Ralf,


While this package surprisingly compiles for MIPS it shouldn't be used
ever for anything on Linux/MIPS as we don't have libc4 / libc 5.

You're right about Libc5, but I need it for uClibc. Besides it surprisingly does not compile for MIPS, as it misses many parts of MIPS assembly code, usually found under sysdep part of ld.so.

The equivalent for libc6 aka glibc 2 is part of glibc.

The whole idea behind uClibc was to get rid of that huge chunk of memory-wasting package, and I do not mean to use any part of it.
Unless you can tell me how ld.so of glibc can be compiled standalone :-)



Florian, can you remove this package from Debian/MIPS?

Florian, please, if you still have sources, can you tell me where they are?


Sincerely yours,
Michael Shmulevich
