This is a progress report on what remains for LFS-6.5:
#1929 Use 'make install', when it can work, instead of 'cp', when installing
single files. bdubbs
I haven't heard any feedback on this. Will mark as won't fix if I don't hear
#2326 Modifications to Preface gerard
Some changes have been made. Waiting for final review to close.
#2329 Zlib FPIC patch reopened bdubbs
I need some additional feedback on this. Robert has problems with passing -fPIC
to the build of the libz static library.
#2330 development build-logs bdubbs
I've just finished building -dev by hand. I'll redo with jhalfs and upload the
logs to the website. With gcc-4, the build times have changed (gcc testing is
up to about 40 SBU). I'll also update the size/time info in packages.ent from
#2391 Util-Linux-NG-2.15 blocker matthew
We are really waiting for the 2.16 release and possibly a new release of
e2fsprogs to work this.
#2398 Coreutils-7.4 fails 2 stty tests unassigned
I could not duplicate this problem. I recommend closing, but Matt should do it.
#2399 GCC-4.4.0 fails 7 tests unexpectedly unassigned
I could duplicate this, but it's a known common issue. I recommend closing,
but Matt should do it.
#2410 Inconsistencies in Chapter 5 glibc unassigned
This is a text only change in an abbreviated discussion of locales. I'd fix it,
but I don't know what should be said. I'm looking for feedback here.
#2415 Revalidate need for patches and seds in Chapter 5 unassigned
I created this ticket and should probably assign it to myself.
#2417 Gettext autopoint.in fix unassigned
Robert points to an upstream patch. This is a minor issue. I'll take it if
someone else doesn't get it before the weekend.
#2418 6.25. Grep-2.5.4 test errors unassigned
The text doesn't match my results. I'd like to get confirmation on this one.
Again, I'll take it if someone else doesn't get it before the weekend.
#2419 gdbm sbu and disk usage values are missing from packages.ent bdubbs
I'll fix this when I do #2330
Selected tickets marked for 7.0 that could be done for 6.5 while we are waiting
#2092 Switch all text back from third person to second person pronouns gerard
Some fixes have been made. We can probably promote this to 6.5
#2184 Provide more information on kernel configuration unassigned
I'll do this if I have time after the other tickets. I'm thinking that it
should be written as a hint and then have the book point to the hint. Comments?
#2337 Kbd-1.15 doesn't map U+2010 to U+002d in lat1-16 font unassigned
I'm thinking that a short hint be written to address this and a pointer be
placed in the book to the pointer. Comments?
#2409 Evaluate "From Power Up To Bash Prompt" unassigned
We may not have to make changes other than to say in the book that the info was
written a while ago but is still relevant. Volunteers to evaluate this?
#2411 Evaluate "LFS next to existing systems" hint. unassigned
Same as #2409. Volunteers?
#2413 Chapter 5 - GCC Pass 2 - changing dynamic linker location unassigned
Relatively straight forward simplification of instructions. I'll do it this
weekend if no one else wants it.
#2414 Evaluate Optimization hint unassigned
Same as #2409. Volunteers?
