so I've tested and updated the RPMs, spec file and patch, which are available at: http://dev.laptop.org/~bobbyp/upstart/ They don't work! First thing to notice is that I cut down the olpc-init patch a lot. The third section of the original patch was for a file that doesn't exist (and wasn't renamed as far as I can tell, I've greped a fair amount for its content). So I originally had left the first part in, but the image created with it gave the following error when init was first called: init: Unhandled Error: Address already in use Now, with just the pid snarfing part in main.c, Upstart seems to hang without giving any messages. None of the other Fedora patches have been applied (it seems as if the devel branch of upstart in Fedora CVS is a work in progress, to say the least), so unless anyone here has insight, getting them to apply seems like the next logical step. I can make my non-booting rawhide image available if anyone is interested. What I did was to run 'sudo make' on the puritan rawhide branch, wait for it to finish, chroot into $(CHROOT)/versions/pristine/767 and run 'rpm -Uvh http://dev.laptop.org/~bobbyp/upstart/upstart-0.5.0-1.fc11.i386.rpm', delete r/wrap*, then rerun 'sudo make'. Someone with more knowledge of sockets, upstart and Fedora's patches to it, and the init process might have better luck or be able to help me out :) If we can figure this out, I would be glad to help get as much of this as possible upstreamed (as well as into the F11 upstart package). yours, Bobby (I'll be out of town till Tuesday, so I probably won't be able to work on this again 'till then) _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
