Description Franz Trischberger 2019-09-28 10:23:57 UTC
Created attachment 591200 [details]

Earlier today I got an update from libffi-3.2.1 to libffi-3.3_rc0 which is the reason for the non-existant include path. kde-frameworks/networmanager-qt  was not rebuilt automatically after libffi-update, it doesn't list libffi as a dependency.

That's because there is no such dependency. It looks like something is leaking this and other includes into the build.

This hack allowed powerdevil to configure (the one in my tmp directory is the original)...

Comment 6 Franz Trischberger 2019-10-15 07:54:13 UTC
This comes from dev-libs/glib, through "/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/gobject-2.0.pc".
Removed the line "Requires.private: libffi >=  3.0.0", rebuilt networkmanager-qt and no libffi include dir anymore in "/usr/lib64/cmake/KF5NetworkManagerQt/KF5NetworkManagerQtTargets.cmake".

Comment 9 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2019-10-27 12:02:04 UTC
Seems to be a meson thing:

Which is leading to this output:
> $ pkg-config --cflags libnm

Adding meson and glib maintainers.
Comment 10 Guy 2019-10-29 12:57:25 UTC
As per advice of comment #8 and with reference to bug #697120 this worked for me:

emerge -1v =networkmanager-qt-5.63.0 && emerge -1v =kde-plasma/powerdevil-5.17.1 && emerge -1v =kde-plasma/plasma-meta-5.17.1

I was able to successfully complete @world updates on 4 different computers.

Re-assigning, as the only thing we could do from kde proj's side is hacking the result, not the underlying problem.
Comment 15 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-10-30 14:48:26 UTC
(In reply to Andreas Sturmlechner from comment #14)

If you feel meson is generating an incorrect pkgconfig file, please report it upstream. We are not doing anything special in Gentoo that would cause it.
Comment 16 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-10-30 16:06:55 UTC
meson seems to be working as documented. I think you may have a tough time convincing meson upstream to change this.

Requires.private seems appropriate here, though the --cflags behavior is unfortunate. It's been documented in this FAQ for a long time.

Possibly glib cloud abandon the meson pkgconfig module, and go back to generating custom pkgconfig files to avoid this.

As well, it could be argued that pkg-config output should not be cached into cmake files, since it becomes invalid any time a pkgconfig file in the dependency chain is updated.

So what can gnome@ do here? Maybe someone that already studied all the details could go talk to glib upstream in ?

Comment 22 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-11-27 19:08:10 UTC
I'm checking with the toolchain maintainers to see if we can move the libffi headers to a more stable location, which should avoid this problem.
Comment 23 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-11-27 20:13:56 UTC
The real issue here seems to be that pkg-config information is getting stored into generated cmake files by various KDE framework packages. This information may become invalid at any time as packages are upgraded.

What is the purpose of this?

Nope, exactly one Framework, networkmanager-qt and none else.

    dev-libs/libffi: drop libffi version from includedir, bug #695788
    Posting ebuild source note as-is:
     --includedir= path maintains a few properties:
     1. have stable name across libffi versions: some packages like
        dev-lang/ghc or kde-frameworks/networkmanager-qt embed
        ${includedir} at build-time. Don't require those to be
        rebuilt unless SONAME changes. bug #695788
        We use /usr/.../${PN} (instead of former /usr/.../${P}).
     2. have ${ABI}-specific location as ffi.h is target-dependent.
        We use /usr/$(get_libdir)/... to have ABI identifier.
    Before the change libffi installed headers into:
    After the change the patchs are:

Had this bug when emerging x11-libs/vte. Resolved it by re-emerging gobject-introspection (pkg-config gobject-introspection added the wrong include path of libffi to cflags)
