Description

In feature/jessie, we're currently shipping 3:6.03+dfsg-5tails1. The patch we've added are now part of 3:6.03+dfsg-6 in sid. It's probably not worth changing how we do it for Wheezy, but we should have the updated syslinux in jessie-backports and then install it from there.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri over 4 years ago

Note that this may have some implications on our build setup and documentation, that now instructs to fetch our custom syslinux-utils.

#2 Updated by intrigeri over 4 years ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress

#3 Updated by intrigeri about 4 years ago

The patches we want are in Jessie now: syslinux (3:6.03+dfsg-5+deb8u1)

#4 Updated by intrigeri about 4 years ago

We had:

feature-jessie|main|amd64: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5+deb8u1
feature-jessie|main|i386: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5+deb8u1
feature-jessie|main|source: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5+deb8u1

and

builder-jessie|main|amd64: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5tails1
builder-jessie|main|i386: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5tails1
builder-jessie|main|source: syslinux 3:6.03+dfsg-5tails1

... and I just removed them.

#5 Updated by intrigeri about 4 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
  • Assignee deleted (intrigeri)

We still build on Wheezy (that hasn't syslinux 6.x so we still need our custom package anyway), so the only part of the build process that's affected is the branch for #9262, where I pushed a6bab2b to take these changes into account. I think we're now done then.
