Description David Aquilina 2012-11-02 16:07:22 UTC
Description of problem:

systemd-195-2.fc18 fails to build on ppc: 


build log: http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=772982&name=build.log 

Notably, it only fails to build on ppc - a ppc64 scratch build succeeded just fine ( http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=773046 )

Comment 1 Michal Schmidt 2012-11-09 13:05:16 UTC
The relevant errors from the log:

src/journal/journald-syslog.o: In function `server_process_syslog_message':
/builddir/build/BUILD/systemd-195/src/journal/journald-syslog.c:403: undefined reference to `server_dispatch_message'
/builddir/build/BUILD/systemd-195/src/journal/journald-syslog.c:373: undefined reference to `server_forward_kmsg'
/builddir/build/BUILD/systemd-195/src/journal/journald-syslog.c:376: undefined reference to `server_forward_console'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [test-journal-syslog] Error 1

It appears that test-journal-syslog does not have all dependencies properly described in Makefile.am. I don't know yet how the correct fix should look, but as a quick workaround I can disable the build of this test program.

Comment 2 Michal Schmidt 2012-11-09 13:31:32 UTC

you added test-journal-syslog in upstream. Could you fix this build error properly? Thanks!

Meanwhile I disabled test-journal-syslog in systemd-195-6.

Comment 6 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2012-11-13 13:56:32 UTC
Hi Michal,
I have a patch ready (attached above), which I think should fix the build issue, but I don't want to commit it without testing. Is it possible for me to request a test build on ppc?


Comment 7 Michal Schmidt 2012-11-13 15:04:27 UTC
Everyone with an account in FAS can do a scratch build on PPC. Try these instructions:

By the way, I believe you'll be able to reproduce the build error even on x86_64 if you remove "-ffunction-sections" from CFLAGS in configure.ac.
