glibc 2 for Debian/SPARC
I read that Debian 2.0 will be based on glibc 2. I'm happy to participate
in this project for SPARC stuff. Debian/SPARC is not fully usable nowadays.
It contains only a network bootstrap method slightly buggy (but usable I hope)
and a very small set of packages.
Instead of compiling other packages against libc5, I think it could be better
to build & upload libc6 before. So I'm trying to package it for Debian/SPARC.
Actually I should use a development release of glibc because the public one
(2.0.3) doesn't include support for SparcLINUX.
So I would want to know how to proceed:
- when my libc6 for Sparc will be ready, should I try to merge changes to
current Debian glibc sources, or just upload binary packages and wait for
an official release that support SparcLINUX?
- which gcc release should be used to build programs for libc6? (gcc 18.104.22.168?)
- which packages should absolutely be rebuilt to provide a basic development
system based on libc6?
I would also want to know a bit more about libc6:
- which dynamic loader is used to run binaries? I saw that libc6 provides its
own loader, named ld-linux.so.2. The latest ldso package says it works with
libc6 but provides ld-linux.so.1. So, is ldso package still needed?
Thanks in advance.
