Re: New ARM elfloader patch

Okay, I give up. I've tried several times to build this package, and each time it's failed, because of something having nothing to do with the package itself. I got some patches together, and after a couple of early mistakes they've built just fine -- and work with -7 too. But at some point, during unpacking or during dh_makeshlibs or anywhere in between, the following happens:

nfs: server not responding, still trying

(I don't have enough disk space on my Netwinder to hold the entire build tree.) I can't seem to get out of this, can't unmount the remote directories, can't kill the processes which are keeping it busy, even have trouble rebooting sometimes.

If I try to "debian/rules build" after it fails in the middle, it seems to do a "make clean" or something similar which removes all of the previously-built libraries and object files. So the previous progress is lost.

So, could someone else please take my patches and build and upload X for us? They're at:


Unpack the X source, then put all of these in debian/patches, and remove 310_arm_compiler_h.diff from that directory. It should build, and if all goes well, it may even work!

The first two are based on the previous 310_arm_compiler_h.diff and 600 and 600a from debian/held-patches. No rocket science here, I just had to tweak it a bit to use the inx/outx prototypes from libc, specifically sys/io.h. The last two differ from what's there now only in line numbers so their compiler.h hunks are applied without offset.
