Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 183700
No i586, i686 support in Extras buildsys
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:24:31 EST
I submitted a kernel module test build but got quick bad results:
Package thinkpad-kmod-5_9-2_2_6_15_1_1996_FC5 does not build on any
architectures this build system supports.
Package: ['i586', 'i686']
Build System: ['i386', 'x86_64', 'ppc']
Dan, others, any info about this one? Should building for i586 and i686 be
supported in the FE buildsys?
It's not currently supported for anything, but it definitely will be supported
for kmod building.
Ok, plague 0.4.4 and CVS HEAD have the necessary fixes for kmod support. You'll
still have to manually bump the kernel version that the package depends on for
the time being, but when I update the buildsys tomorrow you should be able to
push your package through for any arches you want on FC3, FC4, and devel.
Can you try now? Buildsys is updated, so the package should make it through.
Looks good, thanks:
While preparing the lirc-kmod test build, I noticed that the ppc repo carries
also ppc64 and ppc64iseries kernels, and we'll probably want to build modules
for them too. Judging from the builder listing at
http://buildsys.fedoraproject.org/build-status/builders.psp I guess there are no
builders available for them at the moment though. Also, a quick peek to the
buildsys sources tells me that ppc64iseries config bits seem to be missing. Is
that correct, or should I just try ppc64 and/or ppc64iseries builds too with
There's no ppc64iseries support yet, and I don't know what that would involve.
I think it's just a matter of adding the correct config magic and things should
just work. But it's not supported right yet.
Ok, opened bug 185387 for that.
