  • Tracking the numerous gcc bugs at ?DebianM68kGcc.

  • mathinline is glibc (libc6-dev), 4.0.2-3 (20051109)
    • (20060730) fixed in 2.3.6-15 with much thanks to Roger Leigh.
    • debian bts #[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=340871 340871] on libc6-dev (trivial case in report) - bug closed Mon, 24 Jul 2006 by Aurelien Jarno

    • > /usr/include/bits/mathinline.h:128: error: declaration of 'double atan(double)' throws different exceptions

    • workaround: drop to less than -O1 or drop -pedantic (so USE_EXTERN_INLINES doesn't get defined)

    • pkgs: slgsl_0.5.2-1, php4-vpopmail_4.3.4-5.4.4+2, libgig_2.0.d2-1, highlight_2.4.2-1, blackbox_0.70.0-5, darkice_0.16-1 log4cpp_0.3.4b-1 libgig
  • libgstreamer hangs during installation (sometimes)

xargs (dh_fixperms)

  • update 2006-07-31: fails on 2.2.x kernels, requeue on buildd with newer kernel.
  • Looks something like

{{{> > dh_fixperms > > chown: cannot access > > `dedebian/libcommoncpp2-dev/usr/include/cc++2/cc++/common.h': No such file > > or directory chown: cannot access `TERM=unknown': No such file or directory > > dh_fixperms: command returned error code}}}

  • The offending command in dh_fixperms is find debian/caudium -print0 2>/dev/null | xargs -0r chown --no-dereference 0:0, with xargs being the culprit

  • Packages known to fail: libcommoncpp2_1.3.19-1, caudium_2:1.4.7-5, mozilla_2:1.7.11-1, openssl097_0.9.7g-4, exiv2_0.7-9.1, pike7.6_7.6.53-1, tex4ht_20051130-1, craft_3.5-11, log4cxx_0.9.7-3+b1

  • Workaround: build under kernel 2.4 or better
  • debian bug #336461 (findutils/xargs) seems suspiciously similar
  • similar problem?
    • packagesearch_2.0.5: Built fine on aahz (with 2.6.14), but failed on tanda (with 2.2.25):
      • strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note debian/packagesearch/usr/bin/packagesearch strip: Unable to recognise the format of the input file `debian/packagesearch/usr/bin/packagesearch' dh_strip: command returned error code 256

time-stamp skew

  • A missing automake build-dep may instead be time-stamp skew.
  • Search for skew in /usr/share/doc/autotools-dev/README.Debian.gz


binNMU notes

  • example to register dpkg_1.13.11 for a dpkg_1.13.11+b1 binNMU:

wanna-build -b m68k/build-db -d unstable -m "Rebuild with g++-4.0 for C++ +transition." --binNMU=1 dpkg_1.13.11

  • --binNMU=2 for second binNMU.
  • example to deregister any pending binNMU and return to Installed state:

wanna-build -b m68k/build-db -d unstable --binNMU=0 dpkg_1.13.11

Build Priority Notes

  • example usage to set one-time higher build-priority

wanna-build -b i386/build-db -d unstable --build-priority=1 xorg-x11_6.8.2.dfsg.1-7

  • example usage to set one-time lower build-priority

wanna-build -b i386/build-db -d unstable --build-priority=-1 xorg-x11_6.8.2.dfsg.1-7

  • For permanent build priorities, use --perm-build-priority instead of --build-priority

Not-For-Us Notes

  • to remove something from the not-for-us list, use --forget.
  • to move it from n-f-u to nb, use --forget, -o --take, --give-back.
