As I already said, I think the proper place to discuss all this is on the Xenomai mailing list. I have no problem renaming sigtest, at all, I do not even require a patch to do it. The point is that we did not even knew that it generated a conflict. And for me this is the real problem, I am all for helping Roland generating good packages, but if he does not want to talk to us, what choice do we have? -- Gilles. _______________________________________________ Xenomai-core mailing list Xenomaiemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/xenomai-core
