rutilt_0.12-0ubuntu1 fails to build on Ubuntu's build servers...

Bug #68454 reported by Nick on 2006-10-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
rutilt (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

...this is because they run absurdly old kernels ;)

An example:-

# Add here commands to configure the package.
./ --prefix=/build/buildd/rutilt-0.12/debian/rutilt/usr --kernel_sources=/usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r| cut -d- -f1,2`
Prefix set to : /build/buildd/rutilt-0.12/debian/rutilt/usr
Kernel sources path set to : /usr/src/linux-headers-
Your kernel sources cannot be found.
Kernel headers found...
They does not match your running kernel.
make: *** [configure-stamp] Error 1

As-is, the package just grabs the latest version of the headers and builds against them. Note that rutilt runs absolutely fine, no matter what it's built against, as long as the wireless extensions are above v17 or so (which they are, of course).

The solution should be to comment out lines 124-127 inclusive in the file - this can easily be done with dpatch... they are:
            if [ `grep "#define UTS_RELEASE" /usr/include/linux/version.h | tr -s '\t' ' ' | cut -d' ' -f3 | tr -d '"'` != `uname -r` ]; then
                echo 'They does not match your running kernel.'
                exit 1

I am confirming this. However, I cannot get this to build with any 2.6 kernels. I also grabbed 0.13 from upstream and still same problems. Thank you.

I can replicate previous review, and have now unsubscribed ubuntu-universe-sponsors, as this solution is not ready for upload. From brief investigation, this appears to be addressed in rutilt 0.14. Please consider preparing a candidate revision of the new upstream, uploading to REVU, and attaching either an interdiff or the output of `diff -u rutilt-0.12/debian rutilt-0.14/debian`) to the bug with a comment including the REVU upload URL. If a new revision is prepared, please resubscribe ubuntu-universe-sponsors for upload.
