Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2004-03-04 10:32:11 EST
Jeff, also note that I did _NOT_ do the sparcv8 regex, you said to
submit what I had and you would try to do fix the regex for sparcv8.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-03-10 17:19:44 EST
Fixed all that is relevant for rpm. Will get to
fixing the regexes for sparcv8 in installplatform
as soon as I get to see one.

Off to teach config.sub about sparcv8.

Could you add sparcv8 parallel to sparcv9 in config.sub? Thanks.
Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2004-03-10 17:54:46 EST
Jeff, anything from a SparcStation4 or above is sparcv8 compatible,
including all UltraSPARCs. You should not have trouble getting access
to one, if all else fails, ask Peter Jones.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-03-10 21:42:47 EST
I think you want the changes in redhat-rpm-config too, no?
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2004-03-11 03:48:45 EST
Patch sent to config maintainer.
Comment 8 R P Herrold 2004-03-12 00:30:29 EST

will this work as a test box?

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2004-03-12 00:35:21 EST
Following on to Comment 7, the sparcv8 patch
I sent upstream to the config maintainer, was accepted.
Comment 10 Tom "spot" Callaway 2004-03-12 00:38:20 EST
Russ: Yes, an Ultra 1 is sparcv9 (and thus, sparcv8), but to be fair,
there are already several sparcv8 compatible machines running within
Red Hat, most within 20 feet of Jeff's desk. :)
Comment 11 Elliot Lee 2004-12-02 16:07:30 EST
Fixes are in redhat-rpm-config
