Description Alan Hamilton 2012-07-21 18:02:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to build the SRPM of libimobiledevice fails with
Error: Cython version >= 0.13.0 is required.  You have Cython version 0.16.  You should look at http://www.cython.org

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

How reproducible:
Always, with the above packages. The previous release of Cython, Cython.x86_64 0:0.15.1-2.fc17, works

Additional info:
There's an upstream bug entry for this for libimobiledevice: http://libiphone.lighthouseapp.com/projects/27916/tickets/264-error-compiling-with-cython-016_rc0

The problem is an error in parsing the version string for Cython. It fails on versions that are not in the form ##.##.## . A patch is available at http://cgit.sukimashita.com/libimobiledevice.git/commit/?id=70dfe8ad1766990386f1db04bbe5a4826bcde4e5

This patch resolves the version number error, but the package still fails to compile:

Error compiling Cython file:
        except Exception, e:
            if remapping != NULL:
    cdef inline int16_t _send(self, plist.plist_t node):

mobilesync.pxi:152:9: Overriding final methods is not allowed

I'm not aware of any patches for this issue.

http://cgit.sukimashita.com/libimobiledevice.git/commit/?id=84235e0834e57551028329723f4510e1dbe7bc11 should do the trick (testing it now)

Created attachment 603464 [details]
fixes the build

This patch fixes the package build on koji, but I don't have commit access to libimobiledevice so can't push it.

Try with git am maybe
Comment 5 Christophe Fergeau 2012-08-10 17:13:28 EDT
The patch only adds the 3 patches committed on 2012-05-17 from http://cgit.sukimashita.com/libimobiledevice.git/log/ and adds various BuildRequires to be able to run autoreconf -fi after applying the patches. The patches from git apply unchanged on the tarball we have in f18 and rawhide.
