Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-20 21:06:07 UTC
wcd failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

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

Comment 4 Erwin Waterlander 2018-07-21 15:06:25 UTC
The environment sets variable CC to "cc", which makes the build break:

make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [Makefile:532: wcd.o] Error 127
make: Leaving directory '/builddir/build/BUILD/wcd-6.0.2/src'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.BZ0pdn (%build)

This is an environment problem.

When CC is set in the build environment, it must be set to a compiler command that is available.

Comment 5 Igor Raits 2018-07-23 11:16:48 UTC
make: cc: Command not found

Suggested fix:
BuildRequires:  gcc

Comment 6 Igor Raits 2018-07-24 22:48:21 UTC
There has been at least one successfull build after this bug got created.


Comment 7 Erwin Waterlander 2018-07-30 22:04:53 UTC
