The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2262
FreeBSD 6.x not recognised as a build platform
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:18:27 UTC
Since FreeBSD 5.x became stable, all the development moved to the 6.x branch.
It's not properly recognized by the configure yet. Here is a small patch. To be
sure it increases the range to 5-9 :))
Warning: Offsets maybe wrong - this is a part of a bigger patch for FreeBSD port.
Created attachment 899 [details]
Make configure to recogninze FreeBSD 6.x
I'm tempted just to change this to '*freebsd6*)'.
How much more of a patch to configure do you have for freebsd 6 at the moment?
Don't forget, that freebsd5 is there as well and needs the same configuration,
There is no much difference besides numbering at the moment between FreeBSD 5
and 6, so that's the only changes at the moment...
With farther development the gap may grow, of course.
P.S> Don't forget samba4 :)
commiting the change as '*freebsd5*|*freebsd6*'
originally reported against 3.0.11pre1. Moving back to version to 3.0.10
to remove preX and rcX versions.
FreeBSD 7.x branch was just created and the whole history repeated again...
I'd recommend to apply initial patch with broader range of versions, as with new
release policy we are expecting new branch every half a year or so...
Initial patch added to trunk and 3_0; rev 8641.
Timur: Please check if this is fine for you. Else reopen this bug and assign it
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
