Questions on libc5 for new architecture (arm)
Two questions, both related to an upload of 'libcompface' for ARM.
- I have built some packages for the ARM architecture, and usually
they are installed the day after I have uploaded them to master.
One particular package has not been installed after 2-3 days.
I re-did the upload yesterday just to be sure I had gotten all
files with it. I also checked in the Incoming directory. It's
all still sitting there. Another package I uploaded after I
re-uploaded this one is already installed.
Should I assume something is wrong with the package? Would I have
heard from someone about it? (Similar to the INSTALLED
- The 'debian-arm' distribution never had libc5; libc6 is the first
libc available for it. The 'rules' file for libcompface builds
both a libc5 and libc6 version. I did a binary-only build, but
"faked" the libc5 portion, then removed the resulting binaries
libcompface*.changes file, before doing the 'dupload'.
(This may be a clue to why it was not installed, perhaps?)
I noticed someone else had done the same for the 'alpha'
architecture. Is it "acceptable" practise? Or should I do
a port-specific condition in the 'rules' file to exclude
libc5 builds for this architecture, then file a bug report to
the source maintainer?
