Hi,

I'm cross-compiling usb-modeswitch-2.5.2 for ARM board and using install-static to get minimal installed size. However service fails with:
Code:
systemd[1]: Starting USB_ModeSwitch_3-1.4.2:1.0...
usb_modeswitch_dispatcher[148]: corrupted size vs. prev_size
systemd[1]: usb_modeswitch@3-1.4.2:1.0.service: Main process exited, code=killed, status=6/ABRT
systemd[1]: usb_modeswitch@3-1.4.2:1.0.service: Failed with result 'signal'.
systemd[1]: Failed to start USB_ModeSwitch_3-1.4.2:1.0.

while running
Code:
/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch_dispatcher --switch-mode 3-1.4.2:1.0

from command line works as expected. I didn't investigate where exactly problem is, but importing jimtcl-0.78 fixes above issue. Could that be done officially for next version?

It there any estimated release date for the next version? I'm not pushing on you to release immediately, just want to know for decision how to fix currently broken PTXdist package. Thank you.

Perhaps removing builtin jimtcl would be the most feasible solution after all as:
  • Debian package uses system libjim
  • RPM package uses system libjim
  • Arch is using script and depends on Tcl
  • Gentoo has option to either use system libjim or install Tcl script
Perhaps something like this could be a starting point for discussion.
