emerge --info for system

Trying to build "plasma-meta" for new KDE5, parted fails to compile.

attaching "emerge --info" and build log

It is complaining about an implicit definition of the "major" macro. The only place I find that is in "/usr/include/sys/sysmacros.h" which seems not to be included anywhere in the chain at the moment. [XOSlib would, but I don't see it.]

proposed patch to correct missing major() minor() macro definitions

Something caused parted to no longer include sysmacros.h (probably was a side efect before).   This just explicitly brings in the <sys/sysmacros.h> for
libparted/arch/linux.c    It could also go in linux.h alternatively.
Comment 3 Marcin Kowalski 2016-04-15 17:05:36 UTC
I am seeing the same problem in cryptsetup-1.7.1 atm.
Comment 4 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2016-04-15 19:54:59 UTC
So, some header include got changed and sysmacros.h is not a side effect anymore.

Do you, by chance, use 4.5.x (unstable/testing) kernels?

Also it seems, folks upgrading to kde5 who already have these packages installed won't get this problem.
Comment 5 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2016-04-19 11:15:25 UTC
I just comprehended what is being discussed in gentoo-dev with the topic "glibc 2.23 ... breaking stuff" and this seems to be a fallout from the glibc update?
