Grass GIS - Grass Addons not compiling

Hi! I’m trying to compile GRASS GIS ADDDONS but in each addon I get a similar output:

make MODULE_TOPDIR=/usr/lib64/grass80/

I has something to do with package_note.


Hi @andresfduque , welcome to the forum.

Could we have some more information please?

What version of Fedora is this, and are you building it from source etc., or are you building a rpm package etc.?

This is the change relating to the ELF notes:

I think the troubling bit is this:

  -Wl,--build-id=sha1 -Wl,-dT,/builddir/build/BUILD/grass-8.0.1/.package_note-grass-8.0.1-1.fc36.x86_64.ld

I think the package notes are only generated during the build, these files aren’t actually shipped—can you modify your build flags to remove this bit perhaps?

Thank you!
The line you mention was located in “/usr/lib64/grass80/include/Make/Platform.make”, I removed the text you mentioned, and it worked.

This sounds like a bug—if the file is used for compiling other software, I think it should not contain this line. You certainly should not be required to modify files installed by the rpm from the Fedora repos.

Could you file a bug against the package please so that the maintainer can take a look?

The “file a bug” link is here:
