Description Tomáš Hrnčiar 2021-07-13 08:26:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Package util-linux fails to build from source in Fedora rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
koji build --scratch f35 util-linux-2.37-2.fc35.src.rpm

Additional info:
This package is tracked by Koschei. See:

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2021-07-14 09:43:48 UTC
From the build.log:

checking for syscall pivot_root... SYS_pivot_root
configure: error: raw selected, but required raw.h header file not available
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.GltSyY (%build)

A difference between passing and failing build root is at <>. Probably triggered by a new kernel-headers or glibc-devel.

We are rebuilding util-linux in f35-build-side-43569 side-tag for an incompatible pcre2. I would appreciate a quick fix.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2021-07-14 14:21:37 UTC
This is triggered by upgrading kernel-headers from 5.13.0-1.fc35 to 5.14.0-0.rc1.git0.1... <linux/raw.h> (built from include/uapi/linux/raw.h) was removed.

Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2021-07-14 14:35:37 UTC
The deprecated raw driver was removed from Linux

The raw driver used to provide direct unbuffered access to block devices
before O_DIRECT was invented.  It has been obsolete for more than a

It's time to --disable-raw. If you don't object, I will do it in F35 together with all the raw hacks in a spec file.

There is another build failure:

close_range() delivered with glibc-headers-x86-2.33.9000-42.fc35.noarch has three arguments,
the last one is flags (CLOSE_RANGE_CLOEXEC or CLOSE_RANGE_UNSHARE). Since login-utils/login.c
is not multi-threaded a 0 flag is good enough.

I'll fix it. (Sorry, for the delay. I had a vacation yesterday)

disabling raw

For you convenience, this dist-git patch should disable the raw support.

Thanks. Reassigning to you.

It seems glibc added the wrapper for close_range(2). The syscall has 3 arguments even
in Linux 5.13. So I believe it's only a clash with the prototype and a definition in
include/fileutils.h should be corrected.

Comment 8 Karel Zak 2021-07-14 16:32:09 UTC
Changes in util-linux-2.37-5.fc35 (

* removed dependence on PCRE2 - hardlink is able to use libc regex.h (which is good enough for now)

* fixed the close_range() issue

* removed raw(8)

Thanks guys!
