Description Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-07-27 10:26:04 UTC
Description of problem:
festival is not available for the x86_64 architecture, the i386 build
does run fine after satisfying 32-bit libtermcap dependency

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-06 21:32:27 UTC
Does a native 64-bit build (if built by hand) work?

Comment 2 Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-08-07 20:59:26 UTC
Created attachment 102504 [details]

Negative, see the attached log file with the output of
rpm -bb with the original specfile
rpm -bb with ExclusiveArch removed from the specfile
manual build attempt

Comment 3 Colin Charles 2004-09-19 06:34:19 UTC
It is also not being built on powerpc and ppc64 with the current
rawhide tree. URLs to look at confirming this:

gnome-speech has a dependency on festival, so this also means that
gnome-speech isn't available on ppc/ppc64

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-09-19 11:23:36 UTC
I believe festival is an artificial dependency in gnome-speech. 
Unless festival can be made to build on other archs, we should
probably back out that artificial dep.

Comment 5 Jonathan Blandford 2004-09-19 14:54:14 UTC
gnome-speech doesn't really require festival to work.  It is a set of
drivers (you could use it with a hardware speech card for instance),
but using it with festival is the common case.  The dependency is i386

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-09-19 21:12:30 UTC
I suppose a %ifarch conditional Requires would work?

Comment 7 Jonathan Blandford 2004-09-20 15:24:47 UTC
It has that already. (-:  I don't think that's what this bug is about,

Comment 8 Colin Charles 2004-09-20 23:57:30 UTC
No, the bug's about getting festival built elsewhere. Can we do that?
Because gnome-speech is useless w/o it :)

Comment 9 Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-09-21 11:05:30 UTC
gnome-speech-0.3.5-1.x86_64 seems to work with festival-1.4.2-25.i386

Comment 10 Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-09-24 22:04:23 UTC
I am closing this bug as festival-1.4.2-25.i386.rpm is now included in
x86_64 rawhide.

Comment 11 Axel Thimm 2005-01-30 05:14:55 UTC
There is still the open question whether festival can be built
natively on x86_64 and others. According to the project group in
Edinbourgh it is supposed to be portable.

Not everything can be built against the i386 package. Could someone
reopen this?
