Description Menanteau Guy 2015-03-04 17:00:42 UTC
Source package wxPython- used by EPEL7 does not support ppc64le.
A newer version supporting this architecture should be used instead.

Comment 1 Scott Talbert 2015-03-05 01:27:42 UTC
What is wrong with it?  It looks like it successfully built on Jan 24:

Comment 2 Menanteau Guy 2015-03-05 10:40:39 UTC
We are trying to build epel 7 on ppc64le arch (ppc64 little endian).
Currently in koji epel 7 is built on ppc64 (ppc64 big endian) and if we keep same source version to build ppc64LE, then we have a problem because this wxPython- version is to old and does not support yet ppc64 little endian.

It seems to me that the first version supporting ppc64 little endian is wxPython- but I don't know if to fix ppc64le epel 7 build we need to push on epel 7 sources a newer version ( or even newer) or if we need to backport a ppc64le patch on the older version.

Comment 3 Scott Talbert 2015-03-05 14:28:55 UTC
Ah.  I missed the little endian vs big endian thing.  Is there a ppc64le builder available somewhere?

Comment 4 Menanteau Guy 2015-03-05 14:33:13 UTC
not yet, I just have "not reachable" local environment but I can test what ever you need for you.

Comment 5 Scott Talbert 2015-03-05 15:23:29 UTC
Or, alternatively, is there a mock config for ppc64le?

Comment 6 Menanteau Guy 2015-03-05 15:37:22 UTC
For epel 7 ppc64le, the environement is not usable as is but you have a ppc64le koji environment where you can do a scratch build if you need to test a patch.
Here are wxPython builds already done for ppc64le http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=8634

Comment 7 Scott Talbert 2015-03-06 04:46:09 UTC
Hi, I built on F22 PPC koji and it seems it built fine for both ppc64 and ppc64le:

Do you want to try building that SRPM on your local epel7 environment and make sure it builds?  Then I'll bump the epel7 branch.

Comment 8 Menanteau Guy 2015-03-06 11:38:09 UTC
Hum , I am still have a problem with ppc64le arch but it should come from a dependency package and not from wxPython-

it seems the expended line gives to gcc contains "Unsupported architecture 'ppc64le' -O2 -pthread"

Comment 9 Dan Horák 2015-03-06 11:46:54 UTC
fixing it wxGTK now ...

Comment 10 Dan Horák 2015-03-06 12:05:35 UTC
and should be fixed with wxGTK-2.8.12-13.el7

Comment 11 Scott Talbert 2015-03-06 22:22:02 UTC
Can you confirm wxPython now builds with the updated wxGTK?  I am building wxPython- now.

Comment 12 Menanteau Guy 2015-03-11 09:56:40 UTC
wxPython- builds correctly now with update of wxGTK-2.8.12-13 in my epel7 ppc64le local environment.
