We have a Build Bot running on a GNOME server; available at It is far from being a full green build, but hopefully with some help this can be achieved. Especially the scrollkeeper error is strange (to me):

gcc -g3 -O0 -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage -o .libs/scrollkeeper-tree-separate separate.o  -L/usr/local/buildslave/gnome/work/bin/lib64 ../libs/.libs/ /usr/local/buildslave/gnome/work/bin/lib64/ /usr/local/buildslave/gnome/work/bin/lib64/ -lgcov -ldl -lz -lm -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/buildslave/gnome/work/bin/lib64
/usr/bin/ld: .libs/scrollkeeper-tree-separate: hidden symbol `__gcov_merge_add' in /usr/local/buildslave/gnome/work/bin/lib64/libgcov.a(_gcov_merge_add.o) is referenced by DSO
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output

Click here to see the full log. Help with all the errors is appreciated. Please subscribe to the build-brigade-list. More build bot slaves are appreciated too. If you have slaves (machines building GNOME at least 4 times a day.. preferably with root access) to donate, please mail us (the rest of the team -Iago Toral- is much better at setting these things up than me). Not sure what Iago is planning, but I want at least 5 slaves.

  1. Most of the gnome packages also have a test target, but I’ve found that a fair amount of them fail, sometimes due to silly documentation errors. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have the build cluster also run a ‘make test’ when the normal make has succeeded, and report on that?
