Subject: libembperl-perl: FTBFS on arm - fails httpd syntax check 1
Date: Fri, 4 Nov 2005 02:03:31 -0000 (GMT)
Package: libembperl-perl
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 4.8

Build:
http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=libembperl-perl&ver=2.0.1-1&arch=arm&st$

fails during output caching tests:
sub EXPIRES in source...      ok
sub EXPIRES in source (cached)...ok

Performing httpd syntax check 1 ...  ERROR: Syntax OK not found
Got apache2: bad group name 1023

Attempting to reproduce this on my netwinder unstable chroot I find that the
package simply builds OK. I am at a bit of a loss to explain this. What
exactly is that test doing? Trying to run apache or apache2?

At that point, its starting apache2 (in your case).  The "bad group
name 1023" error is caused by the buildd user not having an entry in
the groups database.  Unfortunately, the apache config "Group"
directive only supports group names, not gids.

Also note very early on in the build (during "perl Makefile.PL"):
"Test httpd will run as user buildd and group 1023"

I should probably put in a specific (and more verbose) check for this
in the build script, since a number of buildds have had this problem.


Thanks for taking the time to investigate this.

This was a problem with the buildd environment (and apache).
libembperl-perl has since been autobuilt successfully:
 http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=libembperl-perl&ver=2.0.1-1&arch=arm&stamp=1136021508&file=log&as=raw

Closing bug.
