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.
