Not sure. I need to fire up my wheezy box and see what happens. I assume you remembered to delete the out folder and that this is an error during the build.

Might take a bit I need to update it since I have not used it in a while.

I've deleted the whole thing before-hand actually, just to be sure that I didn't miss a directory.
Waiting for your update then, thank you.

Well this is going to take a while. I was using chroot in a different build box and just remembered that I deleted it. Building a new wheezy now so.....

In the mean time if you would run the build again and tee the results to a file then post as an attachment here I can look it over to see what is happening (other than python)

There you go, I've put everything even the check out from the SVN so you see everything is fresh.
Also my list of installed packages at the very end.

Mine built just fine. We can go over this tomorrow to see what you are doing/missing. I did see a few things that would make your life easier in your build.txt

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
dpkg-deb: building package `virtualbox-4.2' in `//virtualbox-4.2_4.2.51~ose-43953~Debian~wheezy_amd64.deb'.
dh_builddeb: Compatibility levels before 5 are deprecated (level 4 in use)
dpkg-deb: building package `virtualbox-4.2-dbg' in `//virtualbox-4.2-dbg_4.2.51~ose-43953~Debian~wheezy_amd64.deb'.
dh_builddeb: Compatibility levels before 5 are deprecated (level 4 in use)
make[1]: Leaving directory `/VBox-deb/src/VBox/Installer/linux'
debian@LT-debian-wheezy:/VBox-deb/src/VBox/Installer/linux$

So typical isn't it :)

I'll be around tomorrow, on the forum & IRC, whichever your prefer.

Thank you for all your efforts and good night to you

I was able to replicate your issue but have not been able to fix it yet. You can disable the build of webservices and it should complete.
Also add this to your LocalConfig to stop the spam of the frence language that they have removed.

Very glad to hear you could replicate it!
I will have to keep the Webservices build on since the Java XPCOM is broken - it is my only option to keep coding against the API for now.

That being the case you should build the run instead and of course it will install to /opt, but I run that way and have forever without any issue at all.

I should also say this is not uncommon when they change code. The rpm and deb build installers aren't top on their priority to fix.

Yes I'm doing that on the non-deb builder, it works fine and I'm happy with it.
I just really liked the idea of a .deb :)

Thank you for your much appreciated support.
