compiler issues and some booboos
Just installed Debian Sparc on my ultra1 and upgraded to tater. I
have run into some problems which I cannot find any solutions to:
1. fdisk is missing from tater. It is not in the sparc version of
util-linux, and there does appear to be a "fdisk" package like
there was in slink.
2. grep is failing with messages like:
grep: guile-core_1.3.4-0.diff.gz: Bad address
grep: guile-core_1.3.4-0.dsc: Bad address
grep: guile-core_1.3.4-0_sparc.changes: Bad address
grep: guile-core_1.3.4.orig.tar.gz: Bad address
grep: guile1.3_1.3.4-0_sparc.deb: Bad address
grep: libguile6-dev_1.3.4-0_sparc.deb: Bad address
grep: libguile6-slib_1.3.4-0_sparc.deb: Bad address
grep: libguile6_1.3.4-0_sparc.deb: Bad address
making grep useless. I tried recompiling from source but it made no
difference at all.
3. egcs64 appears busted (any configure scripts claim that it cannot
build excutables. Also, when isntalling it apt-get wanted to
remove gcc and other thigns, even tho "dpkg -s egcs64" does not
show them as conflicting. The resilt is that I have no
recognizable gcc, because /usr/bin/gcc goes out with the gcc
package and egcs64 does not make that link again. I'm totally
stymied on this and just need a heads-up on what the status of the
tool-chain is. I'm not sure if I was just using it for the wrong
thing, or if it's a real bug.
There are lots of toher little things, but I aint here to complain,
I'm here to help, just need some "orientation" here. Overall, most of
the stuff is working.
