Radek, could you please tell me on wich machine i can reproduce this problem?
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2005-12-20 10:08:30 EST
On any PPC machine with RHEL-4. Success on such machine would mean that our
testing machine wasn't configured properly or it wasn't clean due to long-term
playing with packages and settings. If you don't have a PPC system handy I can do
any tests for you.
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2005-12-20 10:27:19 EST
the rebuild output looks strange! the gamin-devel is not installed on your build
machine! could you please check why the libfam.la is not installed on this
machine? does it fix this problem if you install gamin-devel package?

Could you please attach the output of this commmandline
rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH}\n"
Comment 5 Radek Bíba 2005-12-20 10:42:43 EST
gamin-devel _is_ installed on the machine - gamin-devel-0.1.1-3.EL4.ppc - and
contains /usr/lib/libfam.la (while the build process searches for this file in
/usr/lib64), it's an Everything-instal machine; rpm -qa thus isn't needed afaict.

(BTW, there's no gamin-devel-*.ppc64 available)
Comment 6 Radek Bíba 2006-01-06 11:52:39 EST
Okay, I've found a way how to rebuild the package. Appropriate command is:
setarch ppc rpmbuild OPTIONS FILE
