    2011-12-02 - Adam Conrad <> 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. (Closes: 554233)

    2009-03-15 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <> ssmping (0.9.1-2) unstable; urgency=low * Change debian/rules 'build' target to use the CFLAGS defined in debian/rules * 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 file * 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

    2007-08-22 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <> ssmping (0.9-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release (Closes: #376125)
