Re: New packages, /dev/dsp


Okay, I've built a whole mess of stuff, and will put it up soon.  Enlightenment
requires freetype, and fnlib, and libghttp, and enlightenment-conf requires
libcapplet from gnome-control-center- hence gnome-libs and gnome-core, which
require orbit and libgtop, and libgtk+1.2, etc.  So my machine has been busy, and I
have too- there are all kinds of little errors in the source packages. :-)

E seems to work, but everything GNOME has a dynamic linker problem:

BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: ../sysdeps/arm/dl-machine.h: 450: elf_machine_rel:
Assertion `! "unexpected dynamic reloc type"' failed!

Is this familiar to anyone?  Maybe a gmodule problem?  I'm giving up for the day,
probably for the week.

The other remaining mystery is qthreads, which is supposed to be part of guile1.3,
but is missing.  In fact, in debian/rules there was a line to move it for
installation, but libqthreads.so.0.0.0 wasn't there.  I guess it wasn't built!
gnome-guile configure looks for it and doesn't find it, as does libgtop, but both
go on anyway.  I suspect it affects some other dependencies as well.

This may cause some people some problems in using these packages.  If so, please
build guile1.3 from scratch, and see if you can get it to make libqthreads.

Also, there's a bug in libgtkxmhtml: the .la file it installs in /usr/lib needs an
extra dependency lib: -lXpm.  If you try to build something and get missing Xpm
symbols in this lib, try editing the .la file and adding this, then you will
probably have to rebuild your makefiles, etc.

For the packages that work, there's a catch...  For various reasons (political and
otherwise), I can't run services on this machine (the netwinder) except sshd.
Therefore, I need a working ssh to get the packages out of the netwinder and onto
the web server.  Therefore, I need a libgmp2 which works and is recent enough to
satisfy the ssh dependencies (I think 2.0.2-1.2 or later).

Has anyone had any success completing the build of gmp?  As I recall that thread
ended inconclusively.

So, mostly-functional packages for the taking if gmp can be made to work...

Until next time,

-Adam P.
