We have focused on making *binary* packages reproducible. I believe the issue you are seeing is unreproducible source packages. The benefits of the later are quite small, so I don't think anyone seriously looked into the latter problem. > > * in beignet I have an unreproducible .pch (precompiler header) file - > > any hints on what could be going on here?

In any cases, first thing is to understand why you get a different Build ID in the library. The real source has been hidden by strip.

I should have read pbuilder(8) more closely. Thanks! -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
