Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137096
automake uses same .Tpo tmp file for both .Po and .Plo variants, creating a race condition
Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:26:49 EDT
Description of problem:
My Amanda build failed when make complained "mv: cannot stat `.deps/util.Tpo':
No such file or directory" when compiling ppc64 on cure81 (an 8-processor
machine). I asked Roland to help debug it, and he said it's an automake bug
as described in the summary.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever's in dist-fc4 buildroots, probably automake-1.9.2-3
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 105747 [details]
make output of failed build on cure81
Migrated to http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-automake/2005-01/msg00009.html
Note that this bug prevents the Amanda rpm from being rebuilt on SMP machines.
