FTBFS in Cosmic

Bug #1818057 reported by Christian Ehrhardt 
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
numactl (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


 * Due to changes in libc numactl is FTBFS in Cosmic.
   Backport upstream changes to fix this as part of an ongoing SRU.
   - https://github.com/numactl/numactl/commit/b40760132
   - https://github.com/numactl/numactl/commit/25691a084

[Test Case]

 * Does it build in -proposed (and PPAs to prove it)

[Regression Potential]

 * The changes are minimal, both changed should functionally be a no-op.
   Therefore I hope that the regression risk is rather low.
   If anything then different libc/kernel behavior could make it regress,
   but then IMHO that would apply to the current build in the archive as
   well and not be part of this SRU.

[Other Info]

 * Found when working on SRu for bug 1817258
 * Sorry for the short SRU template, but for FTBFS bugs I'm not sure if
   we need more

Hello Christian, or anyone else affected,

Accepted numactl into cosmic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/numactl/2.0.11-2.2ubuntu0.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-cosmic to verification-done-cosmic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-cosmic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

The pending-SRU page lists both bugs as verified (1817258 1818057) and we eliminated the related test issues by retrying and hinting them - anything else blocking that one from being released?.

To be more specific, this fix here is only for cosmic where we never had autopkgtest issues with this.
