#10605 new defect

usbutils unbuildable offline

Reported by: Rolf Leggewie <…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC6
Keywords: Cc:


usbutils keeps downloading even when that file has just recently been updated. This breaks any offline build where that package is included.

I'm building from the backfire branch.

this patch should solve your problems, except for the very first time, but you solve that by manually keeping a copy of the file.
