Description Arun Raghavan (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-29 07:55:20 UTC
The following error turns up during the configure step:

checking for mutexes... (cached) no
configure: error: Unable to find a mutex implementation

The culprit seems to be the following (no-longer necessary?) line from /usr/share/crossdev/linux/linux-gnueabi:

db_cv_mutex=${db_cv_mutex=no}
db_cv_posixmutexes=${db_cv_posixmutexes=no}
db_cv_uimutexes=${db_cv_uimutexes=no}
db_cv_mutex=${db_cv_mutex=POSIX/pthreads/library/arm/gcc-assembly}

I just stumbled into the same problem. Is there any fix?
Comment 2 Krzysztof Borowczyk 2014-07-04 08:32:31 UTC
For me it fails for version 4.8.30
Comment 3 Krzysztof Borowczyk 2014-07-04 09:32:18 UTC
Commenting the lines suggested by Arun Raghaven resolved the issue, sys-libs/db compiled without errors
