Introduction to Ermine packaging

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • How do I compile a static binary?

  • Can I force static linking of shared libraries?

  • How can I statically link an existing Linux executable?

  • Can I convert a shared libray to a static library?

If the answer is yes, then the question you are actually asking is: How can I make my Linux executable portable?

This book describes creating portable Linux executables using Ermine.
