Well, I'm working on a kernel-image package based on 2.0.33.
I've just one packaged but I need to fix the postinst script (from
kernel-package 3.53) to support SILO instead of LILO.
I'm also working on new bootdisks but some packages/files are missing.
Especially there is no fdisk. Anyone want to package fdisk for sparc ?
(consider getting fdisk-2.5-1.src.rpm from RedHat).
Yesterday I packaged ash, cpio & util-linux Some of them were already
The following packages also need to move to libc6 before making bootdisks:
I've worked on procps but I cannot release it before making binutils to work.
I'm succeeded in compiling binutils 184.108.40.206.19 but shared library name is
somewhat non conventional:
libbfd-220.127.116.11.19.so.0.0.0 with SONAME libbfd-18.104.22.168.19.so.0
instead of libbfd.so.22.214.171.124.19 I hoped to see.
Some of us have worked on perl with partial success. It don't pass all the
tests from the test suite and cannot load perl modules without LD_BIND_NOW env
variable set to 1 :-(
