Hey Daniel Bartholomew,
I made a change in 10.5 that changed the way libmariadbd.a was generated using a scripted version of ar. Generally this is fine except for the kvm-deb-xenial-ppc64le worker node. On a local Power8 xenial docker image I was able to complete the build in the same way without error.
Can I ask for a binutils upgrade on kvm-deb-xenial-ppc64le. - 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.8 worked for me.
Secondly the minor-upgrade-* tests are failing on:
I assume db.t_memory is meant to be a memory storage engine based on the surrounding logs however the error indicates that some data exists there already. Can you ensure it is the same table definition as other builders?
