Strange dependency problem when building gcc-defaults only on i386

Asked by Giovanni Santini on 2016-05-29

As in title.
I uploaded the 'gcc-defaults ' package to my PPA in order to have an updated version of GCC as default (obviously, before I backported the GCC package).
Build on amd64 on launchpad works fine, but the one on i386 fails for some strange reason.
The builder seems to not like 'build-essential' and 'g++' packages anymore, so he removes them...
Unluckily, they are pretty important dependencies for every package. Whops.

The strange issue is also that I have created a i386 pbuilder setup that works fine.
I have setted up my OTHERMIRROR variable to include the PPA of the toolchain and I've updated it without issues.
The package build works fine also.
I can't figure out why the builder uninstall 'build-essential'.

Nobody has ideas on this one?

Hello?

That PPA is additionally configured to depend on your building-tools PPA; try configuring your pbuilder with both PPAs and seeing if you can reproduce the problem. You can see all of the sources.list entries at the top of https://launchpadlibrarian.net/262263553/buildlog_ubuntu-trusty-i386.gcc-defaults_1.136ubuntu2~0trusty0_BUILDING.txt.gz.

Can you help with this problem?
