Description Fabian Deutsch 2013-08-26 06:29:53 UTC
Description of problem: ovirt-node currently doesn't build on PPC/ARM because some requirements are not available on these platforms.
Comment 1 Ramon Medeiros 2013-09-03 15:44:17 UTC
What requirements are not available. Can I help?
Comment 2 Ramon Medeiros 2013-09-03 15:45:21 UTC
I'm looking for PPC support!
Comment 3 Fabian Deutsch 2013-09-03 15:46:49 UTC
Hey Ramon, the reason is that some dependencies are not available on ARM (dunno about PPC). E.g. libvirt cim or so it was. Additionally - at least on arm - the installation will probably fail as it is tied to grub2?.

As for PPC, it's not a primary architecture on Fedora (AFAIK). The main problem here is that we depend on qemu-kvm which is not available on ppc.

The main > problem here is that we depend on qemu-kvm which is not available on ppc. qemu-kvm is available on ppc64: http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=208990 *Running* KVM on PPC64 requires special hardware with KVM support though. libvirt-cim and grub2 are also available on Fedora ppc64.

We're considering a different node implementation for oVirt 4.0. Hence, closing this RFE. Please re-open if relevant.
