Issues with using rpm --rcfile
I've encountered a couple of issues with using rpm --rcfile "/usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc:./rpmrc" like several of the Makefiles do. I'm assuming these are unique to Mandriva and the fact we're one of the few using bleeding edge rpm (4.4.6 on cooker atm).
As a user, say "stew", I was seeing a long dealy before any actual building would start. Turns out using strace, that rpm is going out try to contact hkp://sks.keyserver.penguin.de, which apparently isn't there. The difference is, under "normal" rpm usage on Mandriva, you get:
but when using --rcfile as above, you get:
So the workaround for me was to add "%_hkp_keyserver_query %nil" to the local rpmmacros in the build directory.
As root (which runtime-test requires), I have a different problem:
rpm --rcfile "/usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc:./rpmrc" --define "_sourcedir ./" -bp lsb-runtime-test.spec rpmdb: configured environment flags incompatible with existing environment error: db4 error(22) from dbenv->open: Invalid argument error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Invalid argument (22) error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
Apparently there is an incompatibility with the /var/lib/rpm/__db.00* files created using /usr/lib/rpm/mandriva/rpmrc vs /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc. This can be worked around by doing:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
Before the build. You have to do it again after the build to be able to use rpm/urpmi to install packages etc.
"silent" failure of vsth_rtd.o in runtime-test build
I happened to see a gcc error go by in building lsb-runtime test. Unfortunately, this didn't stop the build or packaging. I went back and captured the output in a logfile and you see:
/usr/bin/cc -I/home/tet/test_sets/SRC/../../inc/tet3 -I../../INC -I../../SYSINC -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -c -o vsth_rtd.o vsth_rtd.c In file included from vsth_rtd.c:26: ../../SYSINC/ndbm.h:7: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'dbm_fetch' ../../SYSINC/ndbm.h:8: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'dbm_firstkey' ../../SYSINC/ndbm.h:10: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'dbm_nextkey' ../../SYSINC/ndbm.h:11: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before '*' token make: *** [vsth_rtd.o] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/home/tet/test_sets/SRC/common/vsthlib'
It looks like this earlier problem is the clue:
*** Starting ndbm.h Missing #include file: ndbm.h *** Completed ndbm.h
Installing lib64gdbm3-devel, which provides /usr/include/gdbm/ndbm.h solved the problem.
