age author description
Sun, 03 Apr 2011 15:08:35 -0500 Rob Landley Add BUILD_NATIVE_ONLY and NO_CLEAN controls to buildall.sh. Also break out the hdb.img creation and do that single threaded for all targets, then reuse the scratch drives. (Avoids triggering timeout.sh due to disk thrashing on large FORK=1 builds.)
Sun, 03 Apr 2011 15:05:11 -0500 Rob Landley Factor out make-hdb.sh from dev-environment.sh.
Sun, 03 Apr 2011 15:03:33 -0500 Rob Landley More typos from Alan Post.
Tue, 22 Mar 2011 06:51:49 -0500 Rob Landley Many typos, spotted by Alan Post.
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 23:20:13 -0500 Rob Landley Switch to from pthreads.old to NPTL.
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 23:19:02 -0500 Rob Landley Update to linux-2.6.38 and uClibc-0.9.32-rc3.
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 23:16:19 -0500 Rob Landley Remove lots of patches (and add one) for uClibc 0.9.32 release candidates.
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 23:02:13 -0500 Rob Landley Switch to the noperl patches for 2.6.38.
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 19:28:50 -0500 Rob Landley Might as well preserve hard links while assembling root-filsystem. Neither busybox tar nor mksquashfs are currently using them, but maybe someday...
Fri, 18 Mar 2011 05:58:35 -0500 Rob Landley If sha1sum isn't installed, download falls back through all the mirrors repeatedly downloading stuff, without explaining why it failed.
Mon, 14 Mar 2011 19:07:38 -0500 Rob Landley Forgot to check in that last news update. Oops.
Mon, 14 Mar 2011 19:06:29 -0500 Rob Landley Update .hgignore
Mon, 14 Mar 2011 18:46:08 -0500 Rob Landley Fix regression: make #!/bin/sh point to bash instead of busybox shell for dev environment. (Oops.)
Wed, 09 Feb 2011 21:06:18 -0600 Rob Landley impactlinux.com is just an alias for landley.net now, remove it from mirror list.
Wed, 09 Feb 2011 21:05:54 -0600 Rob Landley Update config for uClibc 0.9.32-rc2. Which almost works right.
Wed, 09 Feb 2011 20:58:33 -0600 Rob Landley Update busybox, and update uClibc and linux to test versions that should ship soon. Update patches directory to match.
Tue, 08 Feb 2011 12:11:04 -0600 Rob Landley Albert Lee spotted that libnsl went away after 0.9.11 due to the baseconfig stuff dropping a uClibc symbol. Put it back.
Sat, 22 Jan 2011 14:40:00 -0600 Rob Landley Teach ccwrap to switch off -xc after command line sources listed, so cc doesn't try to interpret libc and such as C sources.
Wed, 09 Feb 2011 21:10:04 -0600 Rob Landley Update news and sidebars.
Mon, 10 Jan 2011 08:26:02 -0600 Rob Landley Bring bootraw patch up to 2.6.37 so it doesn't need fuzz factor support to apply (which busybox patch doesn't do, and which is a bad idea anyway because fuzz has the annoying habit of silently applying hunks in the wrong place and introducing _subtle_ bugs).
Sat, 08 Jan 2011 19:58:33 -0600 Rob Landley Update a couple more links.
Sat, 08 Jan 2011 04:29:00 -0600 Rob Landley Missed a path when I renamed native-build to control-images.
Fri, 07 Jan 2011 21:21:34 -0600 Rob Landley 2.6.37 kernel.
Fri, 07 Jan 2011 01:15:01 -0600 Rob Landley Clean up old references to impactlinux.com, add a FAQ explaining why that site went away, and start the long and winding process of redoing documentation.hmtl.
Mon, 03 Jan 2011 02:08:33 -0600 Rob Landley Announce 1.0.1.
Mon, 03 Jan 2011 02:08:13 -0600 Rob Landley Added tag 1.0.1 for changeset a44deb7b4ee0
Wed, 08 Dec 2010 02:42:07 -0600 Rob Landley Busybox 1.18.0 doesn't build on Ubuntu 9.04. This fixes it. 1.0.1
Fri, 03 Dec 2010 21:47:10 -0600 Rob Landley Need -fpic to build a shared libarary.
Fri, 03 Dec 2010 21:21:32 -0600 Rob Landley Update another README.
Fri, 03 Dec 2010 21:20:28 -0600 Rob Landley Update some READMEs.
Fri, 03 Dec 2010 20:18:50 -0600 Rob Landley Fix the includes.
Fri, 03 Dec 2010 00:09:32 -0600 Rob Landley Move clean.sh into more since it isn't a build stage.
