Etch-m68k Status

  • m68k didn't release with debian stable, but rather has it's own semi-supported, semi-released distribution called etch-m68k.
  • A wanna-build for security or proposed-updates type support for etch-m68k has been created, but the autobuilders are currently focused on catching up with unstable distribution. Once m68k is caught up with unstable, cronos and diablos at nemesisnetworks.com are scheduled to begin building both.
  • The good news is that everything works, and we have an upgrade path for the future.

time-stamp skew

  • A missing automake build-dep may instead be time-stamp skew.
  • Search for skew in /usr/share/doc/autotools-dev/README.Debian.gz

binNMU notes

  • example to register dpkg_1.13.11 for a dpkg_1.13.11+b1 binNMU:

wanna-build -b m68k/build-db -d unstable -m "Rebuild with g++-4.0 for C++ +transition." --binNMU=1 dpkg_1.13.11

  • --binNMU=2 for second binNMU.
  • example to deregister any pending binNMU and return to Installed state:

wanna-build -b m68k/build-db -d unstable --binNMU=0 dpkg_1.13.11

Build Priority Notes

  • example usage to set one-time higher build-priority

wanna-build -b i386/build-db -d unstable --build-priority=1 xorg-x11_6.8.2.dfsg.1-7

  • example usage to set one-time lower build-priority

wanna-build -b i386/build-db -d unstable --build-priority=-1 xorg-x11_6.8.2.dfsg.1-7

  • For permanent build priorities, use --perm-build-priority instead of --build-priority

Not-For-Us Notes

  • to remove something from the not-for-us list, use --forget.
  • to move it from n-f-u to nb, use --forget, -o --take, --give-back.
  • apparently you can also just do wb -n again (it toggles)
