Description Mark Burchard 2009-04-15 15:32:00 UTC
The build script switches from gcc to cc while making the snmp_common modules, and then fails:

"mibs-ietf/nsm-mib.c", line 298: undefined symbol: __FUNCTION__
cc: acomp failed for mibs-ietf/nsm-mib.c
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536
make[1]: *** [libsnmpmonagt.so] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/product_connectors/apache-snmp/sources/snmp2.0/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Examples of the mixed compilers from a failed build log:

/var/apache2/build/libtool --silent --mode=compile /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc <snip>mibs-ietf/nsm-mib.slo

/bin/sh ../../libtool --mode=compile gcc <snip> module-cmd-table.lo

The common Support answer to this is to unset CC, but would be better if the script could be modified to account for this.

Comment 1 Mark Burchard 2009-04-15 15:33:35 UTC
Attaching 2.0_log, from customer case https://enterprise.redhat.com/issue-tracker/284949

Comment 2 Mark Burchard 2009-04-15 15:40:23 UTC
Possible something along the lines of:

unset CC
unset CFLAGS
export PATH

Comment 3 Mark Burchard 2009-04-15 23:34:20 UTC
Ok, I've figured this out (I think) and it's not the build_apache_snmp.sh script.  It's the configure script for snmp_common/ucd-snmp.

Here it's testing for Solaris machines for cc in the path, so that it can throw an error asking the user to run configure --with-cc=gcc:

for ac_dir in $ac_dummy; do
    test -z "$ac_dir" && ac_dir=.
    if test -f $ac_dir/$ac_word; then
      if test "$ac_dir/$ac_word" = "/usr/ucb/cc"; then

However, this user has cc in /opt/SUNWspro/bin/ , so the test fails (and then the make)

I would think that it would make more sense to do something like checking for cc in the user's path, but we didn't write net-snmp :)

Now to figure out how to fix this in our build script. I assume it would be yea simple to just add the --with-cc=gcc to it, like so:

cd snmp_common/ucd-snmp
${MAKE} clean >/dev/null 2>&1
                CFLAGS=${CFLAGS} \
                ./configure --with-cc=gcc...

Comment 4 Mark Burchard 2009-04-15 23:47:31 UTC
Also curious why we do a prepare for everything except ucd-snmp:

 echo "Preparing sdbm..."
    echo "Preparing smi..."
    echo "Preparing Apache ${VERSION}.

Not sure if that is exactly relevant to this problem, since it's the config evaluation that fails in the first place...

Comment 5 Mark Burchard 2009-05-01 14:31:14 UTC
On a fresh, full solaris 10 install, this is failing, not surprising due to Sun's cc lacking some compile features.

However, I've created an entire build environment with SFW/GNU packages, in /usr/local, and put /usr/local/bin first in my path.

SFW packages:

*"--mode=compile /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc"*

I cannot for the life of me figure out why it all of the sudden calls cc, when the build up to that point has been using GNU GCC...

Comment 6 Mark Burchard 2009-05-01 17:42:32 UTC
Attaching latest build log (2.0_log_20090501)

Comment 7 Charles Crouch 2009-05-18 22:20:13 UTC
Making critical to make sure it gets triaged

Comment 8 Mark Burchard 2009-05-21 15:21:37 UTC
Customer is also getting the exact same error on Solaris 9, so perhaps this is not just a 5.10 issue.

We definitely need to document the correct build environment per OS if we're going to ship this script.

Push to  1.4

Comment 11 Mark Burchard 2009-08-10 01:45:54 UTC
Well, I found one concrete bug in the script.  Under "building Apache module"

Bad option --with-netsnmp, should be "--with-net-snmp"

elif [ ${VERSION} = "2.0" ] || [ ${VERSION} = "2.2" ]; then
    # We have to run remake_status before building.  If we don't, then the build
    # will fail, because remake_status may not be able to find perl.  We solve
    # this by doing a `which perl` above.
    cd snmp${SRC_VERSION}
    ${MAKE} clean >/dev/null 2>&1
                 ./configure \
                --with-dynamic-snmp-agt="${APXS}" \
                --with-netsnmp="${CWD}/snmp_common/ucd-snmp" \          <--------------- ***should be "--with-net-snmp"***

Comment 12 Mark Burchard 2009-08-10 04:04:15 UTC
Just noticed something critical in Mladen's comment:

"$cc -V
cc: Sun C 5.9 SunOS_i386 Patch 124868-01 2007/07/12
usage: cc [ options] files. Use 'cc -flags' for details "

For me, cc -V returns:

/usr/ucb/cc:  language optional software package not installed

Perhaps what I'm missing is the Sun Studio Compiler (/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc)?

If that file is missing the build fails every time with "file not found" error of some sort.  Setting CC=gcc gets you further, but one way or another, during the module build the script will error out.

If you're using the SUN-supplied libtool in /usr/apache2/build, it wants the SUNWspro compiler, which I don't have.   I've been getting around that by trying to swap in gcc, but that makes the SUN/Apache libtool angry.   I need to try this with SunStudio installed to see if I can get it to work with a unified SUN compiler environment, but it's late and my VBox/Solaris10 test box just locked up on me, so I'll try this tomorrow.

Comment 13 Ian Springer 2009-08-10 14:41:34 UTC
Mark, I checked in the --with-netsnmp fix - JON r10528.

Comment 14 Mark Burchard 2009-08-14 16:07:40 UTC
Success!  I was finally able to get this to compile!  This was using GNU gcc, I'm testing a build with CC=cc now.

Comment 15 Mark Burchard 2009-08-14 17:43:06 UTC
I was also able to build using CC=cc with the exact same environment as above.

Comment 16 Mark Burchard 2009-08-14 18:50:43 UTC
And it works!  (module compiled with CC=cc)

Temporarily adding the keyword "SubBug" so we can be sure we have accounted for all the bugs.

new = Tracking + FutureFeature + SubBug

Comment 20 wes hayutin 2010-02-16 16:57:59 UTC
making sure we're not missing any bugs in rhq_triage

Comment 22 Heiko W. Rupp 2010-07-08 12:04:07 UTC
The --with-net-snmp vs --with-netsnmp commit from comment 13 seems to be a critical change, as with --with-netsnmp allows to compile on RHEL 5

Comment 23 Heiko W. Rupp 2010-07-09 11:25:43 UTC
r10793 adds a switch for Solaris that defaults to the RHEL behaviour
