Debian and Ubuntu packages for sbsigntools and efitools built

I got a lot of complaints about the lack of Debian or Ubuntu packages.  Apparently alien doesn’t work all that well, and some of the packages (like libc) are too new anyway on openSUSE.  So I finally figured out how to get OBS to build debian packages.  You can find them here:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jejb1:/UEFI/

I should note that don’t have an Ubuntu system, so the Ubuntu debs are untested.  The Debian packages work on my wheezy and testing systems.  In spite of the directory name, I severely doubt they’ll work properly on Debian 6.0: the openssl on that platform is too old, so I had to construct a special one just to get it to build.

If you want to keep them up to date, add this line to /etc/apt/sources

deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jejb1:/UEFI/Debian_6.0/ ./

And also add the repository key with apt-key add

    Thanks, James. I’m hoping to spend some time on Secure Boot support in Debian after wheezy is out, though if other people get there before me I won’t complain.
