your log shows you forcing a build of libpng.  this ignores dependencies like

zlib.  so unless a `make lib_only` fails, what you're showing here is not a bug.


--- Vivi Li                                                  2010-05-05 03:50:44

Yes, it still fails. And all kernel regressions ceased because libpng is

selected by default config and it can not build now.


--- Mike Frysinger                                           2010-05-05 04:01:28

so post the full build log as an attachment as well as a directory listing of

the staging/usr/lib/ directory.  zlib nor libpng have changed in months.

Files are attached.

something is broken on your test system and it looks like the testing script

isnt catching these failures.  both things need to be fixed i guess.

--- Vivi Li                                                  2010-05-05 05:37:26

Thanks for point it out.

I've fixed it in regression machine.


Close this bug.


--- Mike Frysinger                                           2010-05-05 05:47:04

doesnt the .exp script need fixing so that it aborts when `make clean` fails ?


--- Vivi Li                                                  2010-05-06 00:12:46

OK, test scripts are updated.
