Your package perl-SDL failed to build from source in current rawhide.

Comment 4 Yaakov Selkowitz 2014-06-12 20:02:22 UTC
FTBFS because some tests failed, but only on i686:

t/gfx_imagefilter.t ............. Failed 7/8 subtests 

The x86_64 task in the same build did succeed, however.  SDL_gfx itself, which this test relies upon, uses MMX code only on ix86.  I tried perl-SDL again using a mock build of SDL_gfx with an unconditional --disable-mmx and the testsuite passed.

So, ultimately this is an issue with SDL_gfx, or possibly even with GCC; the easiest workaround for the sake of the rebuild is to disable MMX even on ix86 in the former.

CCing SDL_gfx owner.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2014-06-13 08:24:54 UTC
Hi Yaakov,

Matthias (the SDL_gfx owner) lately does not have much time to take care of his Fedora packages, so allow me to jump in here. It seems that upstream has a new SDL_gfx release with rewritten mmx support (which now also supports x86_64), so before we use the bigger hammer and disable mmx altogether lets first try that.

I've just started a rawhide build of the new SDL_gfx and as soon as that is finished I'll start rebuilding deps including SDL_gfx. Hopefully that will resolve this FTBFS bug.



Comment 7 Hans de Goede 2014-06-13 10:04:14 UTC
Hmm, this seems to build fine on x86_64 and i686 now, but the test suite hangs on ARM. Once the ARM build has timed out, I'll go and disable the test which causes it to hang on ARM for now.

Comment 8 Hans de Goede 2014-06-13 11:29:16 UTC
With the one test for the obscure  sdlx_controller_interface disabled, it builds fine on ARM too.

I've send a mail to the arm list in case one of the arm guys wants to take a look.
