Re: New ARM elfloader patch
Okay, I give up. I've tried several times to build this package, and
each time it's failed, because of something having nothing to do with
the package itself. I got some patches together, and after a couple of
early mistakes they've built just fine -- and work with -7 too. But at
some point, during unpacking or during dh_makeshlibs or anywhere in
between, the following happens:
nfs: server not responding, still trying
(I don't have enough disk space on my Netwinder to hold the entire build
tree.) I can't seem to get out of this, can't unmount the remote
directories, can't kill the processes which are keeping it busy, even
have trouble rebooting sometimes.
If I try to "debian/rules build" after it fails in the middle, it seems
to do a "make clean" or something similar which removes all of the
previously-built libraries and object files. So the previous progress
So, could someone else please take my patches and build and upload X for
us? They're at:
Unpack the X source, then put all of these in debian/patches, and remove
310_arm_compiler_h.diff from that directory. It should build, and if
all goes well, it may even work!
The first two are based on the previous 310_arm_compiler_h.diff and 600
and 600a from debian/held-patches. No rocket science here, I just had
to tweak it a bit to use the inx/outx prototypes from libc, specifically
sys/io.h. The last two differ from what's there now only in line
numbers so their compiler.h hunks are applied without offset.
