Description Dave Malcolm 2005-12-02 19:49:05 UTC
Building evolution for some reason appears to be doing the equivalent of a make
-k/--keep-going i.e. it carries on after errors, only reporting a failure at the

(This is a pain because a build typically takes up to 45 minutes and I'd like to
know immediately when it dies; I turned this on myself when fixing up missing
declarations, but I thought I'd turned it off)
evolution-2.4.2 is doing this; I think I've seen it with 2.4.1 as well

Would -Wfatal-errors help?

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-26 04:51:21 UTC
... he wonders to himself since Dave is probably no longer interested.

Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2007-03-26 18:04:16 UTC
mbarnes: so are you seeing this behaviour, or was it just me?

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-26 19:44:12 UTC
Maybe.  When building packages I usually just dump the output to a file and sift
through it once rpmbuild finally aborts.  The error usually appears somewhere in
the middle of the file.

But I've not seen this when building from GNOME CVS/Subversion.  Compilation
errors abort immediately, as expected.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-31 13:27:01 UTC
I think this might be related to the RPM builds using multiple processors. 
Compilation on one processor fails but the other ones finish their tasks before
noticing the other processor has failed.  I don't know, just a guess.

In any case, I usually just dump build output to a log file and look at that for
errors, so this isn't really getting in my way.  Closing as WONTFIX just to get
it off my bug list.
