Description Debian samba package maintainers (PUBLIC MAILING LIST) 2009-04-26 05:49:21 UTC
A recent investigation done among all Debian packages showed that samba's config.{sub|guess} files are "quite" outdated (dated 2005: this is not stone age but already 4 years old..:-))

Upstream autotools (http://savannah.gnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/*checkout*/config/config/config.guess) is dated 2008-01-23 so we propose using these (will be attached to this bug report), at least starting from 3.4

Comment 3 Michael Adam 2009-04-30 17:47:53 UTC
Hmm,
The version given below actually list a different url for obtaining the latest config.guess and config.sub: the git repository.

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD
(dated 2009-04-27)

and

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD
(dated 2009-04-17)

The logs can be browsed from here:
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD

So I'd rather go to the current HEAD versions.
Or are there specific reasons to take the January 2008 versions?

Michael
Comment 4 Michael Adam 2009-04-30 18:23:07 UTC
Ok, after confirmation by Luk on irc, I pushed these latest versions to master and v3-4-test.
Comment 5 Michael Adam 2009-04-30 18:24:12 UTC
this will be in 3.4 and following releases.
marking bug as fixed.
Comment 6 Debian samba package maintainers (PUBLIC MAILING LIST) 2009-06-06 01:48:12 UTC
Apparently, Michael, you updated source3/config.{guess|sub}, but not other copies that lie around in source4/, lib/*, etc.

Is there a reason for this or just forgetting to look around for all such copies?

Oops, thanks for the hint - I simply forgot to update the other copies...

See also Bug 6370 for the same thing in CTDB
Comment 9 Michael Adam 2009-09-15 06:40:40 UTC
If I am not mistaken,
jelmer recently updated all the config.{guess|sub} files in the master branch.
Should go into 3.5...

Michael, can we close out this one?
Comment 11 Karolin Seeger 2010-05-20 02:54:47 UTC
Updating component.
