More bug fixing

October 7, 2010

I've been mostly working on GnuCash the past few evenings. I added more info and a test case to Bug #593856, so that should fall into place soon.

I turned my attention to ettercap this evening, and Bug #521857 - another easy one, just applying the updated patch. Except when I ran "lintian -F", I got:

lintian -F /var/cache/pbuilder/result/ettercap_0.7.3-2.1_amd64.changes
E: ettercap: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/sbin/ettercap /usr/lib
E: ettercap-gtk: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/sbin/ettercap /usr/lib

This led me to a Jan 2008 email from Raphael Geissert about packages defining RPATH on amd64. For now, I've rebuilt in an i386 chroot - I'd need some help making a full lintian run on amd64 if I were going to propose a mass bug-filing.
