Subject: [gentoo-dev] binary packages and striping
Date: Thu, 09 Mar 2006 02:47:05
1 Okay, this is a bit anticipated by my blog post and by what I've been doing
2 tonight instead of sleeping :P
4 Basically I'm trying to get cleaned up what I have in /usr/lib/debug when
5 using splitdebug, getting rid of stuff that gets stripped there... mostly
6 it's because of errors in packages or in portage, but there is stuff that is
7 not depending on either of them, and it's the case of binary packages for
8 instance.
10 skype, blackdown-jdk, rar, opera, openoffice-bin, they are all stripped by
11 upstream, but passes through portage's prepstrip, so they get stripped again
12 and the missing debug info is tried to be copied in /usr/lib/debug.
14 One alternative is to add nostrip to the restrict of those packages, so that
15 prepallstrip is skipped and extra files are not created.
16 That is what I've done with emul-x86-* packages and mplayer-bin, but I'm not
17 100% sure how it is the idea for the other binary proprietary stuff.
19 I hope we can agree on something that allows to have a better experience with
20 the new features of portage 2.1 :)
