Debian 13 will use the 64-bit time_t type on 32-bit architectures

Recommended Posts

The developers have published (https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2024/02/msg00000.html) a plan to convert all packages to use the 64-bit time_t type in distribution ports for 32-bit architectures. The changes will be part of the Debian 13 "Trixie" distribution, which will fully address the 2038 issue.

Of the 35960 packages shipped in Debian, the time_t type occurs in 6429 and affects over 1200 libraries.

Once the experimental branch has resolved all post-translation issues, new variants of the "abi=time64" libraries will be uploaded to the unstable repository.
