Can this be applied to glibc?
https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cg...d6a0632ce263f4
https://github.com/FeralInteractive/...ripts/issues/3

Long story short, something is changed at glibc and breaks Feral games from detecting lib path correctly.
For longer story go visit the links.

I modified rc.S and rc.6 as workaround.
I don't know if it can be helpful to broader audience.

Anyways, here comes the code (bold is mine, the same code for both rc.S and rc.6):
Code:
# hwclock will often hang for a few seconds when reading or writing
# the RTC while wakealarm <> 0. Clear wakealarm temporarily.
if [ -w /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm ]; then
  WAKEALARM=$(cat /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm)
  if [ -n "$WAKEALARM" ]; then
    echo "Clearing wakealarm:  echo 0 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm"
    echo 0 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm
  fi
fi

[..]
if [ -x /sbin/hwclock ]; then
  [..]
fi

# Restore wakealarm.
if [ -w /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm ]; then
  if [ -n "$WAKEALARM" ]; then
    echo "Restoring wakealarm:  echo $WAKEALARM > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm"
    echo $WAKEALARM > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm
  fi
  unset WAKEALARM
fi

This is a known RTC driver timer queue issue.

There is a patch, but I do not know when Alexandre will submit it to Linus.

My wishlist for the next release would be for git send-email
to work securely.

Code:
git help send-email

Note: the following perl modules are required Net::SMTP::SSL,
      MIME::Base64 and Authen::SASL
git send-email is very convenient for sending patches for review.

Yes, I can install the required perl modules myself, but it would be
nice to have a fully functional git out of the box.

Samba build fails after the latest updates.
Looks like a known issue that has been fixed in Debian.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1491307
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=750593
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/coll...ng_subst.patch

It builds fine with patched lib.xsl


Cheers
