poky-dunfell-23.0.2: WARNING: Your host glibc verson (2.32) is newer than that in uninative (2.31). Disabling uninative so that sstate is not corrupted.


Hello list,

The warning in the subject has turned into an error.

I'm building a Yocto project based on poky-dunfell-23.0.2

I get this error:
ERROR: dpkg-native-1.19.7-r0 do_compile: oe_runmake failed

| ../../../dpkg-1.19.7/lib/compat/strsignal.c: In function ‘test_strsignal’:
| ../../../dpkg-1.19.7/lib/compat/strsignal.c:71:10: error: ‘sys_siglist’ undeclared (first use in this function)
|    71 |   return sys_siglist[s];

I found the reason for this error:
Release notes of glibc 2.32:

* The deprecated arrays sys_siglist, _sys_siglist, and sys_sigabbrev
  are no longer available to newly linked binaries, and their declarations
  have been removed from <string.h>.  They are exported solely as
  compatibility symbols to support old binaries.  All programs should use
  strsignal instead.

To solve it I could downgrade the glibc library version of my system (general consensus on forums is that, that is a bad idea).
Other option:
In the master branch I find a recipe for dpkg 1.20.5, can I simply upgrade the dpkg version (1.19.7) in the dunfell release with the master branch version (1.20.5)?
Could it break anything and how do I know it will solve my problem? Other then try it.
Or is there another solution?
