The tiff programs would not compile against my old libtiff.so because I
did not have the header files. I will get the libtiff developer's
packages from SW81 if I can't compile libtiff, for which I might need a
newer gcc-g++. With luck, nobody will send me any tiffs for a while.
Could I just do a make tiffpnm and make pnmtiff or is there some other way
to compile just those two files?
When doing make package, I got an error message that I have no echo.
busybox 1.01 has echo. I put busybox 1.01 on the path on this computer
ahead of the previous busybox (which I had updated to BL3 busybox).
Steven, can you include echo in the next BL busybox (which I hope you can
compile from 1.01 with uClibc). Thanks.
While tracking down libc.so.5-dependent libraries, I noticed that I have
in /usr/lib about 70MB of libraries which I think are used only for static
Can I safely delete at least anything in _p.a, such as a 25MB libc_p.a
files? The newer libraries no longer come in these pairs, just plain .a
(p = panel?)
There is also a 25MB libc.a. If I used this to compile something
statically so it could be used on a non-upgraded SW71-based BL2, how much
would it add to the result? Should I bother trying to do this, or can
other list members upgrade to glibc 2.2.5 or 2.3.1 instead?
Then there is a gconv directory with 8MB of things like MACINTOSH.so
GEORGIAN_ACADEMY.so qand libJIS.so and EBCDIC_PT.so. Do I need anything
in here other than gconv-modules, ISO8859-*.so, and IBM*.so, EBCDIC_US.so?
BL3 does not even have this directory - what does it convert? A web search
suggests it does something with locale (the contents of which I deleted
since I read English).
Do I need any of these to display other character sets with loadfont? They
came with the 25MB glibc-2.2.5 (along with most of the 70MB of files in .a
and _p.a) and may be used with iconv (which converts between character
I will keep the 4MB /usr/include and files it put into /usr/bin and
I deleted most of terminfo, based on BL3, and all of zoneinfo.
I will repackage my libc5 netpbm to be just for BL3, and package libc6
netpbm for BL2 (or upgraded BL3?) after I get the tiff header files and
compile tifftopnm. Should I add any programs to what I selected for
