Description asnagni 2009-09-07 08:44:37 UTC
 I'm using jhbuild to build X R7.4. My goal is to build all the packages. I'm following the process descibe here http://www.x.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide and here http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/jhbuild 


I was able to build all the packages up to the module 102 which is the xserver. I have problem the the file "sdksyms.c", which is generated by the script "sdksyms.sh". I have the kernel

I have the following errors:

Any idea about what can it be and how to solve it. I guess that I will have to modify the sdksyms.h file

Thanks for you help,

sdksyms.sh is a bit buggy and very easy to upset. Please attach your sdksyms.c file so we can locate where it goes wrong.

I can see where it fails but I don't understand why it fails on your machine only - the same code seems to work fine here.

Can you please pull the latest server and try again? if you delete the sdksyms.c file (the generated one) you force a rebuild of that too, just to be sure.
Comment 6 Peter Hutterer 2009-10-07 21:09:40 UTC
any update on this? did the rebuild fix it?
Comment 7 Jesse Adkins 2010-10-22 15:22:55 UTC
Different results, same root cause.
