Description Dennis Schridde 2021-04-20 07:16:09 UTC
* QA Notice: Unresolved soname dependencies:
 *      /usr/lib64/
 *      /usr/lib64/

This is at the end of the second build of bpftrace-0.12.1.  The first build left preserved libraries behind:
>>> package: dev-util/bpftrace-0.12.1                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 *  - /usr/lib64/                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
 *      used by /usr/lib64/ (dev-util/bpftrace-0.12.1)

After the second build, this library is no longer preserved:
# portageq list_preserved_libs /
<no output>
Comment 1 WGH 2021-07-15 17:08:06 UTC
I'm not having this QA Notice in dev-util/bpftrace-0.13.0, but it the loader gives a runtime error. There is bpftrace-0.13.0-install-libs.patch in the files/, which seems to fiddle with some install and link directives. Maybe it does something wrong?
Comment 2 WGH 2021-07-15 17:17:45 UTC
I have fixed it by adding 


to src/arch/CMakeLists.txt. This was the only missing library.

The patch adds similar install directives for other files, I suppose the bpftracearch was simply accidentally forgotten?
Comment 3 WGH 2021-07-15 23:47:04 UTC
Oh, I suppose it was recently fixed in bug 801472.
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-10-26 18:38:47 UTC
ci has reproduced this issue with version 0.14.0 - Updating summary.
Comment 5 Holger Hoffstätte 2021-10-26 20:48:25 UTC was missing in 0.13 (and fixed), 0.14 is indeed missing It's being built but not installed, so same problem, only in src/ast/CMakeLists.txt.
