mpeg2dec (0.5.1-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Update patch 65_arm-test-with-compiler to only set ARCH_ARM when
optimizations are built; ARCH_ARM is really used as a test for whether to
use ARM optimizations or not in the sources; also cleanup autotools syntax
with proper AC_LANG(C), AC_LANG_SOURCE and quoting.
2012-07-01 - Loïc Minier <>
mpeg2dec (0.5.1-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix ARM tests in to check for availability of the "pld [r1]"
assembly snippet rather than relying on triplets; drop ARM specific logic
from rules; closes: #679178.  NB: these ARM specific optimizations aren't
picked up at runtime due to lack of autodetection on ARM.

- Remove depedency on gnome-pkg-tools, seems unnecessary.
* debian/control:
- Remove duplicate field.
- Remove David I. Lehn from the Uploaders field. (Closes: #557280)
- Remove URLs from packages descriptions, the Homepage: field is enough.
- Avoid to use first person in packages descriptions.
- Bump Standards.
* Add lintian override for shlib-with-non-pic-code as it is deliberate.
2008-12-20 - Loic Minier <>
mpeg2dec (0.5.1-2) experimental; urgency=low
* New patch, 60_arm-private-symbols, set visibility of global symbols used
in ARM specific assembly file to internal; spotted my make check on armel;
thanks Riku Voipio for the report.
* New patch, 61_global-symbol-test, rewrite the public symbol check to
verify the shared libraries, to check for more things, and to avoid
duplication; fixes make check on ARM.
