    Compiling glibc on Ubuntu 18.04

    I am trying to compile glibc on Ubuntu 18.04. I tried:

    apt build-dep glibc
    apt source glibc
    cd glibc-2.27
    debuild -b -uc -us

    The build failed with 9 tests failures.

    I've found out that there is a version 2.27-3ubuntu1.3 which is newer then what was downloaded with "apt source".
    apt source glibc=2.27-3ubuntu1.3 didn't work, so I've downloaded and opened it manually.
    This reduced the failures to 6. Here is the end of the log:

    debuild: fatal error at line 1152:
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc -ui -b failed

    What could be the problem?

    Re: Compiling glibc on Ubuntu 18.04

    Well, after some work I've found a solution/workaround, and (again) I answer myself

    Edit the file sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/test-errno-linux.c and replace the line:

    quotactl, Q_GETINFO, NULL, -1, (caddr_t) &dqblk);
    quotactl, QCMD(Q_GETINFO,USRQUOTA), NULL, -1, (caddr_t) &dqblk);

    Integrate the change in the build source:

    dpkg-source --commit

    Rename /usr/bin/gdb to something else for the time of compilation.

    Build the package
