I tried a couple of times but forgot to log it, git bisect is your friend.

Yes it is.
Did anyone find out what changed =auto to =yes?

Gabriele, is the bug fixed ? I'd like to see =auto come back but that's eventually for another ticket.

ok 3d9edb9 just switched =yes to =no but I can't see when it had switched from =auto (692eb4829 by Petter) to =yes.
Any git guru around?

In this particular case, most distributions do not ship EGL, which is only used for OpenVG support. For distcheck, it's good to build most everything, ie... all devices, but the EGL device would always fail. I guess 'auto' would handle that, but I dislike 'auto'.

We should close this one as distcheck now works fine. If all devices are specified at configure time, but OpenVG isn't, then that should be an error. That would be a different bug though, but I'll look into it as the author of the EGL & OpenVG code.

That commit silently turns down a request to build all devices. Shouldn't this be the behavior of "auto" instead ?
I mean, if you request all gui you get an error if any can't be built. And the same happens with media handler.

Fixed as of commit 3d9edb9.

About lenny, dist configure fails and --enable-device=all seems to be the problem. I haven't add it yet to non-dist configure options on bb.
If I did it, configure would fail on squeeze, lenny, openbsd(any egl/gles?):


Don't consider fedora issue, I'll file another bug.

As per point 8 in http://wiki.gnashdev.org/CommitRules
(Bugs that break builds should always be considered high-priority)
this is high priority...

Btw, if "configure" step fails, shouldn't build slave stop it there rather than going on to the "distcheck" step ?
(referring to the cygnal error)

[distcheck builds are scheduled once a week at 9:30 pm MDT on Friday]

It fails on lenny due to missing egl/gles packages:

checking egl/EGL/egl.h presence... configure: error: "EGL requested but development package not found"


and on fedora:

make[2]: Entering directory `/bb/build/fedora15-linux-i386/build/gnash-0.8.10dev/_build/cygnal'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `distclean'. Stop.
