You'll currently have to pass --disable-eventrecorder to ./configure if you want to run make test.

Unfortunately, it does not work because configure is run again with different options:

This means that the dists/debian/rules should be modified as long as it is necessary.

Also, dists/debian/changelog is way behind.

Summary: Cannot build 1.8.0 due to multiple undefined referencesDEBIAN: Dist files not usable.

comment:5 by SF/jcmanciot, 8 years ago

I am able now to build the debian package. The log gives an interesting comment:

dh_pysupport: This program is deprecated, you should use dh_python2 instead. Migration guide:

Priority: lowblocker

The data in dists seems to have stopped being updated by 1.4. We should figure out for the next release whether the solution is to just pull in from upstream, or just stop maintaining this data ourselves. It would probably be nice to keep this up-to-date so that Buildbot can generate these packages automatically.

Setting to blocker just so a decision about what to do can be made before release.
