pixman / tls link time issue


in gnustep-back I am trying to compileagainst the cairo library both on 
solaris 9 and solaris 10. Since pkg-config doesn't appear to work too 
well, I added manually CFLAGS and LDFLAGS this way:

CONFIGURE_ARGS_5.9 += CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS) -I/opt/csw/include/freetype2 
-I/opt/csw/include/cairo" LDFLAGS="$(LDFLAGS) -lcairo"

This generates

   $ ./configure --prefix=/opt/csw --exec_prefix=/opt/csw 
--bindir=/opt/csw/bin --sbindir=/opt/csw/sbin 
--libexecdir=/opt/csw/libexec -
-datadir=/opt/csw/share --sysconfdir=/etc/opt/csw 
--sharedstatedir=/opt/csw/share --localstatedir=/var/opt/csw 
--libdir=/opt/csw/lib -
-infodir=/opt/csw/share/info --includedir=/opt/csw/include 
--mandir=/opt/csw/share/man --enable-graphics=cairo CFLAGS=-O2 -pipe -mcpu=
v8 -I/opt/csw/include/freetype2 -I/opt/csw/include/cairo 
LDFLAGS=-mcpu=v8 -L/opt/csw/lib -lcairo

which looks fine to me

This seesm to work partially, since a configure test fails this way.

configure:2717: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:2739: /opt/csw/bin/gcc-4.6 -O2 -pipe -mcpu=v8 
-I/opt/csw/include/freetype2 -I/opt/csw/include/cairo  -mcpu=v8

question on community (OSQA): OpenSSH

is anyone working on OpenSSH?

error durring package upload

When trying to upload a coherent set of packages I got:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/pfelecan/opencsw/.buildsys/v2/bin/../lib/python/checkpkg2.py", line 16, in <module>
    from lib.python import checkpkg_lib
ImportError: No module named lib.python

I have no clue why is that. The .buildys directory is up to date.

buildfarm already on friday late afternoon.

Sorry for that..

Mail & Web: Memory error


Unfortunately the OpenCSW website and the mail services were down
again. This time it was caused by a deffective memory DIMM.

Having 50% less memory (8 GB instead of 16 GB) isn't really good
and the T2000 is now short on memory.

Does somebody has spare memory DIMMs for the T2000 and can help
me out here?

I was installing patches on the global zone with Live Upgrade
and the reboot needed much more than I expected.

Everything is up and running again.

debugging failing build / additional make parameters

Hi all,

I am still tring do debug whi I can't build gnustep-back on Solaris 9 
while it does build on 10!
I have a problem with missing includes or wrong order of includes with 
freetype and cairo.

One think I'd like to know if and what path is really used to build.

GNUstep make builds without issuing the actual compile command line.
E.g one sees only

Compiling xxxx....
Compiling xxxx....

one needs to run "make messages=yes" to see the actual commands (debug).
How can I pass this?
I thought

BUILD_ARGS += messages=yes

would so it, but it doesn't work... perhaps something in the receipe 
"breask" that? Or isn't BUILD_ARGS the variable I need to add options to 

To that I also have the curiosity if we can enable in mgar 
parallel-build. E.g. am extra BUILD arg could be -j$(CPU_NUM)

respin apache24, solarisstudio12.4 on experimental?


on experiementatal10x i tried to respin apache24 and configure tries to use
while there is only

cause might be that i upgraded apr on unstable10x, where
solarisstudio12.4 is installed.

where is the GAR documentation?

Usually I have a bookmark on it but lately I cannot access it anymore.

For example, when going to our Wiki: http://wiki.opencsw.org/build and
choosing the link named "Official GAR documentation", which eventually
resolves to https://buildfarm.opencsw.org/trac/ , I'm getting an ugly:
"Service Temporarily Unavailable".

experimental, or test install


how you guys do to get something into experimental, either on the
website, or install something after a mgar package?
