buildinstall when CanonArch == ppc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:21 EST
If you try to run buildinstall for our ppc product in a buildroot with
'ppc-redhat-linux' in /etc/rpm/platform, the operation fails because
buildinstall doesn't think that either of the kernels are valid (ppc64,
It seems entirely reasonable to have these contents in /etc/rpm/platform, yet it
breaks buildinstall. Perhaps buildinstall (or possibly rhpl) can be taught to be
>>> hl = hdrlist.HeaderListFromFile(path_to_ppc_hdlist)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
line 422, in __getitem__
raise KeyError, "No such package %s" %(item,)
KeyError: 'No such package kernel'
/etc/rpm/platform in buildroots causes other problems -- you won't be able to do
builds with --target properly either.
Is this still an issue?
I haven't hit this in a while.
Closing on the basis of comment #3.
