Re: RFC: patch for libibverbs
while setting up a devel box, I've tried to install sbuild, but thanks
to a huge chain of dependencies, it's not installable because of
schroot, mpi, etc. until libibverbs.
Is the libibverbs package reasonable on GNU/kFreeBSD ?
It looks like it is a userspace counterpart to some (linux) kernel driver.
The openmpi package have it excluded just for this reason (see #433142):
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5.0.0), libibverbs-dev (>= 1.1.1) [!kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !hurd-i386], gfortran, gcc (>= 4:4.1.2), chrpath, quilt
It looks like the real problem lies in the libopenmpi-dev package as it
should similarly use
Depends: ... libibverbs-dev (>= 1.1.1) [!kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !hurd-i386]
Unfortunately the libibverbs-dev everywhere got in due to #522153 :-(
My suggestion is to do not submit bug to libibverbs, but to openmpi.
