cowbuilder and debian stable/etch

Posted on | agosto 18, 2008 | No Comments

Hi guys, I’m now working to create an automatic process to download/build/package a lot of .deb filez. Compiling environment is made with cowdancer/cowbuilder, so I can use a virtual builder to create multi-distro packages (currently stable/testing/unstable/experimental). I got a strange error with cowdancer / stable build. When I try to compile a package, I got this strange error:

 Attempting to satisfy build-dependencies
 -> Creating pbuilder-satisfydepends-dummy package
cowdancer: .ilist size unexpected
cowdancer: .ilist size unexpected
cowdancer: .ilist size unexpected
cowdancer: .ilist size unexpected
cowdancer: .ilist size unexpected
sh: /tmp/satisfydepends-aptitude/pbuilder-satisfydepends-dummy/DEBIAN/control: Cannot allocate memory
E: pbuilder-satisfydepends failed.

So I can’t compile anything for stable distro :( I solved with a very little workaround. In my stable build command line, I used –debian-etch-workaround switch and, now, all works OK !!!

Good debianizing :)

UPDATE: this post is the solution for this error
