agreed, tried it the other day
commented out the blowfisch patch too

i'm not sure if the toolchain stuff ( with binutils 2.18 and gcc 4.2.2 is
the right way to go [works here though])

good work anyway !!

Betreff: hlfs-0.3

SVN-2007102x (23rd to 25th) is going to be the release candidate for 
hlfs-0.3-glibc-2.6. I'm going through it to fix minor stuff, and update

I'm going to comment out the Glibc blowfish patch because it's currently 
unused by any package.

Sysctl erandom no longer works with Glibc-2.7, so I'm discontinuing sysctl 
support with the new glibc-2.5.1 arc4_prng patch. The new patch will fix the

bug where arc4random isn't random when /dev/zero is symlinked to
(haven't figured out the best way yet).

Other than that the Glibc-2.6 book has no system bugs as far as I know, so a

0.3 tag should be reasonably stable.
