Description Fedora Release Engineering 2019-02-11 21:39:40 UTC
gnome-libs failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f30


For details on the mass rebuild see:

Please fix gnome-libs at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
gnome-libs will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 31,
gnome-libs will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 4 Paul Howarth 2019-02-12 15:48:34 UTC
There were a number of issues causing the package to fail to build:

1. Some i686-specific assembler code in glib.h that wasn't liked by gcc 9 (fixed in glib)
2. Upstream's use of LDFLAGS instead of LIBS in a configure check broke with --as-needed
3. An arm-specific configure check for detecting files as shared libraries was broken when the file command detected some shared libraries as executables (which is expected now)

I also fixed a couple of issues flagged by compiler warnings whilst I was fixing the FTBFS:

1. Fix memset() argument order in gnome-metadata.c
2. _BSD_SOURCE is deprecated, use _DEFAULT_SOURCE instead
