When using the sandbox portage feature on my O2, I get the following error while emerging various different ebuilds, particularly GNU tools. Automake and coreutils are notable packages this happens to. When I removed sandbox from FEATURES in make.conf, these packages build and install just fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge coreutils
2. emerge automake
checking build system type... mips64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: ls -t appears to
fail. Make sure there is not a broken
alias in your environment
configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock
!!! ERROR: sys-devel/automake-1.8.3 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 110, Exitcode 1
!!! (no error message)
Should have installed properly.
I am running multiple mips machines. On my SGI Indy(s), I'm using a 2.4 series
32bit kernel, and sandbox works with no issues. The SGI O2 is running a 64bit
2.6 series kernel. This makes me think it's either an issue with 2.6 or with
mips64. A problem with attempting to fix this is that 2.4 will not work on an
O2. Also, mips64 and 2.6 really don't work too well on an indy to begin with.
This makes it hard to level the playing field between the machines. I plan on
attempting to build a 32bit kernel for the O2 and seeing if I can use sandbox again.
Stephen, still hitting this?
If so, re-open with a config.log of this...
