Hi all,
I'm trying to use digger to find what commit introduced https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23273 . It is introduced somewhere between 2.094 and 2.095.
Because I'm on an Apple M1 chip, it looks I can only bootstrap with DMD 2.099 or newer (earlier compilers give an error "ld: section __DATA/__thread_bss has type zero-fill but non-zero file offset file '../generated/build.o' for architecture x86_64".
My problem: 2.099 cannot build 2.094, because it complains about:
src/dmd/todt.d(50): Deprecation: module dmd.glue is not accessible here, perhaps add 'static import dmd.glue;'
src/dmd/todt.d(50): Error: alias dmd.todt.toSymbol conflicts with alias dmd.todt.toSymbol at src/dmd/todt.d(49)

I'm stuck. Any ideas on how to proceed?

If this issue is not platform specific (it looks like it's not), then perhaps the fastest solution would be to spin up an linux/amd64 docker container and use Digger from there.

See for example this page on how to use's Docker Buildx's integrated emulation support:

It would already help a lot if digger would not build DMD with -w de.

I've got it to work with ini settings:

extraSpec = +dmd#12215 + dmd/f865abf9d1053de30409be97240bc61ed71bf931 +dmd/967c2a70634d07b4c7e2f9b3ecfb0112bb899130
[build]
components.enable.druntime = false
components.enable.phobos = false

and a custom object.d in my test directory.
