Bug#599565: Hurd's storeio depends on libparted / libuuid



Package: crosshurd
Version: 1.7.41

Hello!

Yeah, I know I should be using the new debian-installer thingy :-), but I
wanted to get flubber going, easily, using my existing machinery, so
there.

It took me some minutes to figure this out...  ;-)

    [...]

    /dev/hd1: Translator died
    # showtrans /dev/hd1
    /hurd/storeio hd1
    # mkswap.linux -v1 /dev/hd1
    /dev/hd1: Translator died
    # devprobe hd1
    hd1 count 1
    close, hd1 count 0
    hd1

    mke2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
    Could not stat /dev/hd1 --- Unknown code P 101
    # ls -l /dev/hd1
    ls: cannot access /dev/hd1: Translator died
    # /hurd/storeio --help
    /hurd/storeio: error while loading shared libraries: libparted.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Aha!

Or should this rather be done automatically?  Preferably; but how?


And yet, there is another obstacle: libuuid is automatically extracted,
libparted is not.  The extract logic in
/usr/share/crosshurd/makehurddir.sh won't consider it, as it is
``Priority: optional'' (libuuid is ``required''), so we need a special
clause.

(FWIW, it's already known that stderr of passive translators (sometimes?)
disappears into some nirvana.)
