Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-19 18:36:57 UTC
cwm failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

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

Comment 4 Bruno Meneguele 2018-07-19 19:26:03 UTC
Hmm... that's a bit weird, but I don't think it's cwm package error... from build.log:

+ make -j4
cc -c -Wall -O2 -g -D_GNU_SOURCE `pkg-config --cflags x11 xft xrandr` calmwm.c
cc -c -Wall -O2 -g -D_GNU_SOURCE `pkg-config --cflags x11 xft xrandr` screen.c
cc -c -Wall -O2 -g -D_GNU_SOURCE `pkg-config --cflags x11 xft xrandr` xmalloc.c
/bin/sh: cc: command not found
make: *** [Makefile:37: calmwm.o] Error 127
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
/bin/sh: cc: command not found
make: *** [Makefile:37: screen.o] Error 127
/bin/sh: cc: command not found

Is there more packages failing with such error, because it seems the buildroot is lacking the compiler. Am I missing something?

Comment 5 Bruno Meneguele 2018-07-20 17:44:31 UTC
Ok, sorry about that.. just realized I missed this info:

Will update the package adding BuildRequires: gcc.


Comment 6 Bruno Meneguele 2018-07-20 17:55:24 UTC
Package updated as pointed in comment#5.
