Description Karsten Hopp 2014-02-28 12:44:13 UTC
Description of problem:
systemd recently picked up a build requirement on libseccomp. Unfortunately libseccomp is exclusivearch x86 and arm.
Please add support for ppc(32bit) and ppc64. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
libseccomp not available on ppc*

Comment 1 Paul Moore 2014-02-28 12:50:54 UTC
Unfortunately, the upstream kernel does not have support for the BPF seccomp filter on ppc and ppc64.  Until the kernel adds support there is nothing we can do for libseccomp.

Comment 2 Paul Moore 2015-02-18 16:19:57 UTC
We've created a libseccomp branch to hold the powepc patches:

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2015-07-27 08:59:32 UTC
FYI: ppc 32bit isn't supported anymore by any recent Fedora release, but we have ppc64le now.

Comment 4 Paul Moore 2015-11-04 13:41:54 UTC
Quick update: with Linux v4.3 out I've asked IBM to help with the verification of ppc64{le} support in libseccomp.

Comment 5 Paul Moore 2016-02-29 21:23:05 UTC
We've released a new version upstream which should resolve this problem; an updated libseccomp package is now available for Fedora Rawhide.
