or Any Source Multicast (ASM) via either IPv4 or IPv6

ssmping (0.9.1-3build1) precise; urgency=low
* No-change rebuild to drop spurious libsfgcc1 dependency on armhf.
2010-02-19 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <>
ssmping (0.9.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix FTBFS with new glibcs and type mismatch warning in x86_64 systems:
-  Use socklen_t as type of variable whose address is passed as arg 3 of
getsockname , not size_t.
- (_GNU_SOURCE): Define, so the use of pktinfo->ipi6_ifindex works with
recent glibc-based header files.
Thanks to Jim Meyering for the patch.

ssmping (0.9.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Change debian/rules 'build' target to use the CFLAGS defined in 
* Close a FTBFS bug by defining -D_GNU_SOURCE in CFLAGS in debian/rules.
This is needed in order to include the proper definition of
in6_pktinfo. This seems to be a bug in libc6-dev (2.9-4) since we
previously (libc6-dev 2.7-18) did not need this to get that definition from
/usr/include/netinet/in.h  (Closes: #518868)
2008-09-12 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <>
ssmping (0.9.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (Closes: #376125)
- Fix in mcfist that made it consume 100% CPU
* Take over this package, no maintainer response for the above bug for over
two years.
* debian/control changes
- Move Homepage: to header
- Update Standards version, no changes needed
* Move the package over to quilt, previous maintainer used it, but in his
git repostory. All upstream patches are now in debian/patches/series and
the package Build-Depends: on quilt
* Use debhelper compatibility version 5, and adjust debian/control
* Remove unnecesary configure and binary-indep targets in the debian/rules
* Lintian fixes:
- Remove usr/sbin from debian/dirs as it is not used, 
- Add a proper copyright notice in debian/changelog
- Link ssmpingd.1 to ssmping.1 since the manpage covers both tools
- Do not ignore errors when cleaning in debian/rules, do it in the
specific upstream command instead
