/proc and build environments
This is probably a FAQ, and I guess I knew the answer at one point.
What are the requirements for /proc and buildds? Can packages assume
that /proc/self/stat exist in a buildd environment?
The following is from mundy.debian.org, from a testing-security build:
| Setting up gij-4.3 (4.3.1-9) ...
| GC Warning: Couldn't read /proc/stat
| Couldn't read /proc/self/stat
| /var/lib/dpkg/info/gij-4.3.postinst: line 29: 10104 Aborted gcj-dbtool-4.3 -n /var/lib/gcj-4.3/classmap.db
| dpkg: error processing gij-4.3 (--configure):
| subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
I don't know yet if the crash is related to the lack of /proc. (The
package builds fine on caballero.debian.org, the sid buildd.)
