sysvinit_2.76-2 uploaded, should work out of the box for Alpha
I just uploaded sysvinit_2.76-2 to frozen and unstable. Besides fixing
the "init u" bug (which was in -1) I removed the debian/shlibs.local
file so that there isn't a dependency on libc6 anymore. This mean the
unmodified package will compile, install and run cleanly on the Alpha
as would be expected.
I realized I could do this since it depended on libc6 (>= 2.0.5) which
was a development version when hamm was unstable. Everybody now runs
either no libc6 (bo) or libc6_2.0.7t (hamm). Also all packages compiled
with the libc6 from slink on i386 depend on libc (>= 2.0.7u) anyway
since the shlibs file from libc6 forces that.
Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
