Description Ingvar Hagelund 2008-06-12 10:54:08 UTC
Description of problem:
When building i386 packages from source rpm with mock on x86_64 machine,
postgresql-devel lacks /usr/include/pg_config_i386.h and

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
any recent fedora postgresql package

Note that I tested this with mock-0.6 on an ubuntu system. A control build with
a fedora stamped mock should be done to make sure the issue is present on fedora
as well. I'll try to do this when I get home and get time and find a decent machine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an i386 mockbuild of postgresql on a x86_64 machine
2. rpm -qpl postgresql-devel*.rpm | grep pg_config_i386.h

Actual results:
no output

Expected results:

Additional info:
Workaround: run mock with linux32 wrapper

The postgresql build should not use uname -{i,p,m} when deciding what files to
create, but rely on %{ARCH} from rpmbuild/mock/whatever.

I forgot, I only have i386 on my fedora boxes at home. 

Comment 2 Tom Lane 2008-06-12 14:08:57 UTC
Why in the world does mock not provide that wrapper?  I think this is a mock bug.

Comment 3 Rajesh Krishnan 2008-06-17 02:47:38 UTC
I have an x86_64 machine running Fedora-8.  I was not able to find 
the /usr/bin/pg_config installed by the postgresql-devel RPM package, even 
though the RPM lists the entry.

Is it possible to get a fixed RPM anytime soon for Fedora-8?


Comment 4 Tom Lane 2008-06-17 04:23:03 UTC
Ingvar: I tried the case just now using Fedora 8's mock, and it works as expected.  So I'm of the opinion 
that you are looking at a bug in Ubuntu's mock.  mock is supposed to reproduce the target system's build 
environment, and they're clearly missing a bet there.

Rajesh: that file is certainly present in the RPM.  You might possibly have a gripe to file against yum or 
rpm itself, but I don't think you've ruled out plain old pilot error.  In any case, please don't attach unrelated 
issues to existing bugzilla entries.

Comment 5 Tom Lane 2008-06-17 04:28:04 UTC
Oh, another data point: mock on current Fedora 8 is mock-0.9.7-2.  Maybe this is just something that got 
fixed since 0.6?

Comment 6 Ingvar Hagelund 2008-06-17 11:16:29 UTC
You're probably right. I guess I have to nag someone to upgrade that mock
package on this ubuntu system.

Thanks for your time looking into this. I'll leave the bug closed.
