Description Flags
qpid-cpp patch for support of ppc64 and s390x architectures none

Description Perry Myers 2010-12-15 16:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
Presently, qpid-cpp is only build for x86 and x86_64 architectures.  qpid-cpp contains both RPMs for the qpid broker as well as client libraries for qpid/QMF.

This bug does not provide the qpid broker for PPC and zSeries.  Just the qpid/qmf libraries.

These libraries are needed to provide Matahari agent infrastructure on these additional platforms.
Comment 3 Perry Myers 2011-07-11 16:16:33 EDT
In order to do this, we'll need to conditionally compile out certain features on these add'l architectures.  For example, we do not need the HA broker functionality so we can compile out the BuildRequires for corosync.  This means we need to add some arch conditionals to the spec file.  An example of how to do this is here:

Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2011-07-12 08:37:11 EDT
Currently there are two missing requires - cluster and corosync.
Both are not needed on other archs.

qpid-cpp patch for support of ppc64 and s390x architectures

This patch enables building on all architectures. For s390x it disables rdma subpackage. For s390x and ppc64 it disables cluster subpackage.
Comment 11 Ted Ross 2011-08-15 09:55:31 EDT
qpid-qmf was rebuilt (qpid-qmf-0.12-2.el6) to remove this dependency.
