I'm wondering how to tackle an issue with the crash utility and its
I'd like to build crash-eppic as a subpackage of eppic, because that's
where the source code is maintained by upstream these days. The trouble
is that crash-eppic is now a subpackage of the crash package, which is
at version 7.1.5. There is no versioned release of eppic, but the
upstream maintainer told me that the next versioned release would be
4.0, so I can safely use a bogus version of 3.99.$something for the
I'm unsure what to do about the version of crash-eppic. If it inherits
the version number from eppic, it would be downgraded from 7.1.5 to
3.99.$something. I assume this is a problem for Tumbleweed. If I keep
7.1.5 as the version number, then it's a completely arbitrary one - it
would merely indicate the last crash version where the extension was
built from the incorrect sources.
I could probably change the version if I name the package differently,
but "crash-eppic" is in fact the perfect name, as there are other crash
extensions named "crash-something".
FTR Fedora doesn't seem to package crash extensions...
Any ideas are welcome!
P.S. Some background if you want to ask how we ended up in this
Originally, the eppic extension was part of the
upstream crash tarball. Consequently, crash-eppic was built as a
subpackage of the crash package.
At some point, upstream development of eppic was split off (see
). This repo now contains the
library (which is also used by other projects, e.g. makedumpfile) and
the crash extension code.
