Description Ville Skyttä 2009-07-31 19:10:51 UTC
rakarrack is not built with $RPM_OPT_FLAGS and thus lacks compiler security features and -g resulting in a useless debuginfo package.

There's also something else apparently wrong with the build (maybe some outdated generated files?); after running configure the build ends up invoking autotools and running configure internally again; this might be the root cause.  I haven't checked this, just peeked at the build logs.

Thanks Ville, for pointing that out. Just back from vacation, should get a chance to look at it this weekend, Dave.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Or maybe this year!

I confirmed that gdb considers -debuginfo useless. Taking a further look.

No success with understanding what is going wrong. Asked upstream:

Comment 6 David Timms 2010-01-07 14:25:09 UTC
Fixed in build rakarrack-0.3.0-5.fc13

Ville: could you please confirm both proper build and operation, if you get a few moments ?

Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2010-01-07 16:42:51 UTC
That one seems better, however it still passes some gcc flags that might cause problems: I think I've heard -fomit-frame-pointer making the debug info pretty much useless, and -msse2 in the i686 build probably makes the package not work on non-SSE2 x86 boxes (should not be an issue for the x86_64 build, and might be desirable there).

It also still has the problem that it ends up invoking autotools 2nd time after configure which may at least in theory result in our CFLAGS being lost if autotools happen to be installed (look for lines following the first "+ /usr/bin/make -j4" in the build logs).

Also, %configure --disable-dependency-tracking could make the build logs somewhat more readable and result in possible slight build speedups.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2010-11-04 10:38:01 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 9 Ville Skyttä 2010-11-04 16:11:14 UTC
Looks like "-msse2 -mfpmath=sse" is the only remaining issue in 0.5.8-2.fc14


Comment 10 David Timms 2011-05-11 11:05:16 UTC
By default configure optimizes for the machine it is building upon. I've added arch specific configure options to enable the best options for Fedora x86 and x86_64 compiles. While not strictly using only the Fedora CxxFLAGS, it appears all the correct executable security related items are being passed. Comments ?
