Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128621
festival is not available for x86_64 architecture
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:19:46 EDT
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):
Does a native 64-bit build (if built by hand) work?
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
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
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.
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
I suppose a %ifarch conditional Requires would work?
It has that already. (-: I don't think that's what this bug is about,
No, the bug's about getting festival built elsewhere. Can we do that?
Because gnome-speech is useless w/o it :)
gnome-speech-0.3.5-1.x86_64 seems to work with festival-1.4.2-25.i386
I am closing this bug as festival-1.4.2-25.i386.rpm is now included in
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
