Re: Bug#755105: kadu: no longer builds on kfreebsd-*

The shared library seems to be built fine on kfreebsd,
and the build system gives it a multiarch path.  But dh_install later
looks for it in the wrong place...

debian/kadu//usr/lib/kadu/plugins/ returned exit code 1

This is apparently due to some workaround that was added to debian/rules
but is now not needed.  Please see attached patch fixing this.

KFreebsd-* and linux/usbdevice_fs.h


on KFreebsd-* I have a bug[1] because the source need the
linux/usbdevice_fs.h, which not exist.

Is there a other package that implant the requested functions?

Or any other hint?

Many thanks.

Bug#763126: efl: [kfreebsd] testsuite sometimes fails

Package: efl
Version: 1.8.6-2.1
Severity: important
User: debian-bsd <at>
Usertags: kfreebsd


The efl testsuite fails occasionally, most often on kfreebsd with:

This bug is the same as, apparently
not really fixed.  That was seen on s390, and this has happened
more recently on powerpc too:

I think it it is some kind of Makefile parallelism issue.  Compare
successful case:

Kernel packages in the installer

Hi folks,

I have been talking with Christoph on IRC about the kernel installation
story. Right now there are several kernel packages in the archive. The
installer currently installs kfreebsd-image-$KERNEL_MAJOR-$ARCH
which is e.g. kfreebsd-image-10-amd64 currently with testing. But there
are also the kfreebsd-image-{amd64, 686, 486} packages, which just
depend on the respective major version image package.

It seems possible for the future to make distribution updates easier, if
the installer does not install a major version image packet directly,
but if it installs the meta packet only and via dependency the current
major version image packet is pulled. That obviously does not help with
current installations, but it would prevent a similar problem in the future.

So I propose to change the Debian installer to install the version
agnostic (wonderful word, thanks Christoph) meta-package and let the
dependency resolution pull in the correct kernel image. How is the
general feeling about this?

Best regards,

This was a problem in kfreebsd-kernel-headers fixed long ago.  Built

Please give back consolekit on kfreebsd-*


Please give back consolekit to build on kfreebsd-amd64 and
kfreebsd-i386;  it had a kfreebsd-kernel-headers problem (Bug #753773)
which I think was fixed already in 10.0 userland.  I was able to
build 0.4.6-5 locally.

Re: Bug#728223: dime: FTBFS on kFreeBSD: libtool can't build shared libraries

tags 728223 + patch


The minimal patch below will fix the FTBFS on kfreebsd:

--- configure.orig
+++ configure
 <at>  <at>  -6614,7 +6614,7  <at>  <at> 


Although, really it should be regenerating ./configure as part of the
build.  (That is #727358 I think)

Please give back dime on kfreebsd-*


Please give back dime to build on kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386;  it
had some autotools issues but seems to build okay for me right now.

If it does build, #728223 can be closed, it can migrate and escape
autoremoval.  In any case there is still #727358 open suggesting the use
of dh-autoreconf.
