Hello,

I'm having and issue with Mesa on i686-linux which I suspect is caused by
the version of GCC used to build it (i.e. 7.5.0).

To test my theory, I'm trying to build Mesa with a newer version of the
compiler. I tried a few different things, but none worked. I would be
grateful if someone could help me figure out how to do this:

Try #1:

$ guix build --system=i686-linux \
	--with-input=gcc-toolchain=gcc-toolchain@10.3.0 mesa
[…]
successfully built /gnu/store/bg01dw0178yb7v9xr4zmq5f05200f2ql-mesa-20.2.4.drv
/gnu/store/mvy7pl73yqrd9pi3k3xq14i6dmnfbl8s-mesa-20.2.4-bin
/gnu/store/ii8fbly1s19qwpnwv002fd2pxk2h96ba-mesa-20.2.4

So aparently it worked. But when checking the libraries, they still
link to GCC 7.5.0.

$ ldd /gnu/store/ii8fbly1s19qwpnwv002fd2pxk2h96ba-mesa-20.2.4/lib/libOSMesa.so.8.0.0 | grep gcc 
        libstdc++.so.6 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xf51d9000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf50b9000)

And surprisingly, when changing the requested gcc-toolchain version,
guix doesn't attempt to build anything and just returns the same
store items from the “10.3.0” build:

$ guix build --system=i686-linux --with-input=gcc-toolchain=gcc-toolchain@11.1.0 mesa
/gnu/store/mvy7pl73yqrd9pi3k3xq14i6dmnfbl8s-mesa-20.2.4-bin
/gnu/store/ii8fbly1s19qwpnwv002fd2pxk2h96ba-mesa-20.2.4

Try #2:

Next, I tried using ‘package-input-rewriting’ by putting the following
package definition in a channel I created locally (with the appropriate
‘#:use-module’ directives at the top):

```
(define gcc->gcc-10
  (package-input-rewriting `((,gcc . ,gcc-10)
                             (,(make-libstdc++ gcc) . ,(make-libstdc++ gcc-10)))))

(define-public mesa-10
  (package
    (inherit (gcc->gcc-10 mesa))
    (name "mesa-10")))
```

And then:

$ guix pull && guix build --system=i686-linux mesa-10
[…]
successfully built /gnu/store/g4j9kmxgp6lashyipcydn7i6vh2v4s3c-mesa-10-20.2.4.drv
/gnu/store/8iiwn9cnjlfxfi7m1fmdavzgr7y38vv7-mesa-10-20.2.4-bin
/gnu/store/hjci6cqw76hvdawdl04kjmbajklsdwx2-mesa-10-20.2.4

And unfortunately I saw many GCC 7.5.0 processes in the build, for example
(command line abridged because it's too big):

$ pgrep -u guixbuilder01 -a -f cc1
119240 /gnu/store/…-gcc-7.5.0/libexec/gcc/i686-unknown-linux-gnu/7.5.0/cc1 […]

And indeed, still linked to GCC 7.5.0 libraries:

$ ldd /gnu/store/hjci6cqw76hvdawdl04kjmbajklsdwx2-mesa-10-20.2.4/lib/libOSMesa.so.8.0.0 | grep gcc
        libstdc++.so.6 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xf51ff000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf50df000)

Also tried using GCC 11 by doing `s/-10/-11/g` in the code I quoted above
and building again:

$ guix build --system=i686-linux mesa-11
[…]
successfully built /gnu/store/vnmwibfpsw3fkm7q7y6z4r5273ri4qra-mesa-11-20.2.4.drv
/gnu/store/w5l307c1vnsik5h1zd9bcjzld2yp6xyl-mesa-11-20.2.4-bin
/gnu/store/l98bxwa5psb3yx56hhb78zr043s10p7q-mesa-11-20.2.4

At least this time it redoes the build instead of just returning the same
store items, but I still see the GCC 7.5.0 processes during the build:

$ pgrep -u guixbuilder01 -a -f cc1
127514 /gnu/store/…-gcc-7.5.0/libexec/gcc/i686-unknown-linux-gnu/7.5.0/cc1 […]

And again, linked with GCC 7.5.0 libraries:

$ ldd /gnu/store/l98bxwa5psb3yx56hhb78zr043s10p7q-mesa-11-20.2.4/lib/libOSMesa.so.8.0.0 | grep gcc
        libstdc++.so.6 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xf51e4000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /gnu/store/1527570cy2g7ld4wppmh3skvi27kvm43-gcc-7.5.0-lib/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf50c4000)

After sending the email, I thought of another thing to try, but it didn't
help. I thought I'd mention it here for completeness:

Try #3:

Using this definition in my local channel:

```
(define gcc->gcc-10
  (package-input-rewriting `((,gcc-7 . ,gcc-10)
                             (,(make-libstdc++ gcc-7) . ,(make-libstdc++ gcc-10)))))

(define-public mesa-10
  (package
    (inherit (gcc->gcc-10 mesa))
    (name "mesa-10")))
```

i.e., the only change relative to the previous try was to look for ‘gcc-7’
rather than ‘gcc’ to make the substitution.

