Jutro do dystrybucji Debian testing (codename Sarge) po długich bojach „wchodzi” glibc 2.3.1-14, a wraz z nim 800 innych przetrzymanych pakietów. Co nas może spotkać ? Oryginalną wiadomość znajdziemy tutaj.
[the reposted version, silly mailing lists] Hello world, glibc 2.3.1-14 should be entering testing "tomorrow" (sometime around 30 hours from now, depending on your mirror). Along with it, some 800 other source packages and all their binaries are expected to be updated. For those of you running testing systems, please take care of the next few days' upgrades, as a number of things *will* break. php4 will be broken on all architectures. This will be fixed by the removal of the Conflicts: line from the libc6 packages in a forthcoming revision. It can be worked around by not upgrading until that version of libc6 is available; by upgrading to php4 from unstable; or by manually forcing the dependencies (and not using apt). On sparc, the libc6-sparc64 package has been removed; this will mean you'll be unable to install the versions of gcc-3.0, gcc-3.2, and a number of related packages in testing. This can be worked around by not using the versions of those packages from unstable, or by not upgrading libc6 until new versions of the affected packages have entered testing. On hppa, a number of programs that make use of the __clz_tab symbol will fail to find it. That this symbol is visible was a bug in the toolchain, that has been fixed; unfortunately the fix breaks old software, including, eg, wget, lftp and other programs that link against libcrypto. You can work around this problem by avoiding using the affected programs, by rebuilding them from source, or by not upgrading libc6. Some compatability code will be introduced in the next version of glibc so that this isn't an issue. Similar problems related to other symbols might appear on hppa or other architectures. The problem is believed to have been fixed on i386, but may not have been entirely addressed. Please report problems you find in the usual manner. There may be undiscovered interactions between the software that isn't being updated yet, and the 800 packages that are being updated. Given that so many packages are being updated in a single hit, and that a number of core packages (gcc, perl, python, gnome, kde) will differ between testing and unstable, this is significantly more likely than usual. In short, please take care administering any testing systems you rely on over the next few days. If you wish to put libc6 on hold, you can do so at the command line by: # echo libc6 hold | dpkg --set-selections or by using dselect or aptitude or similar. Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns
