Mgetty not in Woody / Where is Phil Hands
After not receiving any notice from Phil Hands for 220 days I ask if
any developer could upload a new version of mgetty.
It would be disappointing if mgetty is not distributed in the next
I tried to apply the diff from last debianized mgetty (1.1.21) to the
most recent (1.1.26). Only 4 short reject files. Seems to be no huge
problem. The hole thing compiled within 2 min (i386 /1Ghz).
2 small cavats while dpkg-buildpackage:
1.) The orig-tar-sources are little broken, it contains
mgetty-1.1.26/samples/new_fax.mime3 twice, however this can happen.
2.) the faq is now provided as sgml insted of ascii.
latest upstream can be found at
my latest try/success at http://hiwiv513.rz.uni-konstanz.de/~jeff/mgetty
