Description Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-06 18:30:21 UTC
laby failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f32

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix laby 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,
laby will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 33,
laby will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 4 Ben Cotton 2020-02-11 17:04:03 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.

Comment 5 Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-16 04:31:42 UTC
Dear Maintainer,

your package has not been built successfully in 32. Action is required from you.

If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate [1]. If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages [2], your package
will be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

A week before the mass branching of Fedora 33 according to the schedule [3],
any packages not successfully rebuilt at least on Fedora 31 will be
retired regardless of the status of this bug.


Comment 6 Sandro Bonazzola 2020-02-28 08:56:36 UTC
I'll try to get this building again but upstream project looks more or less dead.

Comment 7 Sandro Bonazzola 2020-03-28 09:26:26 UTC
reported upstream:

Comment 8 Sandro Bonazzola 2020-03-28 09:28:52 UTC
rjones, can you help here? My ocaml skills are nearly not existent.

Comment 9 Richard W.M. Jones 2020-03-28 09:45:43 UTC
It compiles fine from git.  It seems that the Fedora version doesn't
compile because it is missing this commit:

TBH my suggestion is that you just move directly to packaging
git releases, since 0.6.4 even with patches is 6 years old.

Comment 10 Sandro Bonazzola 2020-04-13 15:55:13 UTC
Thanks Richard, fixed.
