Subject: gmp2 debian (?) package
X-Mailer: Mutt 0.94.12i
So after hard fight i have my Amiga running Debian GNU/Linux =o))
Now to the subject:
In my work i need to have working ssh. ssh need gmp2 package (i believe it's
the same on RH also). I'v got gmp2_2.0.2-6_powerpc.deb from Polish mirror
(ftp.task.gda.pl). It installed ok. After that i tried to install
ssh-1.2.26-1.2 (this one was dl'ed either from ftp.task.gda.pl or
sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk). Install failed because of unresolved symbol in
libgmp2.so.2 (this symbol was mpn_add_n). At first i blamed this to upgrade
of libc6 but soon i realised that it's gmp2 fault. I downloaded binary
package and tried to recompile. This also failed.
The problem was syntax in asm files in gmp2-2.0.2/mpn/powerpc32. As i don;t
know assembler i took C files from generic and i got working gmp2 package.
I don't know if it is deb fault (badly created) or is this gmp2 fault (this
might as well be some incomatibility in egcs/binutils) What i'm asking is
this: could someone try installing gmp2 and ssh on RH and see if it works ?
(if it's gmp2 it'll fail during generation of server ssh-key). Also someone
else with Debian could try this?
I don't have the time now to inspect gmp to see if it would behave any
different on 604 (there is subdir gmp2-2.0.2/mpn/powerpc64 with quite
