Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Standard GIT
Keywords: Cc: berzerkula@…, jonathan@…, chris@…, cross-lfs@…


Some added USE variables:

make USE_IDN=no USE_NETTLE=no USE_CRYPTO=no TARGETS="clockdiff ping rdisc tracepath traceroute6"

Could create a patch like our current version. Nothing from the previous IPutils version needs to apply.

Generate man-pages and create patch. Add attr, acl, libcap to sysvinit book.

The patch has built man pages and documentation and affects the build variables:

  • USE_IDN=no (default yes)
  • USE_NETTLE=no (default yes)
  • USE_CRYPTO=no (default shared)


patch -Np1 -i ../iputils-s20161105-build-1.patch
make ping tracepath traceroute6 clockdiff rdisc

We may or may not want this layout and the 4711 permissions on ping and traceroute6. Was following Slackware's layout.

ln -sv ping /bin/ping4
