Re: Why wouldn't gcc release build on Alpha ?


Thanks for the tip from Jean-Paul, I finally managed to get
rid of perl5.6 errors - "apt-get -f install perl-5.6-*" did it for me.
[Thinking about it, perhaps I need to subscribe to some other
Debian lists, not only alpha, to stay tuned with such kind of

Back to my g++ build - stage of getting glibc build.

"apt-get -b source glibc" finishes with:

rm -f debian/files debian/substvars log-*
rm -f unpacked-source patched-source patched-sourceT -r patched
rm -f `find debian -name 'libc*' -type l`
rm -f `find debian -name '*~' -o -name '#*#'`
test -d alpha-linux && rm -rf alpha-linux
 debian/rules build DEB_BUILD_ARCH=alpha DEB_BUILD_GNU_CPU=alpha DEB_BUILD_GNU_S

Could someone share their experience, apart from noting that I need
kernel headers and bzcat, will I need anything else to complete the build ?

Many thanks to Jean-Paul again !
