Re: Automatic compilation: results


Do you have all the development packages installed?  I found several
packages in your list that I managed to build without changing anything.
Anyway, I'll be glad to have a look at the output of the build process for
some packages (marked below) to figure out what's wrong with them.

I would add c) some packages on master contain (reported) bugfixes which
may not be incorporated yet in the source package.  However, I don't
think it will cause any harm if you upload those packages that do not
present on master at all.

OK, can I have the following, please:

(this guy was reported twice for some reason)

Some general comments.

1. tcl and tk packages must be built in a certain sequence (I don't
remember which), and the unpacked and built tree of the first package
must be available when the second package is being built.  (I hope
your script can handle this.)

2.  These packages are irrelevant for Alpha:

> /home/Debian/funet-mirror/hamm/hamm/source/oldlibs/libg++27_2.7.2.1-14.dsc

Should a bug against their architecture specification be reported?

3.  The menu package

> /home/Debian/funet-mirror/hamm/hamm/source/admin/menu_1.5-5.dsc

cannot be compiled by gcc on Alpha.  Egcs is required, so we may relax
with this for a while (there should be a hand-built menu binary on master).
