prc-tools continues to go way too slowly, due mainly to my having to spend a lot of time doing things for which I get paid. Bah!

I've hacked around the binutils issue by reverting to a base code segment address of 0x1000 instead of 0x0. This will probably break other things horribly, but I'll get the package out first and fixed second. Once the last of the packaging dramas are out of the way (how many different methods of specifying paths can we find today :/), it's off to cleaning up tripwire. Who knows, maybe I can get bug free by the time Debian releases woody.

prc-tools continues not to want to pass the libgcc1-test target. The ld in both 2.10 and 2.7 produce the same map but the 2.10 code continues to complain about region overlap.

Bah! Time to go and learn way more than I want to about COFF :/

More on the prc-tools thing. So far everything builds with the latest releases of gcc, binutils & gdb. I was expecting more pain.

The only thing wrong, to date is that 'as' gets the .text and .data symbols screwed up somehow and 'ld' chokes on this during the 'gcc' build. Ah well, something to poke at while I watch client copies in my real job.

Wel, finally found time to do the prc-tools package. I really want this done today so here's hoping real-life goes away for a bit

Must seriously sit down with Archive::Tar too. Andreas is having problems with it in CPAN.pm and the Win32 folks still don't have something they can use. Oh well.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
