Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-02 14:44:13 UTC

you're receiving this canned bug because the package in summary uses the flag -Werror during build, which transforms warnings in errors, and is prone to break software when new GCC releases are added to Gentoo.

Please make sure your package does not use -Werror during build, so that it can be more future-proof for the new GCC releases.

WTF nstx is masked for removal?!

See bug 262765, it compiles with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 (default for Gentoo) and nstx-1.1_beta6-r3 works OK for me.

-Werror is not at issue for removal.
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-12-06 17:17:23 UTC
-Werror alone is not an issue for removal.

-Werror causing _FORTIFY_SOURCE build failures which are not fixed after nine months is enough of a reason for removal.

Want to save it? Become a dev or find a dev sponsoring you to proxy-maintain the package.

ebuild is fixed.
