Description Omkhar Arasaratnam (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-05 16:49:06 UTC
I managed to cobble together a patch which seems to allow sysklogd to compile under gentoo (previously undoable). It is based on the RH package and actually includes a number of fixed for "off by one" buff overflows as a side benefit. I will attach the patch file to create the neccassary ebuild joo joo

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 2 Tom Gall (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-07 21:09:18 UTC

For this kinda thing, instead of a patch that applies against the whole thing,
it's convention to submit the patch to the ebuild, and the new sysklogd-1.4.1-ppc64.patch as seperate submissions. (Least I'm weird and like it this way)

Could you do this please?

Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-04-07 21:11:28 UTC
that sounds awkward but what he means is that it's normal to attach patches as sep files rather than a big patch that produces a bunch of files and the patch itself ...

I think tgall is just being difficult (Hakuna Matata my foot!) ;-)

Ok here she is - broken out a bit

Comment 8 Tom Gall (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-09 19:47:20 UTC
well Omkhar you uncovered a rather interesting little problem with the ppc64
asm-ppc64/signal.h file.  Basically she wasn't #ifdef'ing properly.

Plasmaroo, can you pick up this patch for the 2.6.11-r2 kernel-headers?

rework of omkhar's foo

This patch is a rework and applies cleanly on top of the current sysklog
version. It applies to all archies so soon as plasmaroo works his magic,  we'll
wanna see about getting all the appropriate parties on board to pick up this

Closing this bug.  Omkhar has retired and syslog-ng is more than sufficient.
