Description Mark Reiche 2013-02-23 21:12:41 UTC
In my attempt to emerge util-linux-2.22.2 on my uclibc system, I came across a patch written by Mike Frysinger <>

This enables the assignment-allocation "m" character - without it, util-linux-2.22.2 fails to build.

Could you please add this patch to the tree?

Reproducible: Always

Patch that adds support for "m" character

I had to modify the patch from the git repository a little bit, so that it applies to version

You probably need to merge this patch as well
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2013-03-03 03:52:59 UTC
i already committed these to uclibc- which has been in the tree for a month or so at this point
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2013-03-03 03:54:25 UTC

FYI, the new stage3-<arch>-hardened and stage3-<arch>-vanilla under /experimental/<arch/uclibc are using -r3.
