.
apt-get update apt-get source xserver-tinyx-fbdev apt-get build-dep xserver-tinyx-fbdev cd xserver-tinyx-fbdev-* # make any modifications you want to the code here dpkg-buildpackage dpkg -i ../xserver-tinyx-fbdev_*.deb
To get the sources to other packages, replace xserver-tinyx-fbdev with the package name.
If you don't know the package name, but want to get the source to a given program or other file on the system, you can use the command "dpkg -S filename" to find the package that contains the file. For example:
