Description Marius Caldas 2003-10-18 16:48:22 UTC
I'm configuring a dual Opteron at the office using the x86_64 live cd. All the
builds went really well until I hit xfree. The xfree build fails  with an Access
Violation message:
chmod: /xfree-4.3.0-r3/work/xc/fonts/scaleb/CID/fonts.dir
Looks to me it's a makefile issue but I don't have the time to poke around. I'd
appreciate any help.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge xfree

Actual Results:  
Access Violation message:
chmod: /xfree-4.3.0-r3/work/xc/fonts/scaleb/CID/fonts.dir

The system is a dual 2.0Ghz Opteron using the x86_64 architecture:
CFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC -pipe"

I'm not detailing HW because it doesn't seem to be relevant.
Comment 1 Marius Caldas 2003-10-18 16:55:23 UTC
Oops, the correct error message is:
chmod: /xfree-4.3.0-r3/work/xc/fonts/scaled/CID/fonts.dir
Comment 2 Brad House 2003-10-18 17:28:03 UTC
yeah, this is a known bug
if you 
cd /usr/portage/x11-base/xfree
ebuild xfree-4.3.0-r3 install
ebuild xfree-4.3.0-r3 qmerge

that will get you by for now.  Hopefully I'll have a patch
committed for that access violation this weekend.  It seems
to happen on every amd64 system we've seen, so it's definately
an amd64 bug.

Thanks Brad, that did the trick!

Hi Brad,
Got a fix for the sandbox issue yet? If it's an xfree patch, just attach it here and I'll add it to the patchset. Otherwise maybe this should be reassigned to dev-portage.
Comment 5 Brad House 2003-11-13 20:44:01 UTC
This seems to have disappeared recently.  
I have had no reports of it, and have reemerged
xfree86 multiple times recently, and on new builds
(within a chroot).  I guess whatever it was has been
resolved, I'd really be interested to know what it was
though.  I'm hesitant to close it, but you're welcome to if
other platforms appear to be ok.

Comment 6 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-11-13 21:09:21 UTC
Nothing really changed in xfree, I'd guess it's a portage issue. I'll close since it's not reproduceable.
