Bug Description


dh_makeshlibs is not called for the lib64z1 package, letting packages which have dependencies on this library fail to build:

DIRNAME=64 dh_shlibdeps -plib64gphobos71 -l/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:/lib64:/usr/lib64:/<<PKGBUI
LDDIR>>/debian/tmp/usr/lib64:/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>/debian/tmp/usr/x86_64-linux-gnu/lib -- -Ldebian/shlibs.common64
dpkg-shlibdeps: error: no dependency information found for /usr/lib64/ (used by debian/lib64gphobos71/usr/lib6
dh_shlibdeps: dpkg-shlibdeps -Tdebian/lib64gphobos71.substvars -l/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -l/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -l/l
ib64 -l/usr/lib64 -l/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>/debian/tmp/usr/lib64 -l/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>/debian/tmp/usr/x86_64-linux-gnu/lib -Ldebi

.71.0.2 returned exit code 2
make[1]: *** [stamps/08-binary-stamp-lib64phobos] Error 2

The fix is simple, and in wily and newer Ubuntu versions.

SRU validation: the package builds, and dh_shlibdeps doesn't fail anymore for depending packages (e.g. the gcc-7 build in the ubuntu-toolchain-r/test directory.

It's a change to a library package which is normally unused, so I don't see any regression potential there.

However zlib was not built in trusty, but in saucy only. So there could be unexpected results, however I don't see build failures in the trusty test rebuilds either.

Hello Matthias, or anyone else affected,

Accepted zlib into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See 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-trusty to verification-done-trusty. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-trusty. 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 . Thank you in advance!
