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.
