Description Oliver Falk 2008-09-17 08:46:40 IST
As discussed with Ulrich Drepper on RH/Fedora Bugzilla
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=458771), I report the problem here
as well. I guess a few patches are already included upstream, a few maybe not.
Please have a look at the RH Bugzilla for more information.

For me it's very critical, that we fix glibc on alpha (again), so I don't have
to fix the packages coming from Fedora over and over again. :-)

Alpha is not in the main tree anymore since we have no maintainer.  Somebody has
to step up and volunteer to be the maintainer of the alpha ports tree or nothing
will happen.

3 of the 4 patches are already in, and I'm working to get the last one in. That,
and the fact that this is kind of a meta-bug, I'm going to mark as fixed.
