Building Ubuntu Packages

Bruce Allen with the Navy Postgraduate School released hashdb 3.0 adding some great improvements for block hashing. My block hunting is mainly done on virtualized Ubuntu so I decided it was time to build a hashdb package. Figured I would document the steps as they could be used for the SANS SIFT, REMnux and many other great Ubuntu distributions too. 

1) Ubuntu 64-bit Server 16.04.1 hashdb Package Requirements

sudo apt-get install git autoconf build-essential libtool swig devscripts dh-make python-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libewf-dev libbz2-dev libtool-bin

2) Download hashdb from GitHub

3) Verify hashdb Version

cat hashdb/ | more

4) Rename hashdb Folder with Version Number

mv hashdb hashdb-3.0.0

5) Enter hashdb Folder

cd hashdb-3.0.0

6) Bootstrap GitHub Download


7) Configure hashdb Package


8) Make hashdb Package with a Valid Email Address for the Maintainer

dh_make -s -e --packagename hashdb –createorig

9) Build hashdb Package

debuild -us -uc
10) Install hashdb

dpkg -i hashdb_3.0.0-1_amd64.deb

Alternatively, if you just wanted to try the new version of hashdb, I have setup a limited hosted package repository at for Ubuntu 64-bit Server 16.04.1.

1) Add hashdb Repository

2)  Install hashdb

sudo apt-get install hashdb
