From what I understood, the current ld.so breakage is not worth a new upload in Ben Collins' opinion. And this is driving me crazy. This bug has been present for over a month now.

Would somebody care making a new version of the libc6 with the patch here:

I have tried to do the compilation myself, but it fails some tests, and craps out (I'm probably using the wrong compiler version or something). I attached the patch I added to debian/patches (I also modified the 0list file in the same directory).

I hope someone can help, and I apologise in advance if mozilla is to send this mail in HTML

I'll try to talk Ben into a new upload.  In fact, he seems to have
already been talked into it.

He might have seen me yelling and kicking yesterday evening on #debian-devel. glibc is definitely not something you want broken...

Well, I reckon you don't need the .dpatch file that I forgot to attach to my previous email then ;)

BTW, could you explain to us what this problem is exactly about, and what needs to be done to other software (like Michael asked about X) ?

Thanks a lot for taking care of that.
