Description

gtk-d builds (and install) just fine on s390x when:

  • the (current) master sources are used (instead of the rather old stable release from 2021)
  • gdmd is used for compiling them

TODOs:

  • Check if a gtkd package already exists for e.g. x86_64 (as the default architecture for the factory) => most likely, yes
  • add additions archs to prj meta info
  • convince maintainer to consider using gdmd as "the loweset common denominator" for all supported archs (instead of the dmd/ldc combo) (intermediate solution until ldc becomes available on/for s390x) TODO: add link to ldc issue

Not sure what to put in the _service file in order to "just" get the latest master sources from GH
(rather than downloading a tarball of a tag). The current error msg I get:

[  291s] + cd /home/abuild/rpmbuild/BUILD
[  291s] + cd /home/abuild/rpmbuild/BUILD
[  291s] + rm -rf GtkD-3.11.0pre
[  291s] + /usr/lib/rpm/rpmuncompress -x /home/abuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/gtkd-3.11.0pre.tar.gz
[  291s] error: File /home/abuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/gtkd-3.11.0pre.tar.gz: No such file or directory

My current _service file:

<services>
    <service name="obs_scm" mode="disabled">
        <param name="scm">git</param>
        <param name="url">https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD</param>
        <param name="revision">master</param>
    </service>
</services>

(omitting mode="disabled" yields

Building gtkd.spec for openSUSE_Factory_zSystems/s390x
*** Error: Package obs-service-obs_scm is required for this operation

Why use the latest sources at all (rationale):

  • an interactive test on my LinuxONE instance (just git clone the "latest & greatest" and running /bin/env DC=gdmd make) just works
  • the patch for the GNUmakefile (fix-build.patch) is no longer needed
  • 3.10 is rather old (from 2021) and 3.11 based on the current commits to master has not been released yet

zypper in obs-service-obs_scm ;-)

@cboltz: Thanks for the hint :-) I've now installed both obs-service-obs_scm and obs-service-tar_scm and removed the mode="disabled" attribute from the _service file.

(Intermediate) result:

  • git clone of master sources works as expected:
    Run source service: /usr/lib/obs/service/obs_scm --scm git --url https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD --outdir /home/linux1/home:hrauch/gtkd_build-with-gdmd-on-s390x/tmpbrq83ndj.obs_scm.service
    Cloning into '/home/linux1/home:hrauch/gtkd_build-with-gdmd-on-s390x/GtkD'...
    Updating files: 100% (1371/1371), done.

  • But creating a tarball from those checked out sources doesn't seem to work:
    [ 244s] + /usr/lib/rpm/rpmuncompress -x /home/abuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/gtkd-3.11.0pre.tar.gz
    [ 244s] error: File /home/abuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/gtkd-3.11.0pre.tar.gz: No such file or directory

(Probably obvious) questions:

  • What's the openSUSE version number convention for using master sources?
  • How to (re)use that convention in the .spec file?
  • How to create a new (temporary) tarball from those checked out sources (alternatively, just download a master tarball directly from github and rename it)?

Compare the name gtkd-3.11.0pre.tar.gz with the name of the tar ball you are using.

I have been using master as a version number, if I want to test master branch versions. The spec file is using the version number defined in the spec file and the tar name defined under source.

@AdaLovelace : I now found a way by using the download_url module (part of obs-service); had to make a few
minor adjustments to gtkd.spec => gtkd compile initiated via osc build openSUSE_Factory_zSystems s390x --vm-type kvm is currently in progress

Actions #8

Updated by hrauch 11 months ago

Using --vm-type chroot is way faster (at least for longer compile runs) compared to --vm-type kvm (the latter wasn't even half way through from yesterday late in the evening...)

Apart from that, finally works as desired (the build as such had already worked, but version numbering needed some tweaking)

Now submitted as SR number 1078385

Still waiting for review by the devel:languages:D maintainers...

The current status regarding gtkd is somewhat disappointing. Why/in what respect? Please see
https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/issues/351#issuecomment-1380693868
and
https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/issues/351#issuecomment-1414341145
for details.
Long story short: the official gtkd repo (the one that's part of the gtk-developers org) is still
maintained "somehow" (in the sense that the last commit to master has been Apr 8), but issues don't seem
te be taken care of.
Nevertheless, I still created a new issue inquiring a new 3.11 tag:
https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/issues/353
=> Let's wait and see whether I get a response...

Apart from that, I've also rewritten my gtkd.changes file.
=> Not sure as to how to proceed with my (still pending) SR. Close at and open a new one?

Created a new SR (superseding the old one); new request ID is: 1093180
(I sincerely hope that I get a response this time.)
