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 openssl-devel-*.ppc64
package will need to be created (alongside
openssl-devel-*.ppc). The package should be built something like
rpmbuild --rebuild --target ppc64 openssl-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
I filed four enhancement requests (for ppc64 packages), those
The first request of which (e2fsprogs-devel) has been rejected
by Bill Nottingham, see
Just making you guys aware of this. It may mean the closing
of this request along similar lines.
Note, without the above 64-bit development packages 64-bit
binary production is made difficult.
Only a limited set of development libraries are shipped on biarch
platforms; generally, this is the LSB set.
Bringing in openssl brings in openldap, krb5-libs, etc.; and at least
some of these have headers that aren't wordsize clean, so they can't
be installed together.
