This package is already in the archive, and I have DM upload rights for
A few days ago I noticed this package doesn't work on non 32bits
architectures so I've done a few changes to the package.
The relevant part of changelog of the next upload is:
* debian/test.sh: add a simple test suite to be run at the build target
* debian/control: Build-Depend on gcc-multilib
+ Not building 64bits bins as the code is designed for 32bits archs
The changes I made, as suggested by Goswin von Brederlow, until I get it
work on non 32bits archs were:
adding a Build-Depends: gcc-multilib [amd64 kfreebsd-amd64 ppc64]
calling gcc with -m32
So before I upload the package I'd like some feedback on the subject.
Note: I added the simple test suite just to make sure the compiled
are ok, and prevent any similar problem (not knowing it doesn't work under
non-32) in the future.
2nd note: the package is still Arch: any, as suggested by Goswin.
I am not a DD or DM, nor have I checked your actual packaging, but your
explanations of the changes made sound reasonable sane. Obviously it would
be nice for true 64 bit versions to eventually be built, but those changes
sound like they should result in working 32 bit executables for all
architectures. (Warning: I have no actual experence with that, this is just
merely a comment that what you said sounds sane).
