Description Mark Reiche 2013-02-20 19:44:19 UTC
tried to emerge util-linux-2.22.2 on x86 (uclibc); it failed in the install phase.

emerging 2.21.2 (current stable for x86) works w/o problem

Reproducible: Always

configure: WARNING: scanf string alloc modifier not found; do not build libmount
configure: WARNING: libmount disabled; do not build mount
configure: WARNING: libmount disabled; do not build fsck
configure: WARNING: libmount disabled; do not build mountpoint

It's because uclibc currently does not support the a or m dynamic allocation modifier. There's a patch for uclibc that should do the trick....

I am unable to reproduce:

The next set of stage3's that I'll push to the gentoo mirrors with experimental will have it.

> I am unable to reproduce:

That's interesting. Here, the util-linux build failed because configure checked for the scanf allocation flag, which is apparently not yet supported in uclibc

What version of uclibc do you use?
Could you please add (or send me) your build log? (or even better the config.log?)

Is there an easy way to merge that into an existing installation?
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2015-03-12 04:18:02 UTC
note: this was fixed in uClibc by implementing the %ms format
