Description Menanteau Guy 2015-03-04 16:58:01 UTC
Source package webkitgtk-2.2.4-1 used by EPEL7 does not support ppc64le.
A newer version supporting this architecture should be used instead.

Comment 1 Tomas Popela 2015-03-05 08:09:00 UTC
If I remeber things correctly that support for ppc64le landed in 2.4.x and I don't think we will rebase to that version. The support for ppc64le is the matter of backporting this patch https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135647 to 2.2.x sources.

Comment 2 Yaakov Selkowitz 2015-11-25 17:33:50 UTC
aarch64 is similarly affected.  RHEL 7.2 rebased webkitgtk3 to 2.4.9, so I think it would be appropriate for webkitgtk to do the same.  Furthermore, due to geoclue2's (IMHO erroneous) obsoletes of geoclue (bug 1221940 and bug 1285479), webkitgtk really needs to be updated in order to use the former.
