Yeah, http://bugs.debian.org/85715 . Pretty involved, and
unfortunately, most of the posts on it went directly between myself and
Joost Witteveen, the author, without ccing the bug. I had to give him
an account on a Netwinder.
D'oh! I was trying to build under 2.2.19, which is known to cause
problems with fakeroot.
I didn't know that. Does anybody know what's actually wrong with it? I've
actually just switched the default install kernel for woody back to 2.2.19
from 2.4.5 because the latter didn't seem especially stable either.
I'll have a go at building a 2.4.9 or so and see if that's any better.
Oh wait, I seem to have it backwards, it worked under 2.2.13 but not
2.3.99-pre8. But I've been able to build packages just fine with more
I'm afraid I don't have too much time to try it under multiple kernels,
so someone else will have to investigate. If 2.4.5 makes X build (won't
know until tomorrow morning), I'll report that.
