Bug#763694: libtecla transition breakage

Source: libtecla, bladerf, maude 
Severity: serious

Dear Maintainer,

it looks like the latest libtecla upload to unstable renamed
libtecla1-dev into libtecla-dev. This has not been coordinated with
the reverse-dependencies, so bladerf and maude are now unbuildable.
Please don't do that.

Now this has to be fixed. Either by reverting the change in libtecla,
or by updating the build-dependencies in bladerf and maude. I let you
choose what is the best. As the freeze is approaching please fix that
within a week.

Package: dnsmasq
Version: 2.72-1
Severity: serious

dnsmasq FTBFS on kfreebsd, because it builds some code to use FreeBSD
PF, which also uses strlcpy, which is only found in FreeBSD libc.

For Debian GNU/kFreeBSD it is possible to get this function from libbsd;
patch attached!

Bug#763690: libgtk2.0-0: Many (all?) gtk2 applications segfault when using threads

Package: libgtk2.0-0
Version: 2.24.24-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear GTK2 Maintainers,
since I upgraded a couple of days ago libgtk2 packages I cannot use any
of the gtk2 applications I tried (for example: mirage, reportbug,

These are the messages I get:

$ mirage
Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to retrieve property
`gtk-toolbar-icon-size' of type `GtkIconSize' from rc file value ""GTK_ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR""

deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. It will be removed in a future version.
  self.window.set_property('allow-shrink', False)

$ reportbug

Bug#762984: Another affected user

Just to add another data point, I ran into the same problem.

Booting stops with

> ALERT! /dev/mapper/vgsys-sid--usr does not exist. Dropping to a shell.

In busybox I can fix the problem by activating the volume groups:

> (initramfs) vgchange -a y
>   30 logical volume(s) in volumgroup "vgsys" now active

Hitting Ctrl-D afterwards resumes the boot. For some odd reason, it 
notices that /usr has been mounted 922 times without being checked and 
forces the fsck. I never checked (nor do I really care, /usr can be 
recovered from

The version of initramfs-tools on my system is 0.117 as well. I would 
consider this as serious since that system booted just fine since its 
installation in 2009, not counting the systemd transition which made it 
unbootable two times.

I attached the trace.log from running mkinitramfs.

Greetings, Torsten

Bug#763685: apt-cacher-ng: FTBFS[!linux]: C++11 syntax error, systemd dependency

Package: apt-cacher-ng
Version: 0.8.0~rc3-1
Severity: serious


apt-cacher-ng FTBFS on non-Linux architectures.  Firstly, this line of
code seems to be incorrect syntax in C++11, I guess because of the new
initialiser list feature:

Secondly, there is a dependency on libsystemd-daemon-dev which is

Finally the dh_install step does some systemd-specific things which fail

Bug#763680: python-pypdf2: Python-pypdf2 doesn't install any library

Package: python-pypdf2
Version: 1.23-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

up to date version of python-pypdf2 package doesn't contain the PyPDF2
library neither it requires it's installation through dependencies.

The PyPDF2 library is instead in python-pypdf library, most likely a
mistake in package build.
