Description Florian Weimer 2024-01-05 13:40:24 UTC
The spec file contains:

%ifarch %{ix86} x86_64
# so that x86_64 builds pick up glibc32 correctly
BuildRequires: /usr/include/gnu/stubs-32.h

We plan to get rid of glibc32, so this will stop working. In addition, DNF 5 does not download file lists by default and is not able to resolve such a dependency.

I removed the BuildRequires, and I didn't see any obvious differences in the build log (particularly around autoconf results).

Reproducible: Always

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora Linux 40 development cycle.
Changing version to 40.

Comment 2 Michael Young 2024-02-17 16:14:07 UTC
I also tried disabling the glibc32 BuildRequires and couldn't see a difference in the code produced so I have dropped that BuildRequires in xen-4.18.0-5.fc40
