Binary packages built by this source

comerr-dev: common error description library - headers and static libraries

 libcom_err is an attempt to present a common error-handling mechanism to
 manipulate the most common form of error code in a fashion that does not
 have the problems identified with mechanisms commonly in use.
 .
 This package contains the development environment for the com_err library.

e2fsck-static: statically-linked version of the ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem checker

 This may be of some help to you if your filesystem gets corrupted enough
 to break the shared libraries used by the dynamically linked checker.
 .
 This binary takes much more space than its dynamic counterpart located
 in e2fsprogs, though.
 .
 You may want to install a statically-linked shell as well, to be able
 to run this program if something like your C library gets corrupted.

e2fslibs: ext2/ext3/ext4 file system libraries

 The ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems are successors of the original ext
 ("extended") file system. They are the main file system types used for
 hard disks on Debian and other Linux systems.
 .
 This package provides the ext2fs and e2p libraries, for userspace software
 that directly accesses extended file systems. Programs that use libext2fs
 include e2fsck, mke2fs, and tune2fs. Programs that use libe2p include
 dumpe2fs, chattr, and lsattr.

e2fslibs-dbg: debugging information for e2fslibs

 This package includes the debug information useful for debugging the
 ext2fs and e2p libraries, contained in the e2fslibs package. The debug
 information is used for execution tracing and core dump analysis.

e2fslibs-dev: ext2/ext3/ext4 file system libraries - headers and static libraries

 The ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems are successors of the original ext
 ("extended") file system. They are the main file system types used for
 hard disks on Debian and other Linux systems.
 .
 This package contains the development environment for the ext2fs and e2p
 libraries.

e2fsprogs: ext2/ext3/ext4 file system utilities

 The ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems are successors of the original ext
 ("extended") file system. They are the main file system types used for
 hard disks on Debian and other Linux systems.
 .
 This package contains programs for creating, checking, and maintaining
 ext2/3/4-based file systems.

e2fsprogs-dbg: debugging information for e2fsprogs

 This package includes the debug information useful for debugging e2fsprogs
 and its libraries, contained in the e2fsprogs and e2fsck-static packages.
 The debug information is used for execution tracing and core
 dump analysis.

e2fsprogs-udeb: stripped-down versions of e2fsprogs, for debian-installer

 This package is an e2fsprogs package built for a reduced size, so that
 it can help to save space in debian-installer.
 .
 Don't attempt to install this package, it has no support for a couple of
 features you surely want. Anyway it should refuse to install.

libcomerr2: common error description library

 libcomerr is an attempt to present a common error-handling mechanism to
 manipulate the most common form of error code in a fashion that does not
 have the problems identified with mechanisms commonly in use.

libcomerr2-dbg: debugging information for libcomerr2

 This package includes the debug information useful for debugging the
 com_err library, contained in the libcomerr2 package. The debugging
 information is used for execution tracing and core dump analysis.

libss2: command-line interface parsing library

 libss provides a simple command-line interface parser which will
 accept input from the user, parse the command into an argv argument
 vector, and then dispatch it to a handler function.
 ..
 It was originally inspired by the Multics SubSystem library.

libss2-dbg: debugging information for libss2

 This package includes the debug information useful for debugging the
 ss library, contained in the libss2 package. The debug information
 is used for execution tracing and core dump analysis.

ss-dev: command-line interface parsing library - headers and static libraries

 This package includes a tool that parses a command table to generate
 a simple command-line interface parser, the include files needed to
 compile and use it, and the static libs.
 ..
 It was originally inspired by the Multics SubSystem library.
 .
 This package contains the development environment for the ss library.
