Description Marek Szuba gentoo-dev 2020-12-17 13:23:05 UTC
When building Slurm on a clean system (e.g. using puremerge), its prepare phase fails with the following error:

 * Running autoconf --force ...                                                                               [ !! ]
 * Failed Running autoconf !
 * Include in your bugreport the contents of:
 *   /var/tmp/portage/sys-cluster/slurm-

 * ERROR: sys-cluster/slurm- failed (prepare phase):

whereas the aforementioned autoconf.out file reports:

***** autoconf *****
***** PWD: /var/tmp/portage/sys-cluster/slurm-
***** autoconf --force error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

The macro AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0 comes from aclocal files installed by dev-libs/glib:2 , and with that package present Slurm emerges fine.

(ignore the -r100 bit in emerge output, I have tried this -r0 as well with the same result)

    sys-cluster/slurm: migrate to lua-single.eclass
    Version compatibility as per upstream build scripts. Includes fixes
    for Bugs: 760465 (the applied patch + 'use_enable lua' in src_configure)
    and 760468 (dev-libs/glib:2 in COMMON_DEPEND), both should be directly
    applicable to the unmigrated ebuild as well. Still vulnerable to Bug
