I've been working on Debian packaging. My current latest version https://github.com/ottok/mariadb-5.5 builds OK on localhost with git-buildpackage and dpkg-buildpackage, and also on another build machine that runs git-buildpackage with pbuilder chroots.
However when I upload the same package to Launchpad.net all the versions that build TokuDB fail to successfully build because the test run has TokuDB related fails:
Above was from build log at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/165042892/buildlog_ubuntu-trusty-amd64.mariadb-5.5_5.5.35-1~trusty1~ppa3_FAILEDTOBUILD.txt.gz
More build logs at https://launchpad.net/~mysql-ubuntu/+archive/mariadb/+builds?build_text=&build_state=all
The build failure for saucy-amd64 is identical.
Launchpad uses buildd to build, and as that is the main difference to other build environments, I suspect there is some issue with 5.5.35 and buildd.
