Description Debarshi Ray 2009-04-19 22:32:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Flex fails to build from source in Rawhide because one two of the checks in
its test-suite fails to build.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ fedora-cvs coredumper
2. $ cd coredumper/F-11
3. $ make scratch-build
Actual results:
Flex fails to build from source.

Expected results:
Flex should build successfully.

Additional info:
The generated C++ lexers refers to EOF, but Flex does not add a '#include <cstdio>', which it should. This causes a build failure with GCC 4.4.

Comment 3 Petr Machata 2009-04-20 07:31:22 EDT
Thanks.  It's in the CVS and scratch build was tested.  I won't build it officially, since we are in devel freeze, unless I get explicit waiver.
Comment 4 Milos Jakubicek 2009-04-20 08:50:36 EDT
As there are no F11 build of flex at all, you should perform a normal build and request a freeze break, please follow https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/FinalFreezePolicy.
Comment 5 Petr Machata 2009-04-20 11:26:21 EDT
After reviewing goals of mass rebuild, I think it would be advantageous for flex to be rebuilt too.  Filed:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