But unfortunately guix build didn't even try to rebuild the package.
It just returned the store items that were built in try #2:

$ guix build --system=i686-linux mesa-10
/gnu/store/8iiwn9cnjlfxfi7m1fmdavzgr7y38vv7-mesa-10-20.2.4-bin
/gnu/store/hjci6cqw76hvdawdl04kjmbajklsdwx2-mesa-10-20.2.4

I believe this shows that ‘gcc’ already points to ‘gcc-7’. I just can't
change it for some reason…

I believe you have the wrong command here. What you want is
$ guix build --system=i686-linux \
	--with-c-toolchain=mesa=gcc-toolchain@10 mesa

$ guix gc --references /gnu/store/8klhnfd8a5syhfl3bj2zqc06fvxiqdwa-mesa-20.2.4 | grep gcc

--with-input=gcc-toolchain=… is a no-op: no package has a 
  ‘gcc-toolchain’ input.

It exists only because people kept installing the ‘unwrapped’ (now 
hidden) GCC package with ‘guix install gcc’ and expecting a 
working compiler.  gcc-toolchain wraps the entire toolchain so ‘$ 
gcc my.c’ produces working binaries.  It is not used internally by 
Guix.

> So aparently it worked.

It worked in the sense that the package was built successfully 
with gcc@7.5.  If your undescribed issue was a build issue, it's 
not deterministic.  If it's a run-time bug, whatever it is will 
still happen.

It's not surprising, it's proof that your transformation's a 
no-op.  Guix is very good at hashing changes; it doesn't ‘miss’ or 
cache stale things.

Two things that work (but read both):

  ~$ guix build --with-input=gcc=gcc@10 mesa
  guix build: package 'gcc' has been superseded by 'gcc-toolchain'

Is this why you tried =gcc-toolchain= above? :-)  The hint isn't 
relevant in this edge case, you can ignore it for once.

I've included this option because it's the working variant of your 
first command.  However, it rebuilds the *entire* dependency chain 
of Mesa with GCC 10: glibc, bash, ed, python-minimal, guile…

It's cool that Guix makes this task so easy, but you probably want 
just

  ~$ guix build --with-c-toolchain=mesa=gcc-toolchain@10 mesa

This special-case option will do the right things to rebuild 
(only) mesa with the toolchain of your choice.  Note the =mesa= 
difference in syntax: the package you want to rebuild, not the one 
you want to replace:

  […]
  C compiler for the host machine: gcc (gcc 10.3.0 "gcc (GCC) 
  10.3.0")
  C linker for the host machine: gcc ld.bfd 2.34
  C++ compiler for the host machine: c++ (gcc 10.3.0 "c++ (GCC) 
  10.3.0")
  C++ linker for the host machine: c++ ld.bfd 2.34
  […]

Not a user of PACKAGE-INPUT-REWRITING so I'll leave that to 
someone else.

Kind regards,

T G-R

This might be because GCC & friends are implicit inputs brought in 
through the build system, not listed by the package itself.

Two notes after a calming walk in the woods:

Not true: 2 do.  I meant that ‘the toolchain’ used to build 
everything…

> It is not used internally by Guix.

…is not the "gcc-toolchain" package as such.

> (package (inherit gcc->gcc-10 mesa) …)

Just turn it around:

  (define-public mesa/gcc-10
    (package
      (inherit mesa)
      (native-inputs
        `(("gcc" ,gcc-10)
          ,@(package-native-inputs mesa)))))

Thanks, that worked! I read most of the Guix manual, but I had forgotten 
about the `--with-c-toolchain` option. Searching for it in the manual
also made me find the `package-with-c-toolchain` function, which does
the same thing from Scheme code.

Though there’s something weird about Mesa’s build process. Different 
libraries end up linked to different GCC versions. :-/

The 27yz… build is the GCC 10.3.0 one, and 6k4wj… is the GCC 7.5.0 one.

Perhaps my time would be better spent trying to help get ‘core-updates’
in shape rather than trying to work around a 4 years old compiler bug¹.

¹ https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=866354 – the bug is
in armel, but I’m getting the exact same error message in Mesa, so I
suspect it also affects i686.

Hello,

Thank you for your response.

Ah! Thanks for the information. I didn’t have a clear picture of the

Right, it still happens. It’s a runtime issue. “worked” here referred to 
triggering a package rebuild and having it completing successfuly.

Nice. It’s good to understand that piece of the puzzle.

I didn’t even try this command actually. I had noticed that I couldn’t 
manipulate the ‘gcc’ package from the command line, so I assumed that 
passing it to `--with-input` wouldn’t work. I thought it was only possible 
to reference it in Scheme code, via the ‘gcc’ variable.

It’s very cool indeed! Unfortunately, here it’s failing early in the 
rebuild process, while trying to build ‘bash-minimal’:

```

Yes, that is indeed what I was looking for. Unfortunately, as I mentioned 
in my other email, with this option Mesa builds some libraries with GCC 
10.3.0 and others with 7.5.0. There must be something strange going on with 
its build system.

I was able to use ‘package-with-c-toolchain’, though I get the same mixed-
toolchains result.

As I mentioned in the other email, I’m beginning to wonder if my time would 
be better spend trying to help getting core-updates ready. Then I’d get 
gcc-8 by default.

Thanks for the clarification.

This worked (except for the mixed-toolchains issue):

(define-public mesa-10
  (package
    (inherit (package-with-c-toolchain mesa
                                       `(("toolchain" ,gcc-toolchain-10))))
    (name "mesa-10")))
