iPhone .deb App installation Problem
I am into a very strange problem. I have developed an app for myself, which has following three files
When i copy each file into specific folder using ssh , my app works perfect.
* MyApp.app into /Applications
* MyAppDaemon.app into /private/var/mobile/
* LaunchDaemon.plist into /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
App works great if i ssh using cyberduck and puts each file in above specified folders.
Now the problem is when i try to pack the files in .deb file and then transfer to iPhone and then using Terminal i install it [dpkg -i MyApp.deb] the files get copied fine in the folders i specified earlier but my app doesnt work. I have checked all the permissions, still not working.
Its kinda strange, everything is done in the same way as i do using ssh but in case of .deb file its not working, however it works great if i copy the files individually
Any Advice on this??
Have you checked the file ownership (not just permissions?)

Files are properly copied to their respective folders and permissions are fine too. As far as ownership is concerned, that is also fine, as i checked them quite sometimes now.
Stuck in middle of no where
