Description Christopher Meng 2015-02-26 08:35:34 UTC
Building roxterm which requires po4a, failed at dependency issue in buildroot:

DEBUG util.py:366:  Getting requirements for roxterm-2.9.5-1.el7.src

DEBUG util.py:366:   You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
DEBUG util.py:366:   You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Then we discussed this and found ppc64 doesn't include perl-gettext, I hope this can be fixed since po4a is required by many other packages.

Comment 7 Yaakov Selkowitz 2015-12-01 03:13:56 UTC
Both perl-gettext and perl-Text-WrapI18N are missing on aarch64, leading to the same issue when bootstrapping EPEL 7 there.

Comment 12 Yaakov Selkowitz 2016-11-04 19:34:11 UTC
Shipped in RHELSA 7.3 for aarch64.  Leaving open for ppc64*.

Comment 13 Lubos Kocman 2017-02-03 13:52:09 UTC
I'm giving this a devel_ack+ however, I'm bit afraid of what Peter said, if we'll hit missing dependencies on either aarch or ppc, we'll close this as won't fix

Hi , but #c12 says aarch64 is already fixed just left ppc64*.
Also, maybe anyone can suggest a better solution for po4a commit [1] ? 
What about ? 

%if 0%{?rhel} == 7 
# Until got perl-gettext on epel7-ppc64*
%ifnarch {%power64} 
Requires: perl(Locale::gettext) >= 1.01

%if 0%{?rhel} != 7
# Optional, but package is quite useless without
Requires: perl(Locale::gettext) >= 1.01


Comment 26 Sergio Basto 2017-05-31 11:11:00 UTC
FYI , we have po4a to fix as next step [1] , have you built also po4a on ppc64/ppc64le ? and on aarch64 ?
