hidden dependencies, WTH?

Post by Gene Hesket » Mon, 24 Dec 2001 00:25:49

All of a sudden, the stuff I can get from the likes of freshmeat all
install without dependency problems, but when you try to run it, like
the latest less, it reports it can't run without the gcc-3.1.0
version of libc6?

It wouldn't be so bad, except that it (the newset gcc and company)
can't be installed without first removing kde!

Do I have something duff on my system, or is this new compiler a
whole different animal?  I mean I'm currently useing 2.96-101 and
running kernel 2.4.17 built with it.

Cheers, Gene


1. 2.4.21-pre2: HID & input dependencies

Current 2.4 (2.4.21-pre2+bk) allows me to configure input as modules and
then USB HID as compiled-in. The result is of course unresolved symbols.
Probably HID should depend on input in a better way.
