Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-20 00:58:09 UTC
mosh failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

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

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.

I tried to run mosh-1.3.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm but I kept getting this error:
mosh-server: symbol lookup error: mosh-server: undefined symbol: _ZNK6google8protobuf11MessageLite25InitializationErrorStringEv
Connection to closed.
/usr/bin/mosh: Did not find mosh server startup message. (Have you installed mosh on your server?)

Signature   : RSA/SHA256, Sun 26 Mar 2017 02:28:23 PM PDT, Key ID 6a2faea2352c64e5
Source RPM  : mosh-1.3.0-1.el7.src.rpm
Build Date  : Sun 26 Mar 2017 02:25:46 PM PDT
Build Host  :

I downloaded the source package and tried to build it, and it failed in the configuration step, with 'cpp failed sanity check'.

By installing gcc-g++, (yum install -y gcc-c++), I was able to rebuild the package and get mosh running.

The mosh spec file needs to specify a build dependency on gcc-g++, I think.
