Description Luis M Wesolowski 2012-02-21 14:32:27 UTC
After updating to the latest stable gentoo-sources (currently 3.2.1-r2) and reemerging virtualbox-guest-additions, the latter package fails to build. In the meantime, I'm running the previous stable kernel version so that I don't lose the functionality afforded by the virtualbox kernel modules. The exact error is: /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-4.1.4-r1/work/VirtualBox-4.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/utils.c: In function ‘sf_init_inode’: /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-4.1.4-r1/work/VirtualBox-4.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/utils.c:113:9: error: assignment of read-only member ‘i_nlink’ /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-4.1.4-r1/work/VirtualBox-4.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/utils.c:122:9: error: assignment of read-only member ‘i_nlink’ /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-4.1.4-r1/work/VirtualBox-4.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/utils.c:132:9: error: assignment of read-only member ‘i_nlink’ Apparently, this happens with every version currently in portage, and has been solved upstream with a brief patch: https://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/39224/vbox As a regular Gentoo user, I don't know if this bug should be solved by masking the package, by supplying patches for the current stable version, or maybe by simply waiting for upstream. Thanks. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Emerge gentoo-sources version >= 3.2 2. Emerge virtualbox-guest-additions 3. Watch it fail to build Actual Results: virtualbox-guest-additions does not emerge. Expected Results: virtualbox-guest-additions should have emerged correctly.

Closing since these versions are long gone from the tree, please reopen if you have problems with the current versions. Thanks!
