Re: Debconf and other outdated packages
I've finally installed X's -dev-10 packages from pure64 (remember I'm
using gcc-3.4 for everything else) and wxwidgets2.5 compiles perfectly
with gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 20050203 (prerelease) (Debian 3.4.3-22.214.171.124.gcc4)
using apt-source wxwidgets2.5 install/build. I guess the gcc that was
used at the time in Aliath was buggy.
Well, to be honest, I didn't have the 1GB+ of disk space necessary to
build the full package, but Alioth didn't get past the configure stage.
How do I reproduce a run of the builder in my computer so I can attempt
to spot the problem?
Thanks for all,

Is it possible that some packages are still missing? For instance the X

When I upgraded pure64 to gcc-3.4 I had to leave the -10 packages
installed because they have some important fixes. Today I was trying to
find out why wxwidgets2.5's compilation is failing (see below), but I
couldn't readily install the -dev packages I need to compile it because
I don't have the X's -dev packages corresponding to the binaries I've
installed. Maybe I should also install X's -dev packages from pure64 for
On a second look to wxwidgets2.5 compilation's log in
gcc-3.4/buildd-logs it looks like it's downloading the build
dependencies from pure64, as it's actually fetching the -10-dev X
packages. Anyway, in case somebody knows before hand about this problem,
the error message is:
checking for strcasecmp() in string.h... no

I have compiled the X -10 version but when I installed it on my own
workstation, something went wrong and I could not start X anymore.
Because of this, I did not yet upload the new version. In the meantime
I found that the 'bdftopcf' binary in my -10 version does not work
properly and consequently X does not find some necessary fonts on
I will upload -10 as soon as I have fixed this.
Thanks again for the report.
