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.
Assigning to distribution.
Only a limited set of development libraries are shipped on biarch
platforms; generally, the LSB set.
Just curious (as the submitter). I take it then that this
development library will not be created? What does LSB
I am just wanting to a clear answer, so I can pass that
information on to my superiors and IBM.
It's not planned, no.
The LSB development set is libstdc++, glibc, ncurses, pam, X11, zlib.
