Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-20 14:38:17 UTC
nuxwdog failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix nuxwdog 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,
nuxwdog will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
nuxwdog will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 4 Igor Raits 2018-07-23 15:26:17 UTC
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables

Suggested fix:
BuildRequires:  gcc-c++

Comment 5 Dinesh Prasanth 2018-07-23 17:13:21 UTC
Adding BuildRequires gcc-c++ fixes one issue. After adding the suggested fix:

     [exec] RPM build errors:
     [exec] + make
     [exec] /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.yoGqHW: line 69: make: command not found
     [exec] error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.yoGqHW (%build)
     [exec]     Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.yoGqHW (%build)
     [exec] Result: 1

After adding BuildRequires make, following issue arises:

    [exec] RPM build errors:
     [exec] Please specify prototyping behavior for Nuxwdogclient.xs (see perlxs manual)
     [exec] Nuxwdogclient.xs:10:10: fatal error: EXTERN.h: No such file or directory
     [exec]  #include "EXTERN.h"
     [exec]           ^~~~~~~~~~
     [exec] compilation terminated.
     [exec] make[3]: *** [Makefile.real:336: Nuxwdogclient.o] Error 1
     [exec] make[2]: *** [Makefile:401: all-local] Error 2
     [exec] make[1]: *** [Makefile:1021: all-recursive] Error 1
     [exec] make: *** [Makefile:477: all] Error 2

Comment 7 Dinesh Prasanth 2018-07-23 18:45:20 UTC
Further investigating, adding BuildRequires: perl-devel solves the issue.

Comment 8 Dinesh Prasanth 2018-07-24 18:58:08 UTC
A build was successful: nuxwdog-1.0.4-2.fc29 [1]


Comment 9 Igor Raits 2018-07-24 22:37:32 UTC
There has been at least one successfull build after this bug got created.
