[mc - Midnight Commander] new release for hppa

Hi all,
I just finished the new pre-release (4.6.0-4.6.1-pre3) mc package for
Debian HPPA. I would like someone to take a look and eventually to give
some suggestion for its improvement.
You can apt-get both source and binary adding the following line in
/etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://www.openlabs.it/~stex/debian ./
deb-src http://www.openlabs.it/~stex/debian ./

It has also been available for i386 and powerpc.
I would also like to submit a doubt: I used an HP9000/785 (C3k)
workstation for my work. How can I be sure that I compiled it as 32-bit
system binary of 64-bit system binary? If I remember well this C3k is a
64bit workstation, isn't it?

Thank you in advance for your precious help.

Regards

SteX

While the c3k is PA 2.0 CPU and can run 64-bit kernels, all of
parisc-linux user space is 32-bit. Unless you specified
hppa64-linux-gcc, you'll be getting a 32-bit binary.

I haven't specified any particular compiler, so as you said, the package
is a 32-bit binary.
Do you want me to build the same pkg with the `hppa64-linux-gcc' and
provide it to you all?
Or is it enough for the Debian purpose to have the 32-bit binary?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

I appreciate any comment or critic on the mc pkg; Ludovic Drolez asked to
co-maintain the pkg for x86. Is it the case to have also an `official' uploader for hppa?

Thank you in advance

[hppa cross compiler]

Hi all,
are there any cross compilers for hppa in Debian bundle? what do you use to
x-compile from non-hppa to hppa?
Thank you in advance

Regards

SteX

PS: on ESIEE site I found some x-compilers, which I couldn't find as .deb;
is it the case to package for debian?

And afaik its pdc allow to boot either a 64bit kernel or a 32bit one :-)

But we haven't yet 64bit user env available (iirc in the todo list of Carlos)
;-)

As Grant said there is NO 64bit userland on parisc. 64bit binaries are
pointless (besides you're going to have hard time building any,
provided there is no 64bit glibc :-P).

apt-cache search is used to look for packages. Alternatively you can
use packages.debian.org. Use toolchain-source to build cross
compilers.

OTOH, looking at the official website would have showed you this:
http://www.parisc-linux.org/software/index.html

Please avoid cross-posting when it's not necessary. debian-hppa is
meant to discuss Debian hppa related matters (userland), parisc-linux
is meant to discuss parisc linux *kernel* stuff.

As Grant said, there is no support for 64-bit userspace yet; only 32-bit.
A 64-bit build of mc wouldn't run on any parisc-linux machine.

It's certainly possible to do that, but the normal case is to upload on
one architecture and let the buildds for the other architectures chew
on it.

32-bit is sufficient right now - thanks.

64-bit user space isn't working (yet).

Sorry - I don't understand the question - someone else will likely
have to answer anyway.

thanks,

That's not true in general. It might be true to mc.
