Description craven 2009-06-07 13:12:00 UTC
When using several make jobs to build gnome-base/orbit-2.14.16, the application fails to link, as the library libname-server-2.a is not yet present when needed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set MAKEOPTS="-j3 -l 1.5" in /etc/make.conf
2. run emerge -1 =gnome-base/orbit-2.14.16
3. wait for build to fail

setting MAKEOPTS="-j1 -l 1.5" fixes the problem. I suggest to filter the MAKEOPTS in the ebuild or to patch the Makefile to correctly include all dependencies.

Are you able to reproduce this? I have never suffered it. Please also provide a new build.log in that case

Can you try disabling ccache?

Sorry, should have tested that. Same build failure without ccache

Incidentally, this only affects one of my two amd64 machines; on the other, it works with -j5 (on the non-building machine, only -j1 works)

As this is no longer developer by upstream, a patch for fixing this would be nice

This patch seems to fix it:

Comment 15 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2014-06-25 19:41:58 UTC
I am unsure if we should simply kill static-libs and always build with --disable-static :/
Comment 16 Michael Haubenwallner gentoo-dev 2014-06-26 10:31:17 UTC
libname-server-2.a is not built with libtool, so --disable-static has no influence here.
Comment 17 Michael Haubenwallner gentoo-dev 2014-07-08 07:17:48 UTC
Fixed in orbit-2.14.19-r4.
