I’m trying to build emacs-27.1 on Sailfish 18.104.22.168 (Xperia X device) from sources.
The build-configure script demands for a grep version that handles long lines and -e… configure
I see the installed grep version is a grep-replacement coming from busybox-package.
The gnu grep package grep-1:2.5.1a-1.3.1.jolla.armv7hl (jolla) is available through pkconf, however:
pkcon install grep
Fatal error: busybox-symlinks-grep-1.31.0+git7-1.5.1.jolla.armv7hl conflicts with gnu-grep provided by grep-1:2.5.1a-1.3.1.jolla.armv7hl
Deinstallation of busybox prior to installation of gnu-grep fails saying
pkcon remove busybox
Fatal error: This request will break your system!
So is there a secure way of installing the gnu grep package?
Thank for answer,
