Description Kaleb KEITHLEY 2017-07-25 07:33:06 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1474743 +++

Description of problem:
The latest update of Ceph in rawhide just excluded several Fedora architectures

 ExcludeArch:   i686 armv7hl ppc64

As a result this has broken downstream packages that depend on ceph like libvirt & QEMU.

Please re-enable these architectures asap.

If there are build problems then plesae create blocker bugs against the arch exclude trackers


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

It doesn't build on those platforms.

File a bug against Ceph.

--- Additional comment from Daniel Berrange on 2017-07-25 07:29:19 EDT ---

That's not the way Fedora works. As per the packaging guidelines link above, maintainers need to explicitly track any build problems on architectures & mark them as blocking the arch trackers so the problem can be resolved.

see build log at

Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2017-07-25 09:05:20 EDT
cmake is failing to find the Java JNI for some reason

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
  Could NOT find JNI (missing: JAVA_AWT_LIBRARY)
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:377 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE)
  /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindJNI.cmake:310 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS)
  src/java/CMakeLists.txt:2 (find_package)

Since java is an optional feature of ceph, please at least try disabling java for arm7 as a temporary workaround to allow the main native libs to biuld.
Comment 3 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2017-07-25 13:58:13 EDT
Still fails: Out of memory.

> The ARM builders (both ARMv7 and aarch64) have 24 Gb of memory, which is

Comment 5 Boris Ranto 2017-07-26 09:08:39 EDT
AFAICR, we were hitting out of memory errors in the builds quite randomly even on other platforms (e.g. i686). I guess this might have more to do with the platforms being 32-bit, i.e. having 4G per process, than the overall amount of memory on the machines. Alternatively, this may have something to do with not enough disk space?

Does a rebuild help or is this reproducible always?
Comment 6 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2017-07-26 09:40:44 EDT
In a very small sample size (IOW not statistically valid) it seems to build reliably on i686.

atm I'm trying Björn Esser's suggestion to see if that helps.
