Package Build Issues Tracking

NOTE: This page is deprecated, and refers to Skip's CentOS 8.3 "practice" build. It is being kept as a reference in case there are similar issues with the listed packages.

The actual build is in progress, and Koji build errors are tracked on the main error tracking page: https://wiki.rockylinux.org/e/en/team/development/Package_Error_Tracking



This page details packages that have failed to build, or which something "special" had to be done to achieve a build.

For example, a package which fails when building with the newest version of a dependency, and requires the forced-downgrade to the older build dependency would go here.

This page is NOT for dependency issues, or tracking which order to build dependent packages in. That information is being tracked under Development/Build_Order/ in this wiki.

Repositories/Builds

This page tracks build failures from these sources:

  • CentOS BaseOS
  • CentOS AppStream
  • CentOS PowerTools
  • External Dependencies

"External Dependencies" means packages that are downloaded and built from git.centos.org , and don't belong in an official repository. Many packages from the official repositories depend on these external dependency packages.

Right now, build passes are done from CentOS 8.3 SRPMs and Skip's build server: ( https://rocky.lowend.ninja/RockyDevel/ )

Official Koji/MBS infrastructure is nearly complete and will of course be the official location for Rocky builds. This unofficial work is being done to gather information that will help the official build go smoothly.

All build "passes" are done via Mock, and their results are added to a repository on the build server. These repositories are available to subsequent builds, so more packages get their dependencies and successfully build.

  • Build Result Repositories: https://rocky.lowend.ninja/RockyDevel/ {BaseOS_final, BaseOS_devel, AppStream_final, AppStream_devel, PowerTools_final, PowerTools_devel, External_Deps} (Repos are separated into what goes in the official repo, and other build artifacts produced from the build that aren't in the official repo)
  • Mock Configurations: https://rocky.lowend.ninja/RockyDevel/mock_configs/ - The mock config files used for each Build Pass.
  • Mock Build logs and RPMs: https://rocky.lowend.ninja/RockyDevel/MOCK_RAW/ - Logs and result RPMs from the mock builds. Separated by repo and package name/version. Dig into here to find error logs and match them with build results listed in the wiki.
  • Summarized build results: https://rocky.lowend.ninja/RockyDevel/deliverables/ - Results from each build pass. What new packages succeeded, which ones failed, and what RPM files were created as a result of the build. This information gets copied to the Wiki under Development/Build_Order/ for easy viewing, but is available in raw form here.


A Note on Modularity

The current method for package testing is very simplistic, and doesn't take into account modular-stream packages (new feature in RHEL 8). While we don't produce modular metadata with this method to create proper modules, it's still possible to compile modular packages and use modular dependencies.

Our Mock config uses the option module_hotfixes=1 in the DNF repo config files, which causes DNF to consider all packages for build dependencies in Mock, even ones from modules that are not enabled.


Package Build Tips Discovered so far:

  • Perl: Build everything (especially external dependencies!) against the default Perl 5.26 stream, NOT the latest available 5.30 stream. Perl packages higher up the chain depend on 5.26.

  • Maven: Create blank maven.conf file : config_opts['files']['/etc/java/maven.conf'] = " " by changing mock config. Maven-related packages have a script that checks for it and will fail if it's not present

  • Various(SystemD): SystemD changed its version string output from a simple "239" to a more complicated "239 (239-41.el8_3.1)" starting with the listed version. Breaks several package scripts.

  • javapackages-tools: In order to produce "maven-local-openjdk8", you need a specific commit, more info under External Dependencies page.


The New List

This is a list of failing builds from kojidev.rockylinux.org that need help. We're now focusing development efforts on helping the real builds, and not doing "practice" builds of CentOS.

This list is not grouped according to repo.

Package Notes
bolt-0.9-1.el8 Using simple mock chroot (isolation=simple) solves permission issues, but there are still 2 tests that fail with signal 5 (SIGTRAP). Investigation still ongoing
graphviz-2.40.1-40 Fixed if module_hotfixes=1 is turned off. It pulls in the latest Ruby 2.7 and not the default Ruby 2.5 stream, which breaks the build
marisa Succeeded locally for Leigh + tjyang. More investigation...?
python-requests Succeeded locally for Leigh + tjyang. More investigation...?
python-psycopg2 Failed locally also. Possible patch required? https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-psycopg2/c/89f4b65570783ea763c37311e974296d3ff40d90?branch=master
scrub Succeeded locally for Leigh + tjyang. More investigation...?
uglify-js Succeeded locally for Leigh + tjyang. More investigation...?

