#9389 closed defect (obsolete)

[packages] usbutils: Configuring stage fails because of domain squatters

Reported by: SpeederCat Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Domain squatters got linux-usb.org. For now, to compile this package we'll need to direct it to linux-usb.sourceforge.net instead (the original target of the domain).

If they can't regain control, this may become a permanent solution.

To be more clear, I only noticed this when running make V=99. The configure script tries to reach http://linux-usborg/usb-ids.html several times, but fails. Apparently, it can continue without this (at least on my machine), but it's a bit of a concern attempting a download from a known domain squatter when building a router.
