so what s different between these sources and what you would get if you downloaded one from the authors home page ??
My guess is that these sources are patched to work with whatever system is targeted for. A further guess would be that the patches are mostly targeting the c1000 series of zaurii.
I am no authority on the matter, but I wanted to keep this discussion alive. Would someone more knowledgeable care to comment on the issue?
It is just to keep all packages in a central location.
They aren't pre-patched... they are patched in the build process...
Now you *CAN* build with out using the distro.ibiblio.org/pub/blah/blah blah...
"./configure akita-***" and it will pull from the author but some of the links have changed and you may run into more errors then you can handle so it is best to use what we provide :-)
