Netatalk with Debian or Ubuntu

By default, it is compiled without SSL support. Mac clients will not be able to connect. Here is how you get Netatalk working on Debian or Ubuntu the clean way, with custom compiled packages.
[bash]
apt-get source netatalk
apt-get install devscripts fakeroot libssl-dev cracklib2-dev
apt-get build-dep netatalk
cd netatalk-2.0.3
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=ssl debuild
dpkg -i ../netatalk*.deb
[/bash]

If you get an error message about keysigning (when building), this command may help:

[bash]
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=ssl dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
[/bash]
