Current glibc builds break building KDE
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:00:38 EST
Description of Problem:
As soon as glibc 2.2.90-5 or 2.2.90-6 are installed, all KDE packages fail to
build because am_edit (part of KDE) starts outputting bad makefiles.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try building any KDE package
make just says "docs-am: Nothing to do"
make builds the whole package
2.2.90-3 worked, didn't try 2.2.90-4
automake generates proper Makefile.in files, then am_edit is run. Usually, it
just edits the Makefile.in files, with current glibcs, it deletes them and
Just tried, 2.2.90-4 is broken as well. 2.2.90-3 is the last version that works.
You'll probably want to try it using the arts package, it doesn't require a
whole KDE development environment.
