Description Gene Czarcinski 2004-01-29 17:16:14 EST
Description of problem:
On the x86_64, building gcc reqires both the x86_64 glibc-devel and
the i386 glibc-devel so that gcc can generate both 32 bit and 64 bit code.

The current situation is that there is the build fails with no real
obvious reason why.

The problem was that the i386 glibc-devel as not installed.

Assuming than an addition has been mad to glibc-devel of the sort:

%ifarch i386
Provides: glibc-devel-i386

Then this RFE requests the additon of something like the following to
the gcc spec file:

%ifarch x86_64
Buildreq: glibc-devel-i386

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2005-08-18 05:25:55 EDT
gcc-4.0.1-5 and above has:
%ifarch %{multilib_64_archs} sparc ppc
# Ensure glibc{,-devel} is installed for both multilib arches
BuildRequires: /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc.so /lib64/libc.so.6
