fix build issue on secondaryarch

webkitgtk4 doesn't build on s390, ppc64. I have created a patch (for webkitgtk4-2.8.0) which resolves this isuse.

For more info please take a look at


Could you please add the attached patch into webkitgtk4 so we can build it on secondaryarch?


Comment 1 Ngo Than 2015-03-26 13:21:35 UTC
there's the problem on ppc is still "killed gcc", reducing parallel make -jX or Decrease debuginfo with -g1 is a workaround
Please consider it in next build.

Comment 6 Michael Catanzaro 2016-01-17 03:44:15 UTC
I removed this patch since it is a bmalloc patch but s390 builds with USE_SYSTEM_MALLOC (which means bmalloc is never used). But I did so prematurely; bmalloc is still built unconditionally even if it is not used.

I posted a patch upstream: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153190

You don't need to do anything unless you're planning to build again for s390 before the next unstable release (in which case, you'll need to use one patch or the other).

Note You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
