Description D. Marlin 2016-07-01 21:10:01 UTC
Description of problem:

multilib-rpm-config fails to build from source for Fedora EPEL7 on RHELSA-7.2.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  On a RHELSA-7.2 host:
     mock -r epel-7-aarch64 multilib-rpm-config-1-5.el7.src.rpm

Actual results:

+ pwd
+ sh /builddir/build/BUILD/multilib-rpm-config-1/tests/../multilib-info --multilib-capable
+ cp -r template really-works
+ sh /builddir/build/BUILD/multilib-rpm-config-1/tests/../multilib-fix --buildroot /builddir/build/BUILD/multilib-rpm-config-1/tests --file /really-works/header.h
INFO: multilib-fix: we don't need multilib haeder hack for 'aarch64' architecture (no-op)
+ gcc really-works/main.c
+ ./a.out

RPM build errors:
+ test -f 'really-works/header-*.h'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.IjDQYI (%check)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.IjDQYI (%check)

Expected results:

builds without errors.

Additional info:

Despite the fact that multilib-rpm-config is in koji for Fedora 24 secondary arch (AArch64):

I tried building it (multilib-rpm-config-1-5.fc24) in mock on AArch64:

  curl -O
  mock -r fedora-24-aarch64 multilib-rpm-config-1-5.fc24.src.rpm

but it fails with the same error.

Comment 1 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-07-01 21:31:40 UTC
noarch packages are not rebuild in secondary kojis, they are just imported from primary.  Therefore, the supposed success of the arm-koji build does not prove anything.

Comment 2 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-07-01 21:47:50 UTC
Reassigning to Fedora, as it too is affected and the epel package is kept in sync therewith.

Comment 3 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-07-01 22:04:01 UTC
Created attachment 1175129 [details]
dist-git patch

Comment 4 Pavel Raiskup 2016-07-02 06:38:19 UTC
Thanks!  Pushed to el5+ and f22+.  I guess build is not needed.

Comment 5 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-07-08 02:00:17 UTC
An epel7 build is required for CentOS's rebuild of EPEL for alternative arches.
