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.
