I have couple of MPD instances/hosts in satellite mode in my home network. I would like to compile and build the newest version of MPD and install it on Debian hosts. I thought that I could install the build environment (only on one instance), build mpd...deb package and install on others hosts.
Normally there is checkinstall tool which allow .deb package building.
Can I use checkinstall to build mpd deb package? Standard using of checkinstall comprise configure/make checkinstall but in the newest mpd we use meson/ninja. So how could I build deb package?
