= Testing Status =

 * linux-2.6 on supported subarchs is an rc requirement.
 * [http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2005/10/msg00079.html Ignored] for testing
 * Need to lower the dep-wait and failed to something reasonable.
 * Need to investigate not-for-us and list those that apply in Packages-arch-specific.
 * [http://buildd.debian.org/~jeroen/status/architecture.php?a=m68k status] towards those goals.

Bugs

  • Tracking the numerous gcc bugs at ?DebianM68kGcc.

  • mathinline is glibc (libc6-dev), 4.0.2-3 (20051109)
    • debian #340871 on libc6-dev (trivial case in report)
    • > /usr/include/bits/mathinline.h:128: error: declaration of 'double atan(double)' throws different exceptions

    • workaround: drop to less than -O1 or drop -pedantic (so USE_EXTERN_INLINES doesn't get defined)

    • pkgs: slgsl_0.5.2-1, php4-vpopmail_4.3.4-5.4.4+2, libgig_2.0.d2-1, highlight_2.4.2-1, blackbox_0.70.0-5, darkice_0.16-1

Need Investigation and Bugs Filed

  • gerris_0.6.0-2: m68k, `_FPU_MASK_ZM'
  • pnet_0.6.12-5: m68k, segfaults
  • vtk_4.4.2-8: m68k, throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'

xargs (dh_fixperms)

  • Looks something like

  • The offending command in dh_fixperms is find debian/caudium -print0 2>/dev/null | xargs -0r chown --no-dereference 0:0, with xargs being the culprit

  • Packages known to fail: libcommoncpp2_1.3.19-1, caudium_2:1.4.7-5, mozilla_2:1.7.11-1, openssl097_0.9.7g-4, exiv2_0.7-9.1, pike7.6_7.6.53-1, tex4ht_20051130-1, craft_3.5-11, log4cxx_0.9.7-3+b1
