3. Unpacking and Configuring

GCC, Linux Kernel, and PALO are already unpacked.

The only two required packages we need to worry about are binutils and glibc (which turns out to be rather complicated).

3.1 Binutils

Already in the src directory, we can do:

Now unpack the updates

Run through all the patches by hand, since they have XXX numbers on the font, they will order properly with *

Set aside the binutils directory and erase the rest.

3.2 Glibc

Now onto glibc:

Time to run the glibc patches through. Make sure that the file ./debian/patches/0list does not have a "#" in front of the "glibc-hppa" line if it does then remove the hash.

Another little frob before we run all the patches

Making sure you are in the main glibc directory ($ST/src/glibc-2.2.5.orig/glibc-2.2.5) and the ./debian/patches directory is under you, issue the following to apply the patches:

Now we are done patching glibc.

Finishing it all off we move glibc-2.2.5 into glibc for easier naming convention.
