#11105 new defect

readline creates unwriteable, strip fails, breaking build

Reported by: Basil Nutmeg <basil+openwrt@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


The libreadline package creates a file that does not
have write permissions, on a Linux host. This causes the build to fail
when it attempts to strip this library.

Adding the following to package/libreadline/patches fixed the problem
for me, though I don't know if it's the Right Way.

This makes the package much bigger when debugging. The patch works for me.
