<civodul>not many patches showing up these days
<civodul>wake up! :-)
<civodul>a package a day keeps the other package manager away
<jmd>civodul: All the easy ones have been done.
<civodul>LibreOffice anyone? :-)
<davexunit>that's a big one
<civodul>yep, the biggest
<civodul>it depends on OpenJDK IIRC
<jmd>I've had several attempts at gnucash.
<jmd>and the final issue with octave I haven't yet solved.
<davexunit>openjdk isn't packaged yet, is it?
<civodul>it's the second biggest ;-)
<civodul>and it's a pain
<civodul>jmd: we can attempt collective debugging here or on the list
<civodul>mark_weaver: does Binutils 2.24 still need the loongson patches?
<mark_weaver>civodul: no. the same patch is already in binutils 2.24 (although from a different person, interestingly)
<mark_weaver>civodul: oh, sorry
<mark_weaver>civodul: one of the patches is no longer needed. but the other one still is.
<civodul>ok, i'm checking
<mark_weaver>binutils-loongson-madd-fix.patch is no longer needed
<mark_weaver>binutils-loongson-workaround.patch is still needed.
<civodul>ah ok
<civodul>damn, now libbfd is not installed by default, and if you insist, it's installed, but in an obscure directory
<civodul>a little bit crazy IMO
<civodul>(given that the library has been stable for ages)
