Hello packaging folks,
I decided to update my pkg_* tools recently, and it appears that the
build is broken on Solaris for some reason---appearently related to
large file support.
If anyone could help, or reports the same problem, it would be really
cool, and I'd probably offer him/her a beer.
pkg_add fails because it says it doesn't find enough space (while
there's 6GB free in /tmp).
With -v, it says the space left on the device is <0...
A few printf's later, it appears that off_t is a 32 bit unsigned
integer (on my machine). In lib/pen.c, min_free() multiplies two
off_t's and returns an overflowed off_t (number of free bytes in a
device, wich certainly doesn't fit in 32 bits).
SunOS mikdemia 5.8 Generic_108528-15 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise
(with Zoularis + pkgsrc)
Solutions I tried:
Eventually, I tried a few preprocessor macros:
* _LARGEFILE_SOURCE and _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE don't do anything at all.
* _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 breaks the build, with a weird:
$ gcc -O2 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -Werror -I/usr/pkg/bsd/include
-D__EXTENSIONS__ -D_XPG4_2 -DSUNOS_5_8 (...) -c file.c
file.c: In function `isemptyfile':
file.c:133: invalid operands to binary !=
* patching lib/pen.c/min_free() to return an uint64_t. this works (of
course) but is pretty dirty...
Please tell me I've done something stupid, because not having a
functional pkg_* toolset really hurts.
