Description Robert Baron 2019-07-16 17:35:41 UTC
Description of problem:

I only selected a component because of Bugzilla's limitation.  not sure which component glusterfs is.

When building glusterfs on RHEL7 (ppc64le) I had to the following errors:

1) In the glusterfs director, if I use ./configure without any options, I get the following error when I build it:

    rpcsvc.c: In function 'rpcsvc_callback_build_record':
    rpcsvc.c:1197:5: error: implicit declaration of function 'xdr_sizeof' [-
        xdr_size = xdr_sizeof((xdrproc_t)xdr_callmsg, &request); 

This can be worked around by using the following:

    ./configure --with-ipv6-default

It seems to that if you have the option, then it should work with or without the option.

2) On 2 of the three systems I compiled release-6 of gluster I had the following issue:

      CCLD     cloudsyncs3.la
      .libs/libcloudsyncs3.o: In function `aws_sign_request':
        glusterfs/xlators/features/cloudsync/src/cloudsync-plugins/src/cloudsyncs3/src/libcloudsyncs3.c:317: undefined reference to `HMAC_CTX_new'
        glusterfs/xlators/features/cloudsync/src/cloudsync-plugins/src/cloudsyncs3/src/libcloudsyncs3.c:326: undefined reference to `HMAC_CTX_free'
         collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

This seems to be defined in libssl/libcrypt.  Since I built openssl, I check that that pig-config was returning the correct information.

I wound up editing the following Makefile:


and changing:

    CFLAGS = -g -O2 


    CFLAGS = -g -O2 -lssl -lcrypt -I/usr/local/include/openssl/ -L/usr/local/lib/

Which resolved the linker error.

How reproducible:

The first problem happened on all three systems.  The second problem happened on 2 of the three systems, so is probably less reproducible.

Here is the sequence of commands I ran on each of the systems

Hi Robert, thanks for the report.

Consider it is RHEL7, can you check if './configure --without-libtirpc' works for errors in 1? 

About 2, looks like it is a valid error. Susant, can you please send a patch if Robert's suggestion makes sense?

Comment 2 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2019-07-22 13:02:31 UTC
On RHEL7 and CentOS7 you must use --without-libtirpc to configure and build.

Glusterfs-6 is built with python2 on RHEL7 and CentOS7 and uses python2 explicitly at run-time.

You can install python3 for other things, but gluster won't use it.

You can get userspace-rcu RPMs from the CentOS Storage SIG. (You can get glusterfs packages from there as well.)

On a CentOS box you can do `yum -y install centos-release-gluster6` followed by `yum -y install userspace-rcu-devel`

Comment 3 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2019-08-05 12:55:26 UTC
openssl-devel is in RHEL base (rhel-7-server-rpms repo)  No need to build from source.

You can get userspace-rcu(-devel) from EPEL or the CentOS Storage SIG. (yes, even for ppc64le, see http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7.6.1810/storage/ppc64le/gluster-6/)  But build from source if you wish.

Closing as WORKSFORME. Reopen if necessary.
