Dear Debian-Devel, we need your advices. Yesterday, we (the qt-kde packagers) uploaded qt3 version 3.3.8b. The biggest differences over 3.3.7 is that it is now also gplv3 licensed. And then this bug report came: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=465028 - libqt3-mt: Missing weak symbols for stat64 functions basically, in qt3 3:3.3.7-9 and earlier, libqt3-mt seems to provide some symbols: $ objdump -T libqt-mt.so.3 | grep stat64 004d2d9e w DF .text 00000032 Base stat64 002f19de w DF .text 00000032 Base fstat64 005dcba0 w DF .text 00000032 Base lstat64 These symbols are also provided by the etch package of libqt3-mt. With this newly built qt3 3.3.8b, these symbols is no longer provided. A newly rebuilt version of 3:3.3.7-9 is also not providing these symbols, which kind of makes it looks like a toolchain issue. Some packages expects these symbols (gwenview, ktorrent, virtualbox-ose and probably many others) The question is simply: How to proceed? Do it like ubuntu did and just binNMU the packages expecting these symbols? Locate the packages expecting these symbols and have a gigantic Conflicts: line? Kick in a major transition and rename libqt3-mt and rebuild all rdpendencies Isolate the toolchain change and revert it? something else? I am not in favour of just binNMUing everything, as we breaks partial upgrades I am also not in favour of the big mess it would be to package-namechange qt3 And I don't know if other packages are affected by the same toolchain change ? Any advice is most appreciated. /Sune -- I cannot cancel a GPU, how does it work? You must ping a connection on the fan of the Ultra 3D tower for inserting in the controller on the forward.
