Problem compiling aqsis on hppa
I'm preparing new the versions of aqsis after a long period when the package
was not maintained, so we jumped from 1.2 to 1.6.
With 1.6 it fails to compile in HPPA (at least in the HPPA of the farm),
although there wasn't (apparently) any problems on the rest of architectures
-- including hurd and kfreebsd kernels:
Strangely, the 1st attempt (1.6.0-1.1) got to 82% mark, but the logs
available for -1.2 and -2 show that they failed at the same point (37%,
trying to compile the same shader) and with no error... seems like the child
process dies. I'm guessing that the child in this case is a special
compiler for the shader (or a simple preprocessor converting it to C or
something), I didn't look closely at it yet because most probably is a bug
triggered only in HPPA for some reason.
Honestly, I have no idea of HPPA other than it's discontinued by the vendor,
but I think that it's still a candidate arch to be released in the next
stable, and I'd like to get the package shipped in stable.
Could anybody with access to a HPPA machine help me to debug this?
It takes less 10 minutes to compile inside pbuilder in a recent laptop, but
the only available person who replied me in debian-mentors@ so far said that
he had the hardware but that it was too obsolete to attempt to compile this
:-? , and suggested me to post here asking this.
