New glibc2.2 packages and patches
after I succeded in setting up a build environment (binutils-20001213,
gcc-20001211 with libstdc++v2) for glibc2.2 on my Indy I managed to
build my first packages.
I uploaded shellutils and ncurses which were both missing in the
So, what is the normal procedure when uploading with some
- Send the patches to the packages maintainer (?)
I don't know if this is not to early, since we are using different
binutils and gcc.
- Using the same version number as main package or a NMU number (?)
- Diff uploads (?) There is no support for this in the archive
The two packages I uploaded are have the normal version number and are
signed by me, but I had to do some patching. I uploaded them because
they are needed by other packages.
I also tried to compile apt. I had to do some changes in the c++
source code, because some standards changed (eg friend -> friend class)
But apt-get crashes with a segmentation fault.
I am now trying to build gdb-5 with the patches from ftp.linux.sgi.com
to find the problem in apt.
