I have two problems here...
`dbootstrap' doesn't build if I run `make clean' then `make release'
or `make build' at the top of boot-floppies. If I cd into
"utilities/dbootstrap", and run `make' there, it almost builds fine
-- I have to cd into lang and make C.trm by hand -- and after that,
the `make build' at the top of the project runs to completion. It
looks like the reason it fails is that the `dbootstrapg' is trying to
build, but cannot find libbogl, because that's not built.
The second problem is that the C library on the root.bin is not just
the full C library, but actually larger than my /lib/libc.so.* is.
It's supposed to be a subset of libc, but is larger than libc. I
found that in the root.bin that Adam made, it's really a subset. I
don't know what causes this... I just now upgraded the libc6-pic
package, so maybe that will cure it. I'll see later on.
I will investigate these two problems later this afternoon or
evening. I'm off to run errands and job hunt today.