Thu, 02 Dec 2010 21:00:47 -0600 Rob Landley Remove debris accidentally checked in.
Thu, 02 Dec 2010 20:59:07 -0600 Rob Landley A nolink build doesn't need the find -L hack.
Thu, 02 Dec 2010 20:57:19 -0600 Rob Landley Backport some uClibc bits so udev will build against 0.9.31.
Thu, 02 Dec 2010 18:17:20 -0600 Rob Landley New busybox release.
Wed, 01 Dec 2010 17:57:46 -0600 Rob Landley Add script.nolink option for packages that really don't like the whole 'tree of symlinks' thing. Migrate vim and remove the -L hack.
Wed, 01 Dec 2010 03:03:18 -0600 Rob Landley Add /sbin to the $PATH in the system image. (Oops.)
Wed, 01 Dec 2010 03:02:34 -0600 Rob Landley Don't delete hdb.img if user specified an $HDB image. (It's caller's responsibility to make sure that the scratch disk is in a usable state.)
Sun, 28 Nov 2010 22:09:12 -0600 Rob Landley Documentation tweak.
Sun, 28 Nov 2010 22:06:08 -0600 Rob Landley Make the module-init-tools build work on a read-only source filesystem.
Tue, 23 Nov 2010 06:43:54 -0600 Rob Landley Killtree momved, update timeout.sh to be able to find it.
Tue, 23 Nov 2010 03:58:41 -0600 Rob Landley Rip out uClibc internationalization (doesn't contain any codepages, just copies 'em from the host, so won't build on a host that hasn't got internationalization already installed), use gettext-stub instead of gettext, and fix udev and vim to build.
Mon, 22 Nov 2010 17:53:17 -0600 Rob Landley Make more of the LFS build actually build.
Mon, 22 Nov 2010 17:32:46 -0600 Rob Landley Handle package tarballs with overlapping names (thingy and thingy-test for example).
Mon, 22 Nov 2010 17:31:51 -0600 Rob Landley Add the sha1sum to the LFS tarball.
Mon, 22 Nov 2010 17:31:12 -0600 Rob Landley Building iproute2 needs the libresolv stub.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 19:45:47 -0600 Rob Landley Documentation on how to use the bootstrap-skeleton infrastructure.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 19:08:01 -0600 Rob Landley Move bootstrap-skeleton/files to bootstrap-skeleton/mnt, to be consistent.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 15:02:47 -0600 Rob Landley Typo, ./configure not /configure
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 15:02:04 -0600 Rob Landley The LFS iproute2 build gets confused because "find -type f" in a directory created with "cp -s" skips symlinks and thus never finds anything. Use sed to add a -L to all those find invocations, to follow symlinks.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 14:23:30 -0600 Rob Landley Fix for gettext's mbuiter.h assert 'iter->cur.wc == 0' failed which I hit in two diffferen tpackage builds and which gentoo hit a year ago here: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=288743
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 14:20:22 -0600 Rob Landley Any attempt to actually _use_ the locale stuff fails dereferencing incomplete types because the guts of the headers (where the actual struct contents are defined) get zapped during install by unifdef on _LIBC guards. Rip the unnecessary #ifdefs out. See thread at http://lists.uclibc.org/pipermail/uclibc/2010-July/044185.html
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 14:14:18 -0600 Rob Landley Unexport ruserpass, a pointless namespace polution that breaks building the ftp program in inetutils.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 14:02:59 -0600 Rob Landley Log stderr as well as stdout.
Sun, 21 Nov 2010 14:02:05 -0600 Rob Landley If the cross compiler supports internationalization, bash tries to stick -lintl into the host compiler, which may not support it. And if you stick a "no" for the question into config.cache it retests. So stick in a "nyet", which isn't a yes (so -lintl isn't added) but doesn't trigger a retest. I hate autoconf.
Wed, 17 Nov 2010 22:09:19 -0600 Rob Landley Add rather a lot of Linux From Scratch 6.7 building infrastructure. Needs a bit more debugging.
Sun, 14 Nov 2010 14:45:01 -0600 Rob Landley Upgrade to new busybox release and tweak it so /bin/sh is hush, not ash.
Sat, 13 Nov 2010 15:43:47 -0600 Rob Landley Rip out the code gratuitously reordering libraries. It serves no purpose other than to break mixed -lblah and ../blah.a compiles that care about order.
Thu, 11 Nov 2010 06:37:04 -0600 Rob Landley Ever-fluffier FAQ.
