patch for arm link failure & MANIFEST problem
The problem with the link failure for arm is as follow:
in the chips driver there seems to be code which is for arm32 and
for NetBSD. somehow the person who wrote this just added a define
fro arm32, but not to check for __NetBSD__. furthermore the
actual include which provides function (sysarch) that was missing
was commented out. maybe someone tried something and commented it
out, or whatever, who knows?
the reason why I assume it's __NetBSD__-ish is, that in other
places this <machine/sysarch.h> include was within a __NetBSD__
define, so it's most likely that the same applies here.
anyway, with the great help of Michel Daenzer I created a patch
and it seems to fix it so far, it linked without any errors. what
it does is simply to add a defined(__NetBSD__) to the #if which includes
the include statement for sysarch.h and otherwise just an empty
patch attached. you can change the name/number of the patch to
your likeing, i am not really creative when it comes to give it
sound names ;).
furthermore, the arm .debs for X 4.2.1 are in
~othmar/public_html/xfree86_4.2.1-0pre1v2 on gluck if
you want to use them for your X task force. or will be there
ok, as it turns out another problem arose, the MANIFEST changed,
nv was added and libafb.a was removed. i read the README but
well, won't actually apply to me probably, because it probably
just that a new driver was added and libafb.a was removed
(whatever that is). so i assume the debhelper ocmmands aren't affected
by that, no?
i have attached the diff of the MANIFEST.arm which just showed up
while buidling the debian packages. hope it's ok.
btw. is it ok that there were quite many debconf-mergetemplate
messages, dropping things? or whole templates dropped, etc?
