@daniel_shub AFAIK, this is a new feature in GCC 8, which will be an error if -Werror is used. If you need the build ASAP, then you can downgrade your GCC.

I am building in a clean chroot. I get the following error;

xc_pm.c:308:5: error: 'strncpy' specified bound 16 equals destination size [-Werror=stringop-truncation] strncpy(scaling_governor, govname, CPUFREQ_NAME_LEN);

It looks like there may be a patch for it

@virtualdxs: I've fixed OVMF system path, also added XSA-258 and glibc-2.27 compilation fix.

Regarding build failure, it looks like there was a previosuly applied patch in the src/ directory. Did you do rm -R src/ pkg/ before trying another compilation?

Here's the patch output:

Also xsa253-xsa254-diff-release410-comet1.1.patch is failing. Build succeeds without it.

virtualdxs commented on 2018-05-02 15:28

I could've sworn this was fixed months ago, but the compile options are wrong.

    --enable-ovmf \
    --with-system-ovmf \
    --with-system-seabios=/usr/share/qemu/bios-256k.bin \

Notice the --with-system-ovmf doesn't have a path. So Xen tries to access the file yes when looking for an EFI bios.
