Description Mattia Verga 2021-05-02 08:30:46 UTC
Is there a reason for libraw not being available in RHEL for secondary arches, such as aarch64?
This prevents me from packaging several astronomy related tools in EPEL (unless I manually exclude all missing arches).

All the desktop related packages (where LibRaw belongs) are part of the aarch64 Technical Preview that is limited (package wise) - see https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/8.3_release_notes/rhel-8-3-0-release#technology-preview_desktop .

Thank you for mentioning your use case!

I think that this is the correct way to proceed.
