Subject: tpkg-install-libc now requires linux-kernel-headers
Date: Mon, 1 Dec 2003 08:46:44 +1100
Package: toolchain-source
Version: 3.2-8

The script tpkg-install-libc now requires downloading the package
linux-kernel-headers.  This is due to the fact that the version of
libc6-dev in Debian unstable requires this additional package.  The
following patch does what is needed for this to work.

Please note the following points:

* This patch requires a patch to dpkg-cross(1), as noted in Bug 222168.
* This patch downloads all packages to a user-defined location, by
  default /tmp/tpkg-install-libc.  This makes it easier to clean up
  the temporary directory :-)

Yours truly,

John Zaitseff
