wcd: FTBFS in rawhide
Last modified: 2013-02-25 06:34:20 EST
Your package wcd failed to build from source in current rawhide.
NOTE: build logs are cleaned up after 1 week
For details on mass rebuild see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_19_Mass_Rebuild
Correct build log is:
The build fails because commands 'podchecker' and 'pod2text' are not found. These commands are part of the perl package.
The RPM file specifies a build requirement on perl.
Could it be that the perl installation was incomplete?
It looks like the perl packaging has changed in Fedora devel. I think this change might be needed for that branch:
This change works for me when testing with 'fedpkg mockbuild' in the devel branch.
OK, thanks. I will try it. You must have seen this too with dos2unix, because dos2unix also uses pod2text.
Thanks, good catch. There hasn't been a bug filed about that yet (perhaps the rebuild tests haven't got that far) but it also has the same issue. I'll fix that now.
I made this change to the spec file:
I pushed it to the server and did a successful Koji build.
But only a mass rebuild can really prove the problem is solved, isn't it? I assume that the Koji server already had all the required packages installed before.
Each build happens in its own chroot environment, and packages are installed in that environment to satisfy BuildRequires. It's the same with 'fedpkg mockbuild', except that it happens on the local machine.
OK. I didn't know that. Then it means it is really fixed.
Do I have to close this bug now?
Yes. As this is just rawhide (Fedora devel), there is no need to push an update: having built the new package, it is automatically in Fedora devel.
You can just set the status to CLOSED with resolution RAWHIDE. Thanks.
