Description of problem:
Some necessary development 64-bit libraries are not available
on the ppc64 release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

For example the following libraries are not available:


A Red Hat engineer informs me that a e2fsprogs-devel-*.ppc64 
package will need to be created (alongside 
e2fsprogs-devel-*.ppc). The package should be built something like
rpmbuild --rebuild --target ppc64 e2fsprogs-devel*.src.rpm

The request asks for that package to be created and made available.
This is needed to successfully create 64-bit applications.


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

Steps to Reproduce:
1.This is an enhancement request.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-10-04 13:59:49 UTC
Assigning to distribution.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-04 15:19:45 UTC
Only a limited set of development libraries are shipped on biarch
platforms; generally, the LSB set.

Comment 3 Dennis 2004-10-05 01:13:37 UTC
Just curious (as the submitter). I take it then that this
development library will not be created? What does LSB
set mean?

I am just wanting to a clear answer, so I can pass that
information on to my superiors and IBM.


Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-05 03:51:21 UTC
It's not planned, no.

The LSB development set is libstdc++, glibc, ncurses, pam, X11, zlib.
