Bug #1657

kdevelop-base has obsolete config.guess

Added by phma over 8 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Target version:
Start date:
Due date:

Estimated time:


config.guess in the file incadmin.tar.gz in kdevelop-base is dated 2002-10-21.
The same file in the old version of Ubuntu is dated 2007-03-06. A new project
created with KDevelop on DragonFly fails to recognize the operating system.

There seems to be also a bug in libtool. When I create a project on Ubuntu and
rsync it to DFly, and try to configure and compile it there, libtool spawns a
huge number of shells and fills the process table.

Not sure what to do about this. Have you taken any actions just like reporting
this to KDE project?

This is probably not a problem with KDE itself but with the package. Once I
get my pkgin/pkgsrc straightened out, I'll see if it's still there.

I made a test project using KDevelop 3.5.5; it still had the 2002
config.guess. I looked in the tarballs in the KDevelop package and found one
with a 2005 date, but not the 2002 version. Copying config.guess
from /usr/pkg/share/automake-1.11 results in successfully configuring. I'll
have to trace kdevelop while it's making a project to figure out where the old
file is coming from.

Correction: I have to copy both config.guess and config.sub to get it to
configure. libtool still spawns a huge number of shells.

Please submit this bug to either KDE upstream or pkgsrc.
