Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-02-22 10:32:02 UTC
Your package wcd failed to build from source in current rawhide.

Build logs:
NOTE: build logs are cleaned up after 1 week

For details on mass rebuild see

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2013-02-22 11:30:46 UTC
Correct build log is:

Comment 2 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-22 12:08:30 UTC

The build fails because commands 'podchecker' and 'pod2text' are not found. These commands are part of the perl package.

The RPM file specifies a build requirement on perl.

Could it be that the perl installation was incomplete?



Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2013-02-22 12:14:01 UTC
It looks like the perl packaging has changed in Fedora devel.  I think this change might be needed for that branch:

-BuildRequires: perl
+BuildRequires: perl-Pod-Checker

This change works for me when testing with 'fedpkg mockbuild' in the devel branch.

Comment 4 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-22 14:14:00 UTC
OK, thanks. I will try it. You must have seen this too with dos2unix, because dos2unix also uses pod2text.



Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2013-02-22 14:47:01 UTC
Thanks, good catch.  There hasn't been a bug filed about that yet (perhaps the rebuild tests haven't got that far) but it also has the same issue.  I'll fix that now.

Comment 6 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-22 16:29:22 UTC

I made this change to the spec file:

-BuildRequires: perl
+BuildRequires: perl-Pod-Checker

I pushed it to the server and did a successful Koji build.

But only a mass rebuild can really prove the problem is solved, isn't it? I assume that the Koji server already had all the required packages installed before.



Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2013-02-22 17:47:54 UTC
Each build happens in its own chroot environment, and packages are installed in that environment to satisfy BuildRequires.  It's the same with 'fedpkg mockbuild', except that it happens on the local machine.

Comment 8 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-22 18:46:40 UTC

OK. I didn't know that. Then it means it is really fixed.


Comment 9 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-22 22:44:04 UTC
Do I have to close this bug now?

Comment 10 Tim Waugh 2013-02-25 10:58:55 UTC
Yes.  As this is just rawhide (Fedora devel), there is no need to push an update: having built the new package, it is automatically in Fedora devel.

You can just set the status to CLOSED with resolution RAWHIDE.  Thanks.

Comment 11 Erwin Waterlander 2013-02-25 11:34:20 UTC
Thanks. Done.
