Description m1027 2021-06-25 10:29:15 UTC
Updating from samba-4.13.9 to 4.13.9-r1 fails because during the normal build a cross-compiler is detected and in turn used for building...

See the build.log.

Same for 4.14.5-r1 here.


Reproducible: Always

Please attach output of `emerge --info` as well, I can't seem to reproduce despite having i686-w64-mingw32-gcc installed.

emerge --info

Voila the output of emerge --info.

Thanks for investigating.

A temporary workaround is:

mv /usr/bin/i686-w64-mingw32-gcc /usr/bin/i686-w64-mingw32-gcc-DISABLED

Then emerge samba works. When undoing the workaround, emerge samba fails

I just don't understand why the presence of a mingw32 cross-compiler has any
impact on building samba for the native linux amd64 host.
Comment 5 m1027 2021-07-26 19:48:04 UTC
The issue disappeared.

What I did is: crossdev --clean i686-w64-mingw32 and then reinstalled the cross-compiler again. Obviously with newer binutils, gcc and libc versions then originally, most importantly probably using gcc 10.3 instead of 9.3.

After that emerge -a samba worked.

Maybe crossdev --clean fixed some things like dangling symlinks or so.

Note: I have half a dozen cross-compilers and just wiped the i686-w64-mingw32 temporarily.

So, while not actually knowing what caused the issue, I'd close this bug report.

Thanks for looking into it, if there's an issue I imagine it may be with what older crossdev did (and was kept around) and it's not really samba's problem.