Thu, 11 Nov 2010 06:36:33 -0600 Rob Landley Second try at a chroot-splice script, combining a root-filesystem and a control image into a chroot directory. (Useful for working out new control images.)
Thu, 11 Nov 2010 04:50:39 -0600 Rob Landley More chipping away at the LFS build. Add basic locale support to uClibc config and hit gettext about the head and shoulders with sed until it compiles despite autoconf still being utterly useless.
Thu, 11 Nov 2010 04:49:16 -0600 Rob Landley Move the manifest tracking from build-one-package to run-build-stages and make it actually work.
Tue, 09 Nov 2010 20:43:04 -0600 Rob Landley Move zapchroot to a slightly less inappropriate place.
Mon, 08 Nov 2010 21:24:58 -0600 Rob Landley Change control image scripts so they always build in build/control-images, and put the extracted and archived (squashfs) versions in the same directory the way the other build scripts do. Also use utility_functions.sh as appropriate.
Mon, 08 Nov 2010 21:07:36 -0600 Rob Landley Mounting a tmpfs on /dev means /dev/pts isn't there, so mkdir it.
Mon, 08 Nov 2010 21:06:29 -0600 Rob Landley Add zapchroot script that unmounts everything under a directory.
Mon, 08 Nov 2010 20:57:35 -0600 Rob Landley Add NFSv3 and devtmpfs to the kernel baseconfig.
Sun, 07 Nov 2010 15:57:32 -0600 Rob Landley Missed a bit of the name change.
Sun, 07 Nov 2010 15:55:26 -0600 Rob Landley Move sources/native-builds to sources/control-images, so the naming is consistent.
Sun, 07 Nov 2010 15:54:37 -0600 Rob Landley When building control images, the working directory should be in build/control-images.
Sun, 07 Nov 2010 13:59:42 -0600 Rob Landley functions.sh no longer includes utility-functions.sh, so adjust includes.
Fri, 05 Nov 2010 01:02:34 -0500 Rob Landley Config tweak to make uClibc work if you install the cross-compiler at /tools and build with CCWRAP_DYNAMIC_LINKER=/tools/lib/ld-uClibc.so.0 exported.
Wed, 03 Nov 2010 13:58:56 -0500 Rob Landley The impactlinux.com domain unexpectedly went away, update the web page on
Sat, 30 Oct 2010 20:49:09 -0500 Rob Landley I can't reliably log into freenode anymore due to their strange mandatory authentication protocol being blocked by multiple ISPs, so I'll yank the reference from the web page.
Sun, 24 Oct 2010 04:17:15 -0500 Rob Landley More tweaks to bootstrap-skeleton, implement the first half of lfs-bootstrap for Linux From Scratch 6.7 against the new infrastructure, and tweak gentoo build to stay current with bootstrap-skeleton changes. (Now more common infrastructure, and requires package-list file.)
Sat, 23 Oct 2010 15:15:29 -0500 Rob Landley Fix uClibc so m4 and bison build against it.
Fri, 22 Oct 2010 18:36:01 -0500 Rob Landley Fix guest account.
Fri, 22 Oct 2010 18:31:51 -0500 Rob Landley Provide a mount point for root user's home directory.
Thu, 21 Oct 2010 19:09:51 -0500 Rob Landley Update squashfs and kernel to current versions.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:59:05 -0500 Rob Landley FAQ tweak.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:58:14 -0500 Rob Landley Teach native-build.sh to pass in the name of the build control image.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:55:46 -0500 Rob Landley Teach build-control-images.sh to call the new subdirectory format builds (with integrated patch directories and file trees and such).
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:54:33 -0500 Rob Landley Replace bisectinate's built-in tests with a test specified on the command line.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:53:23 -0500 Rob Landley Dropbear's scp shouldn't call /usr/bin/dbclient, it should just call ssh out of $PATH.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:52:23 -0500 Rob Landley Redo gentoo-boostrap on top of bootstrap-skeleton.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:50:12 -0500 Rob Landley Update the common code, use "files" directory instead of build for subdir.
Thu, 07 Oct 2010 23:46:30 -0500 Rob Landley Genericize the noversion() regex a bit, and make sure to only apply patches in the sources/patches directory that end in ".patch".
Tue, 05 Oct 2010 21:18:36 -0500 Rob Landley Add generic native-build infastructure.
Mon, 04 Oct 2010 13:59:45 -0500 Rob Landley Start of a new Linux From Scratch build. Currently just extracts and patches the source tarballs.
Wed, 29 Sep 2010 15:18:08 -0500 Rob Landley Tweak uClibc config to add __progname support and debuggable pthreads.
Sat, 25 Sep 2010 14:10:23 -0500 Rob Landley Break out download_functions.sh into their own file.
