Description Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-25 14:01:28 EDT
/lib/libiw.so is using -mtune=i386 as opposed to the i686 tuning options
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2004-09-27 14:58:57 EDT
Would this be considered bad form at Red Hat?

Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2004-09-27 15:11:02 EDT
Alternatively, patch the makefile so we can pass RPM_OPT_FLAGS on the
make command line ;)

OK, something like this seems to work. Just test compiled it.
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2004-09-27 15:41:13 EDT
The "sed" approach achieves a similar thing:

So, you can pass RPM_OPT_FLAGS on the command-line, too (rpmbuild
exports it already).

If you patch the Makefile, you probably want to apply this (OPT_FLAGS
is not used anywhere in the tarball):

Comment 5 Rik van Riel 2004-09-27 15:48:46 EDT
It does, but it doesn't look quite as future-proof.  I could imagine
the upstream maintainers adding something in front of the -Os one day,
causing the sed to remove an option it shouldn't remove...

I've applied the patch from comment #2, except using OPT_FLAGS instead
of RPM_OPT_FLAGS.  This way the Makefile does use the OPT_FLAGS
argument passed to it and things get compiled right.

Thanks for helping fix this. wireless-tools-0.27-pre25-2 should be
Comment 6 Michael Schwendt 2004-09-27 15:55:39 EDT
Okay. The sed expression does not remove anything else than -Os,
however. \1 and \2 put back the parts around -Os.
Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:52:40 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
Comment 8 Christopher Aillon 2006-08-29 18:55:49 EDT
This looks fixed anyway.
