I packaged util-linux-2.71 and have put it up for general testing on my
It took ALOT of patching and I had to re-correct fdisk, but it appears to
work (all the binaries run, at least).
Aside from epoch support and the change from clock to hwclock (as noted by
Nikita), util-linux 2.7.1 adds quite a few great things. Most notably, it
now includes a fully functional 'more' binary. Other additions include
sfdisk, a command-line (and script-usable) version of fdisk (which, btw,
does NOT have unaligned trap warnings), banner (kinda fun for printing
banners on continuous-feed line printers), and some other niceties that
weren't in the older util-linux. Also, sync was NOT Alpha-functional, so
I patched it based on the RedHat patches (I modified them for more "decent
and straightforward execution" coding).
I have put the kernel patches needed for hwclock support in with the
util-linux package, btw. I am probably going to patch sysvinit tonight
per Nikita's instructions, so expect that too (I'll post separately about
that when it's done). If I don't get to it, you may wish to hold off on
upgrading util-linux to 2.7.1 unless you intend to make the changes by
hand (they're simple and outlined in a message posted earlier by Nikita).
Anyway, enjoy :) I'm glad to be back in the fray :)
