libxml2 use_parallel_build problem

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: 0xced (Cédric Luthi), nox@…, raimue (Rainer Müller)
Port: libxml2


I couldn't upgrade from libxml2 2.6.31 to 2.6.32, and the reason is the "use_parallel_build yes" line that was added to the port in r36717. (I do have "buildmakejobs 2" in my macports.conf.) The build works fine, but the destroot phase doesn't:

$ sudo port upgrade libxml2

--->  Extracting libxml2

I had a similar problem with mysql5-devel after adding "use_parallel_build yes" to it. Maybe a similar workaround can work for libxml2, until they fix it upstream.

As a quick workaround you can disable parallel building on the command line:

sudo port install libxml2

This was fixed generally in r36890, correct?

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Port: libxml2 added

It was fixed generally in MacPorts trunk so that only the build phase is run in parallel, and that will be in MacPorts 1.7.0, and then r37322 can be reverted.
