Re: Bug#961654: buster-pu: package bzip2/1.0.6-9.2~deb10u1
On the other hand, the fix has been known since 2019 and looks like a
prime problem for an LTS newbie volunteer like me.
I have created the fix based on the Debian/bzip2 repo, the fix is in
the debian/buster branch.
git clone http://digon.foursquare.net/debian-buster-bzip2/.git
I have tested it on a 32bit buster, and it works on +2g files.
I do not have privileges to push this to any server yet, so feel free to
tweak the changelog and claim it as your own, whoever wishes to upload it.
