[gentoo-dev] [PATCH] kernel-2.eclass: avoid lexicographical compare on versions, bug #705246

2020-05-22 Thread Sergei Trofimovich
Originally found in bug #705240 as: ``` if [[ ... || ${KV_MAJOR}.${KV_MINOR}.${KV_PATCH} > 2.6.28 ]]; then ``` '>' are string comparisons. They are benign so far, but will start failing on linux-10 :) Let's be consistent and use version comparison. CC: ker...@gentoo.org Closes:

[gentoo-dev] nginx: slot mainline

2020-05-22 Thread Samuel Bernardo
Hi, I realize today that nginx ebuild have a new slot mainline. The current ebuild stable version 1.17 came from mainline. Anyone knows if this means that is not the stable version of nginx? After reading the following blog post I couldn't understand what they are doing now:

[gentoo-dev] [RFC] Bootloader use in eclean-kernel

2020-05-22 Thread Michał Górny
Hi, everyone. I've finally found some time to revive eclean-kernel, and I'm having some doubts about the way bootloaders are used (in ek1). I'd like to hear your opinion on whether the old behavior should be kept or removed in favor of more-like-ek2 behavior. Originally, ek1 assumed that we

[gentoo-dev] New USE=-native-symlinks for gcc-config and binutils-config

2020-05-22 Thread Sergei Trofimovich
'tc-directly' tracker https://bugs.gentoo.org/243502 tracks packages that don't respect users' CC/AR/LD flags. I added new USE=-native-symlinks mode for gcc-config and binutils-config to ease detection of such packages. Native symlinks are still installed by default. Nothing should break for

2020-05-22 Thread Sergei Trofimovich
For both multilib and non-multilib profiles binutils provides tools with native ABI prefix only. For example on amd64 there is only 'x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-nm' and 'nm'. On abi_x86_32 tools are usually configured with --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu. Configure tries i686-pc-linux-gnu-nm, then falls back to
