Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-19 23:27:18 UTC
libgda failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix libgda at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
libgda will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
libgda will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 4 Jan Kurik 2018-08-14 09:27:35 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.

Comment 5 Fabio Valentini 2018-09-03 20:35:15 UTC
Haïkel, please respond, this package has been FTBFS since fedora 25, and it's been causing issues for some time.

If there is no response within a week I will start the non-responsive maintainer process:

Comment 6 Fabio Valentini 2018-10-21 10:09:15 UTC
In the meantime, upstream developers have released versions 5.2.5 and 5.2.6, which include a multitude of bug fixes.

I managed to get it to compile on fedora, minus a segfaulting itstool somewhere in the build process.

Comment 7 Kalev Lember 2018-12-04 17:39:12 UTC
I've spent some time today working on libgda and making it build again. The itstool issue still remains (I did some build system hackery to build it with an older itstool), but otherwise it should now be in a bit less sorry state. Feel free to open PRs and CC me there if there's anything else you'd like fixed there (I'm not libgda maintainer, just doing drive by fixes).
