dpkg architecture problem


Hi friends
I am installed dpkg on my LFS7.2 but there is a problem!
please consider below commands
Code:
root [ /sources ]# uname -m 
i686

root [ /sources ]# gcc --print-libgcc-file-name
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.2/libgcc.a

root [ /sources ]# dpkg --print-architecture 
root [ /sources ]#
I installed dpkg package with below options:
Code:
 ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var \
 --build=i386-gnu-linux  --without-dselect
Code:
root [ /sources ]# dpkg-architecture 
Use of uninitialized value $v{"DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE"} in split at /usr/bin/dpkg-architecture line 183.

what do I do ?

It seems that your other dpkg thread (blfs + dpkg make error!) is still unresolved.

Could this problem be a result of that unresolved problem?

On a side note: I see dpkg versions dpkg-1.9.21 and dpkg-1.13.25 in your other thread (and latest stable is 1.15.8.13). Did you try to mix and match versions?

Hi drunna
thanks for your reply
no I don't want to match versions of dpkg .
I first tried to make dpkg-1.13.25 but I can not.
then I retry with installing dpkg-1.15.8.13 and it installed but with above problem.
I use from VM mashin for building my LFS then I can come back to previous snapshot and retry installing packages.
and then, you right. this problem a result of unresolved problem.
at this point, I came back to my mashine snapshot that this mashine have all LFS packages and I installed just openssl and wget on it.
these are dpkg configure command results:

I ran into this problem building dpkg for a non-Debian operating system. The problem appeared to fix itself when I recompiled dpkg a second time, having installed the previous build of dpkg. Try compiling it again, now that you have dpkg installed, and see if that helps.

(It doesn't seem too surprising for this sort of bug to slip in, since dpkg is always installed on a Debian machine.)
