Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-07-24 13:29:31 UTC

Issue: media-tv/mythtv calls nm directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

As per QA policy, toolchain tools must not be called directly because they can cause issue in cross-compiling and because is not possible use a different NM implementation (like llvm-nm). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the NM variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-nm.

I need help fixing this. I found several calls to nm in the upstream configure file for the mythtv package. I guess I need to change it to something else. I have no idea what that fix looks like. 

Is there an example or some documentation about fixing this.

I do not understand how to run the tinderbox test to verify I fixed it.
