AMD64 64 bit glibc fixed (hopefully)
1 minute read

I’ve now cleaned up the patch for building the 64 bit amd64 glibc. It should be fine and work well, but since it haven’t built yet, I don’t know that for sure. Thanks to Snow-Man for testing the package for me, and also big thanks to maswan for helping me out when my AMD64 box is 500 kms away and powered off on a desk. He also let me have root to test the packages and didn’t go mad when I had to break out of the chroot to install a package. Once the libc is properly fixed, a lot of the packages which were uninstallable in sid should now be fine. The next target is gcc, since the biarch gcc on alioth is getting a little old. Yay AMD64.
