Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158215
rpmrc and ppc64pseries and ppc64iseries macros files are broken
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:07 EST
Description of problem:
anaconda writes the canonical arch into /etc/rpm/platform. rpm uses this arch by
default when doing package builds. The problem is that the macros files for the
canonical arches are wrong. They don't define %_multilibno and %optflags is wrong.
More importantly, rpmrc doesn't have the correct buildarchtranslate entries for
ppc64pseries and ppc64iseries.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to rebuild any package on a pSeries without using --target
The resulting package will be .ppc64pseries.rpm
The resulting package should be .ppc.rpm
