Description Steffen 2013-06-03 16:44:15 UTC
emerge openafs-kernel fails during compilation:

  CC      /var/tmp/portage/net-fs/openafs-kernel-1.6.2/work/openafs-1.6.2/src/libafs/MODLOAD-3.8.6-hardened-MP/afspag.mod.o

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge net-fs/openafs-kernel-1.6.2 on linux-3.8.6-hardened
Actual Results:  
The compilation failed.

Expected Results:  
Openafs-kernel gets compiled successfully.

The same happens for net-fs/openafs, but a possible workaround is this fix: .
However the patch causes openafs-kernel to fail during the patch phase.

> happened for 1.6.18. again

Toralf, please, open NEW bugs if you get some problem from LONG time ago.
Package has new maintainers since, bug has an outdated description, thus it was nearly lost. Or at least update all bug's metadata to up-to-date values if you are sure that old bug should be reopened..

Is this still an issue with
Does this happens only on hardened kernels or on vanilla as well?

    net-fs/openafs: 1.8.2 version bump
    - Update to upstream version 1.8.2 and patches from 1_8_x branch
      till 20181001. This fixes some open Gentoo bugs:
        472184 (probably), 544162, 603890 (likely), 640874, 642542.
    - Merge openafs-kernel back into openafs:
      - save lots of build time (configure, compilling common code);
      - original split was required due to problems in the build system
        (e.g. -j1) which are fixed now.
      Now kernels < 4.21 are supported.
    - Add support for new features:
      - enable gssapi via kerberos;
      - allow to choose between namei and inode file servers;
      - add Tivoli TSM API support;
      - conrol ubik-read-while-write mode;
      - deprecate kauth tools (may be enabled via flag);
      - add support for perl bindings via swig;
    - Docs:
      - build api docs (using doxygen);
      - Build PDF docs, support all three generators (fop, dblatex,
    - Avoid file collision with heimdal (bug 631584).
    The client is tested on various configurations, the server is not.

Comment 8 Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2019-01-05 14:13:03 UTC
It should be fixed in openafs-1.8.2 (please note there is no separate kernel package anymore), but I have no hardened kernels to test.