Sat, 25 Sep 2010 13:40:04 -0500 Rob Landley Refactor the gentoo bootstrap build some more. Add "build" and "files" subdirectories, split each package build into a separate file, break out reusable shell functions into functions.sh. Flow control now init chrooting into run-build-stages.sh calling the individual package scripts.
Fri, 24 Sep 2010 08:36:21 -0500 Rob Landley Shuffle gentoo bootstrapping into a single directory (with files and patches subdirectories under that).
Thu, 16 Sep 2010 19:35:32 -0500 Rob Landley And e2fsprogs needs "--shared", not just "-shared". I'm not sure playing whack-a-mole with --long -> -long option conversion is the best way for the wrapper to approach this, but until somebody explains the logic of which longopts gcc accepts a single dash for and which it doesn't...
Wed, 15 Sep 2010 21:31:16 -0500 Rob Landley Add "file" to the bootstrap packages, and add a package.provided listing stuff that's there already for portage.
Wed, 15 Sep 2010 18:06:30 -0500 Rob Landley Tighten up test.sh usage message.
Wed, 15 Sep 2010 18:06:08 -0500 Rob Landley Mounting /dev/pts is useful.
Sun, 12 Sep 2010 19:21:42 -0500 Rob Landley Strangely, ncurses won't build shared libraries unless explicitly told to do so on the configure command line. (Yes, it's a library package. No, I don't know what they were smoking either.)
Sun, 12 Sep 2010 18:05:42 -0500 Rob Landley Milton Miller pointed out that tar | tar doesn't need gzip. :)
Fri, 10 Sep 2010 12:52:37 -0500 Rob Landley Typo fix for previous commit.
Fri, 10 Sep 2010 12:21:46 -0500 Rob Landley Fix overlay support: copy to original STAGE_DIR (not into usr/) and use tar | tar instead of cp -a (which barfs copying dir/file to a destination where dir symlink).
Wed, 08 Sep 2010 12:56:51 -0500 Rob Landley The header and news disagreed whether the file was "1.0" or "1.0.0", and since a 1.0.1 is inevitable, rename it 1.0.0.
Tue, 07 Sep 2010 03:48:35 -0500 Rob Landley Update the README for the download directory, noting simple-root-filesystem and the move to the "extras" directory.
Mon, 06 Sep 2010 15:14:02 -0500 Rob Landley 1.0 is out, update web page header.
Mon, 06 Sep 2010 00:57:38 -0500 Rob Landley Helps to get the version numbers right in the release message. (It was pending
Sun, 05 Sep 2010 00:47:39 -0500 Rob Landley Added tag 1.0 for changeset 479bcbb2775e
Sun, 05 Sep 2010 00:47:04 -0500 Rob Landley Screw it: cut a release and fix it all up later. 1.0
Sun, 05 Sep 2010 00:08:47 -0500 Rob Landley The point of armv4l is to be OABI, so have the config agree with that.
Sun, 05 Sep 2010 00:04:13 -0500 Rob Landley Smoketest was using the wrong run-emulator-from-build.sh path.
Sun, 05 Sep 2010 00:02:21 -0500 Rob Landley Yet more FAQ massaging.
Sat, 04 Sep 2010 17:55:54 -0500 Rob Landley Revert the kernel commit that broke mips64.
Wed, 01 Sep 2010 00:58:00 -0500 Rob Landley When BUILD_STATIC=all that inclues oneit.
Tue, 31 Aug 2010 18:25:34 -0500 Rob Landley Long overdue upgrade to 2.6.35, I'll fix the architectures this breaks later.
Tue, 31 Aug 2010 18:22:57 -0500 Rob Landley Teach gentoo-stage1.sh that /dev/null means don't create an hdc.
Tue, 24 Aug 2010 03:08:47 -0500 Rob Landley Remove toybox.
Tue, 24 Aug 2010 02:53:11 -0500 Rob Landley Remove RW_SYSTEM_IMAGE option. The gentoo-stage1 build shows how to setup a writeable chroot, and the FAQ says how to build a writeable system image. I'm not shipping two different system iamges, then I'd have to explain it and it's not worth the confusion.
Mon, 23 Aug 2010 12:30:09 -0500 Rob Landley Fix mirror list.
Mon, 23 Aug 2010 12:21:53 -0500 Rob Landley Remove patch that current busybox doesn't need.
Mon, 23 Aug 2010 00:28:41 -0500 Rob Landley Fluff out the debugging section of the FAQ a bit more, explaining EXTRACT_ALL and NO_SANITIZE_ENVIRONMENT.
