[Bug 1351935] [NEW] Please backport modemmanager 1.0.0-2ubuntu1 (main) from trusty
Public bug reported:
Please backport modemmanager 1.0.0-2ubuntu1 (main) from trusty to
Reason for the backport:
To solve bugs like bug #1340154 and bring support for new modems to the old LTS.
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.
You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s trusty -d precise modemmanager
[ ] Package builds without modification
[ ] modemmanager installs cleanly and runs
[ ] modemmanager-dev installs cleanly and runs
[ ] libmm-glib0 installs cleanly and runs
[ ] libmm-glib-dev installs cleanly and runs
[ ] libmm-glib-doc installs cleanly and runs
[ ] modemmanager-dbg installs cleanly and runs
[ ] modemmanager-doc installs cleanly and runs
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of modemmanager. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new modemmanager. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new modemmanager installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.
[Bug 1351935] Re: Please backport modemmanager 1.0.0-2ubuntu1 (main) from trusty
Can this request for modemmanager at this stage proceed in its process to be backported? It is hoped someone can finally help action this support request... thanks.
PS: bug #1076981 not actioned since 2012 - proceeding with the above request should close this backport request consequently and provide the necessary updates and functionalities support for 12.04 LTS users
Any feedback on a timeframe possible when this can be supported? Hopefully this can be backported now rather than later so that the efforts made can serve a useful life up till 2017 or beyond for 12.04 LTS users. Cheers.
p/s Alex, could you please add your support to this backport request too? Thanks.
