Problem description

  • update package for SLES10 SP1 (#236771)
  • disabled libedit for SLES10 SP1
  • update to version 0.48:
    • Unbreak -l -s in the server, which was broken in 0.47.
  • additional changes from 0.47:
    • Add -L option to the server to run standalone without detaching from the shell.
    • Parallel make fix.
  • update to version 0.46:
    • Minor portability improvements.
  • additional change from 0.45: Add -l (literal) option to the client, to override the special treatment of the colon (:) character as a hostname separator.
  • replaced tftp-hpa-0.43_syntax.diff with tftp-hpa-0.46_colon_check.patch: restore a behavior which was broken with 0.35
  • merged tftp-hpa-0.43_signdness.patch with tftp-hpa-0.43_bcopy_secfix.patch. new patch: tftp-hpa-0.46_bcopy_secfix.patch.
  • added tftp-hpa-0.46_libedit.patch: Build against libedit to enable lineediting support.
  • update to version 0.44:
    • Allow the client to specify a range of local port numbers, just like the server can.
    • Fix sending SIGHUP to update the regular expression table.
  • update to version 0.43:
    • Fix double-free error on ^c in client.
    • Try to deal with clients that send TFTP requests to broadcasts (apparently some recent Sun boxes do this instead of using the address told by DHCP. Bad Sun! Bad Sun!)
    • Portability fixes.
  • removed first chunk from tftp-hpa-0.40.diff and renamed it to tftp-hpa-0.43_include_sys_params.patch. the first chunk was fixed upstream.
  • patches rediffed and renamed: tftp-bcopy-secfix.diff -> tftp-hpa-0.43_bcopy_secfix.patch tftp-hpa-0.40.readline.diff -> tftp-hpa-0.43_readline.diff tftp-hpa-0.40-syntax.diff -> tftp-hpa-0.43_syntax.diff
  • added tftp-hpa-0.43_signdness.patch: fixed signedness warnings which where mostlikely caused by the bcopy fixes.
