Description Scott Bambrough 2000-07-27 13:32:13 EDT
$ cat /etc redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot)

$ uname -a
Linux sparc-os 2.2.14-5.0 #1 Mon Jul 17 14:02:06 EDT 2000 sparc64 unknown

$ rpm --version
RPM version 3.0.4

RPM is from package rpm-3.0.4-0.48.

I'm trying to build the gcc-2.96 RPM from Rawhide.  I have copied the spec file and source files to the appropriate places.  If I run rpm -bp 
gcc.spec, patches in an ifarch sparc clause are not applied.

To investigate, I added the following to the spec file in the patches section:

echo $RPM_ARCH
%ifarch sparc
echo "Its a sparc"
%ifnarch sparc
echo "Its not a sparc"

Running rpm -bp on the spec file gives the following output fragment.

Its not a sparc

This doesn't seem right.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-27 13:44:42 EDT
Both sparc and sparc64 are distinguished (and therfore exclusive) architectures
for rpm

What you need to do is prefix your build command thusly
	sparc32 rpm -ba ...
if you wish to produce sparc packages on a sparc64.
