Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173978
Can't rebuild xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.EL.13.20
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:21 EST
Description of problem:
I want to add some functionality to xorg-x11, and I couldn't rebuilt the patched
src.rpm. I then tried with the original one and failed, too. The build host is
an updated RHEL4U2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rm -f scanpci
gcc -m32 -o scanpci -O2 -pipe -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -m32
-march=i386 -mtune=pentium4 -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -fno-strict-aliasing
-pipe -ansi -pedantic -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wundef
-L../../../../../exports/lib scanpci.o -L../os-support -lxf86_os -L../scanpci
-lscanpci -L../dummylib -ldummy -Wl,-rpath-link,../../../../../exports/lib
../os-support/libxf86_os.a(libc_wrapper.o)(.text+0x182d): In function
: multiple definition of `xf86getpagesize'
scanpci.o(.text+0x1a41): first defined here
/usr/bin/ld: Warning: size of symbol `xf86getpagesize' changed from 10 in
scanpci.o to 103 in ../os-support/libxf86_os.a(libc_wrapper.o)
../os-support/libxf86_os.a(libc_wrapper.o)(.text+0x1561): In function `xf86sqrt':
: undefined reference to `sqrt'
../os-support/libxf86_os.a(libc_wrapper.o)(.text+0x5): In function `xf86hypot':
: undefined reference to `hypot'
../os-support/libxf86_os.a(libc_wrapper.o)(.text+0xd7): In function `xf86strlcat':
: undefined reference to `strlcat'
Maybe the glibc update in RHEL4U2 is causing the trouble?

Setting status to "NOTABUG"
Thanks Mike, but I think you read over the bug report a bit too fast.
The issue is not "how do I patch up a src.rpm", but that the *original
unaltered* src.rpm for RHEL4U2 does not build on RHEL4U2.
It isn't NOTABUG, if the reprocability of the build isn't important at this time
I suggest to make that WONTFIX. Although a fix would be most welcome.
FWIW the rebuild on x86_64 has a different failure when collecting pieces in
%files, while FC4 and FC3 src.rpms build OK in their native environment for both
i386 and x86_64.
The package we shipped in U2 was built with U2. It rebuilds on all 7
architectures on U2 presently, and it rebuilds on U2 installed on 2 machines
locally, as well as on FC4 and rawhide.
This is not a "WONTFIX" issue, it really is "NOTABUG".
You are having a local compilation issue. Try reinstalling your OS, and
removing ccache or other things that might affect the output of your compile.
If you continue to have problems, please feel free to use Red Hat or X.Org
mailing lists to assist you in determining the root cause of your problem.
Hope this helps.
