Firefox sed nitpick

Hi,

As the subject says, this is really just a nitpick - just sharing an
opinion in case anyone else feels the same.

The sed for Firefox in BLFS SVN could be tuned down a little. IMHO, the
spaces make it difficult to see clearly what's going on there. In fact
the first set of four spaces aren't necessary to find the string. I
understand the desire to keep the indendation on the newly inserted line
and so the second set of 4 spaces isn't so bothersome, however, they're
not really necessary, either.

The sed could be chopped down to:

sed -i 's|="$moz"|&\n run_moz="$dist_bin/mozilla.sh"|' \
browser/app/mozilla.in

possibly even smaller.

As best as I can tell, this will not work. Or, perhaps I should
rephrase, the sed above will not achieve the desired results that
were intended.

Indeed. Sorry for that. At first glance, the obvious error is that I
included an extra quote, ie:

sed -i 's|="$moz|&\n run_moz="$dist_bin/mozilla.sh|' \
browser/app/mozilla.in

But that won't quite work either as the '&' replaces the found line with
the search parameter. The following sed should produce the desired results:

sed -i 's|dist_bin="$moz_libdir"|&\n run_moz="$dist_bin/mozilla.sh|' \
browser/app/mozilla.in

To me, that's some improvement over the original sed, but not a great deal...

TeX-3.0 problems

Hi all,

I'd like to propose some changes to the TeX-3.0 instructions. Some
to fix brokenness, others for learning advantages to the builder and
one because I just feel it is the "right thing".

1) The following two commands don't work as they should:

TEXMFVAR=/usr/share/texmf-var texconfig dvips paper letter &&
TEXMFVAR=/usr/share/texmf-var texconfig font rw

Problem is two things. Passing the envar doesn't help, and it is
using the wrong command anyway. Removing passing the envar and changing
the commands to 'texconfig-sys' instead of 'texconfig' achieves the
desired result of updating the system-wide TeX configuration and
not creating a private TeX configuration directory.

2) I would like to change the following command:

FONTDIR=/usr/share/texmf/ &&

to

FONTDIR=$(kpsewhich --expand-var '$TEXMFMAIN') &&

Two benefits: one, it is using TeX commands to find out where the
installation is (learning advantage) and two, if someone changed
the installation prefix, the command still works.

3) The following command is broken:

WvStreams-4.0.1 Build Dependencies

First the prerequisits:  I tried this on a bare LFS-6.0 build,
chrooted in from a FC3 host

I have tried to build WvStreams-4.0.1 using the instructions in BLFS
Book-6.1, however the requirements to build wvstreams is incorrect.
./configure fails if pkg-config is not installed, and make fails if
Linux-PAM is not installed.
  I installed pkg-config to stisfy the configure dependency, and I got
Make to sucessfully compile wvstreams by doing a convoluted delete/sed
prior to running make.  This is how I got make to work:

	rm -v streams/wvpam.cc
	rm -v uniconf/daemon/uniconfpamconn.cc
	sed -i -e 66d -e 65d -e 64d -e 63d -e 11d \
		uniconf/daemon/uniconfdaemon.cc

  If I am wrong, please let me know.  I haven't tested wvstreams yet,
so I do not know if the binary works correctly without pam installed.
(I am having issues with ltmodem not correctly regestering itself in
/dev.)

Heimdal overwrites

Hi all,

As has been reported, Heimdal overwrites some files that exist on
the system during its installation. Many binaries are overwritten,
but that is expected and normal.

However, there are issues with unexpected overwrites. Here is the
latest entry I've added to the bug in Bugzilla.

=======================================================================
An examination of the installed files from the Heimdal package show that
it overwrites the following files:

>From Glibc:

/usr/include/fnmatch.h
/usr/include/glob.h

>From E2fsprogs:

/usr/include/ss/ss.h
/usr/lib/libss.a
/usr/lib/libss.so

Not sure what to do at this point other than to place instructions
before the Heimdal installation to mv the existing files to different
names. Then install the package, move the conflicting files to different
names, and move the original files back to their original names.

This would preserve the integrity of the Glibc and E2fsprogs packages,

Excellent observation.  I like this a lot better.

Re: Heimdal overwrites

I don't currently install heimdal (but plan to in the next build), so
these are just observations.

The includes can probably be solved by adding a
--includedir=/usr/include/heimdal or something similar. If heimdal is
a properly autoconfed package, it should accept the above switch.

For the libraries, a proper sed/patch would prevent their
installation, assuming that the heimdal libraries are not needed. If
the patch is not feasible, maybe use "make DESTDIR=/opt/heimdal
install" to install (assuming it supports DESTDIR), remove the libs
and then move everything to the proper location.