External Dependencies:

Package Notes
dom4j Wacky package. It must be built using a jaxen package that is built with dom4j support, which is not present in CentOS. We had to bootstrap the dom4j build using jaxen from Fedora 29, which is compiled with dom4j support.
perl-* Be SURE to build against Perl-5.26 (default stream), NOT Perl-5.30 (latest version available). Required disabling module_hotfixes=1 option to force default Perl. Maybe fixed by MBS...?
maven-* Requires presence of an /etc/maven.conf , fails if not found. Added a blank one in mock: config_opts['files']['/etc/java/maven.conf'] = " " as a workaround


Older SRPM Errors These failures were looked at, but are older versions of the packages, and likely not needed:

Package Notes
device-mapper-multipath-0.8.3-3.el8 Newest version of systemd gives extra information about version number - "239 (239-41.el8_3.1)" vs. the plain old "239". So a script fails. Will build against older versions of Systemd. We have a newer version of this package that works, it may be Ok to skip.
device-mapper-multipath-0.8.3-3.el8_2.3 Newest version of systemd gives extra information about version number - "239 (239-41.el8_3.1)" vs. the plain old "239". So a script fails. Will build against older versions of Systemd. We have a newer version of this package that works, it may be Ok to skip.
samba-4.11.2-13.el8 Requires python3-ldb version lower or equal to 2.0.999, however actual python3-ldb version is 2.1.3. We have a newer version of this package that works, it may be Ok to skip. (samba-4.12.3)
sssd-2.2.3-20.el8 ERROR: sssd -> requires pam_wrapper rpm (https://git.centos.org/rpms/pam_wrapper.git) We have a newer version of this package that works, it may be Ok to skip.
bcc-0.11.0-2.el8 Unable to find clang-libs even though the dependency that should satisfy this is installed. Only works with clang 9 or lower, but newer bcc with clang 10 seems ok. Probably fine to skip.
tigervnc-1.9.0-15.el8_1 xorg-server 1.20.7+ requires the impelementation of a ddxInputThreadInit function. A patch that fixes this is in the latest version at git.centos.org and works with xorg-server 1.20.8-6. This is what is currently in the repo. (https://git.centos.org/rpms/tigervnc/c/4a81f2fc8757bea7ff2c1d8b1fd881a2bed6803c?branch=c8) The version in vault.centos.org was built against xorg-server 1.20.3-11. Suggest skipping this package.
sbd-1.4.1-3.el8 Build error is being caused by a change in Pacemaker (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1850078). This has been fixed in newer versions. Suggest skipping.
xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.917-38.20180618.el8 Missing in spec file BuildRequires: libXv-devel. Added it to chroot install. CentOS Koji logs show that this hidden dependency was installed for their build (https://koji.mbox.centos.org/pkgs/packages/xorg-x11-drv-intel/2.99.917/38.20180618.el8/data/logs/i686/root.log)
webkit2gtk3-2.24.4-2.el8_1 Looks like a build error that is being caused by libglvnd being present. The original build used different subpackages which contained header files. These packages have been removed and appear to be in libglvnd. (See https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=204108) webkit2gtk3-2.24.4-2.el8_1 <--- This version was built against an older version of mesa and libglvnd. Newer versions have been rebased to webkit2gtk3 2.28. I would recommend skipping this package since there is a newer one present which works with the latest libraries.
~~spirv-tools-2019.5-1.20200129.git97f1d48.el8~~ ~~The spirv headers have changed and this no longer builds against the latest version present. Suggest skipping since there are newer versions that build fine.~~
spice-gtk-0.37-1.el8 Missing BuildRequires: libdrm-devel in spec file. Is present in subsequent updates. Added libdrm-devel to chroot install and was built.
vulkan-tools-1.2.131.1-1.el8 Looks like a lot of newer vulkan headers and dependencies, like spirv, have been updated. Building against newer headers and libraries results in a build failure. Found a Debian post where someone was trying to rebuild the same version that we are trying to rebuild and the resolution was that newer versions have fixed the build issue. Suggest skipping since newer version is present.
vulkan-validation-layers-1.2.13{1, 5}.* Same issue as vulkan-tools. Newer vulkan headers and dependencies being present results in a build failure with this older version. Suggest skipping.
