Subject: kbd: please update config.guess and config.sub for arm64
Date: Sat, 9 Feb 2013 00:14:57 +0000
Package: kbd
Version: 1.15.3-9
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
Usertags: arm64

Please update config.guess and config.sub to a current version from
autotools-dev to support the arm64 architecture (aarch64-linux-gnu).  A
patch follows in case it helps.

I used the autotools-dev debhelper addons for this since that kind of
thing is less hassle than explicitly creating a patch for 3.0 (quilt)
sources, but you may like to consider using dh-autoreconf instead.  I've
been converting my packages to it and have found it a great improvement.

  * Use autotools-dev to update config.guess and config.sub automatically.

Source: kbd
Binary: kbd kbd-udeb
Architecture: source amd64
Version: 1.15.5-1
Distribution: unstable
Urgency: low
Maintainer: Console utilities maintainers <>
Changed-By: Michael Schutte <>
 kbd        - Linux console font and keytable utilities
 kbd-udeb   - Linux console keyboard setup utilities (udeb)
Closes: 692014 694169 700119
 kbd (1.15.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
     - Drop the loadkeys_stdin patch introduced in 1.15.3-2 (included in this
     - The kbd tarball now ships with a basic implementation of vlock.  This
       program will not be included in the binary package.
     - resizecons is now built and installed on amd64, closes: #692014.  Also
       amend the manpages patch to explain the program’s absence on
       non-x86[_64] architectures in resizecons.8.
     - Build the Spanish messages again (dropped in 1.15.3-1).
   * Treat src/loadkeys.analyze.h (generated by flex, but also shipped in the
     orig tarball) specially in debian/rules so the clean target functions
     properly and the package can be built twice in a row.
   * Use dh-autoreconf to regenerate config.guess and config.sub during the
     build process, closes: #700119.  This introduces new build-deps on
     dh-autoreconf and autopoint and removes the explicit dependencies on
     autoconf and automake.  Thanks to Colin Watson <> for
     the hint.
   * Update the source URL and the years of publication in debian/copyright and
     add a paragraph for the added vlock code.
   * New patch loadkeys_flex_stack, taken from upstream Git: Fix a regression
     in loadkeys.analyze.l which causes some keymap files to fail to load.
   * New patch dead2 by Samuel Thibault <> to support
     KT_DEAD2 diacritics in loadkeys and dumpkeys, closes: #694169.  Thank you
     for the patch, Samuel!
   * Drop the “Skipping font and keymap setup” message from /etc/init.d/kbd
     because it’s really somewhat silly to log what the script isn’t doing.
   * Use a canonical URL for the Vcs-Git: field.
   * Bump Standards-Version: to 3.9.4, no changes necessary.
