Description James Taylor 2014-12-26 07:08:45 UTC
Created attachment 392410 [details]

NGINX includes glibc-specific code to work around some issues in glibc, and as such fails to build under musl.

This patch surrounds the code in #ifdef __GLIBC__ .. #endif to prevent it being built under musl.

I have already submitted the fix upstream, which has been accepted.

Reproducible: Always

Hi can you make this into a single commit against the hardened-dev::musl overlay.  Its worth taking the time to learn this since it makes my life easy and I'll just shoot your commits in as soon as I get and review them.  Otherwise I got to piece stuff together.

Its not hard:

1. git clone git://

2. git checkout musl

3. add the ebuild and patches etc.  make sure the ebuild has rev version -r99.  look at other ebuilds in that overlay for examples.  reduce the KEYWORDS to just the musl supported arches.  don't include the ChangeLog, its not really necessary.

4. git add -A .

5. git commit -m "<cat>/<pkg>: fixed to build on musl"  obviously change <cat> and <pkg> and make "fixed ..." as precise as possible

6. git format-patch HEAD^

7. attack to the bug.

8. profit!

Thanks for helping out!

This contains the fix from upstream that I've backported from the nginx-1.7.10 release (as submitted prior)
