Subject: Mass rebuild, mass Golang packages failures
Since the mass rebuild and maybe because of Golang 1.11 beta 1, all the
package containing a binary fail because the debuginfo are not generated:
RPM build errors:
error: Empty %files file /builddir/build/BUILD/rclone-1.42/
Empty %files file /builddir/build/BUILD/rclone-1.42/debugsourcefiles.list
Child return code was: 1
whereas it was working correctly before.
Has anyone any idea what is causing this and how it can be fixed?
We have been just discussing this at fedora-devel IRC. It seems that it is most probably
caused by compress debug information that Go1.11 is now generating and rpm/debuginfo not
understanding them. Adding -compressdwarf=false to the ldflags should workaround this. I
will add it in to the gobuild macros so all packages that use it will pick it up
automatically. ETA tomorrow.
Thanks to sgallagh, mjw and most notably eclipseo who narrowed that down to the debug info
compression and came up with the workaround.
