RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Carl George 🤠 2020-03-06 00:28:58 UTC
Description of problem:
rpm in CentOS is currently built without ndb support.  Community members are interested in enabling this in CentOS Stream.


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

Additional info:
If this is determined to be acceptable, I'll attach a patch here from that pull request.

Comment 2 Davide Cavalca 2020-03-10 23:16:34 UTC
We (Facebook) have currently deployed ndb fleetwide on CentOS 7, and would like to be able to do the same on CentOS Stream. Enabling ndb support in rpm won't take effect unless one sets the %_db_backend ndb macro, so it should be safe (and a noop for existing systems).

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2020-03-13 13:17:45 UTC
Enabling ndb support in RHEL would require much more than just flicking a configure switch, such a thing would need to go through the official enhancement request process.

We can and should fix the spec thinko/typo that prevents "--with ndb" build option from working as intended though, starting with Fedora. So ACK for this commit https://git.centos.org/fork/malmond/rpms/rpm/c/d9949767ee5198b0fdbf2f527a385ce02532181a but NAK for actually enabling it.

Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2020-04-15 12:25:35 UTC
Closing as WONTFIX per comment #3, the with/without typo is being handled separately through bug 1770972.

Comment 5 Carl George 🤠 2020-04-15 14:10:16 UTC
I believe the typo fix is being handled in bug 1817010, not but 1770972.

Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2020-04-15 14:11:25 UTC
Oops, that's correct. Sorry (too much bug number copy-paste here for one afternoon)
