Bugs

  • cleanup toolchain.

xargs (dh_fixperms)

  • update 2006-07-31: fails on 2.2.x kernels, requeue on buildd with newer kernel.
  • We've routed around this by upgrading all our buildds.
  • 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

  • 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

?Anchor(binnmu)

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.
