Bug#209253: FTBS on hppa, possible solutions still pending.
Fails to build from source on hppa, and that's a good thing, if it ever
built it would be disasterous to userspace. We need to add a system by where
debian can list "Allowed failures" during 'make -k check' runs on the
glibc testsuite (next on my todo).
I have, with the help of many others, fixed a large number of our
current regressions. Minor or perhaps major problems still remain in our
librt signal handling functions (usually to do with proper restoring of
our PIC register across signals).
Current analysis of glibc test-suite failures can be seen here:
Patches for upstream CVS are listed in the above email aswell.
I have created a set of debian .dpatch's to apply to 2.3.2-5, but I need
to carry out more testing to see if the signal problems we have are dire
enough that they would wreck userspace. I'll be doing deb builds this
week and asking for chroot testers on lists.parisc-linux.org.
