Description Christian Ullrich 2021-05-27 08:57:03 UTC
Created attachment 225302 [details]

This morning's update of devel/glib20 to release 2.68.2 broke the build of open-vm-tools due to an API change.

The attached patch lets it build again, but I cannot say whether the patch is correct. Anything with the word "volatile" in it is scary.

Thanks for the report.

@nc please take a look at this, and consider to (read: do) request exp-runs in the future.

Keep for the future updates: upstream has own, more complete solution.

Comment 3 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2021-08-14 04:22:51 UTC
Upstream backport likely the better option here. Build regression needs to be landed and merged prior to update to 11.3.0 (bug 256282)
Comment 4 Renato Botelho freebsd_committer 2021-08-18 19:29:04 UTC
open-vm-tools already has patches and build fine with latest glib20
