It seems to be a toolchain issue on this architectures: 1.) The 1.2.12-1 package from the archive works fine. If I recompile it with a current toolchain on sid, I the get same behaviour. 2.) Compiling 1.2.14-2 with the lenny toolchain produces working binaries. I had a quick discussion with aurel on irc, which confirms that: > [16:56] <mbiebl> aurel32: around? > [16:56] <aurel32> mbiebl: for a few seconds > [16:56] <mbiebl> need your help with http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=528145 > [16:57] <mbiebl> looks like dbus-daemon is segfaulting on mipsen > [16:57] <mbiebl> a backtrace only shows this > [16:57] <mbiebl> [16:35] <mbiebl> (gdb) run > [16:57] <mbiebl> [16:35] <mbiebl> Starting program: /root/dbus/bus/dbus-daemon > [16:57] <mbiebl> [16:35] <mbiebl> Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. > [16:57] <mbiebl> [16:35] <mbiebl> 0x2aab55e8 in ??

That's why I CCed the debian-release team. There are some important rdeps of dbus, like libgnomevfs2 and gconf2-common. Apparently this leads to build failures for GNOME packages , where dbus is installed as a dependency of those libs. (I'm still puzzled though, why dbus is started at all. I thought the buildds had a policy-rc.d which prevents that). As this will block the successful compilation of GNOME packages on mips(el) I'm asking the release team if I should upload 1.2.14-2+b1 packages for mips(el) which have been built with a lenny toolchain, until aurel had time to properly investigate that (and provide a proper fix).
