Build Failure with Ubuntu 22.04

Continuing the discussion from CoreELEC 20.0-Nexus_alpha2 Discussion:

(Ubuntu 22.04) Persistent build failure at nfs-utils (201/354). Have tried clearing it out and restarting build with same result. No problems previously.

The check what is wrong with that package: you should see log file mention.

Yes, it’s looking for rpc.h. I have checked that this is in the tirpc folder of /usr/include, but maybe it is looking for it in /usr/include/rpc.

I can maybe skip the package or fudge it, but wondered if it was a current generic CE build issue. Or maybe it’s associated with Ubuntu 22.04, since CoreELEC recommend 20.04.
checking for pthread.h… yes
checking rpc/rpc.h usability… no
checking rpc/rpc.h presence… no
checking for rpc/rpc.h… no
configure: error: Header file rpc/rpc.h not found - maybe try building with --enable-tirpc
e[1;31mFAILURE: scripts/build nfs-utils:host during configure_host (default)e[0m

I think this patch is needed

Thanks! I edited the With one more change to avahi (pre_configure_target to NCONFIGURE=0) to overcome error, I now have a successful compile with 22.04.

It should now build on Ubuntu 22.04 without making any extra changes to the packages.
