Include ppc64 frysk
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:01:57 EDT
Would you be so kind to include the frysk-*.ppc64.rpm to the iso?
Hrm, why are there no ppc builds of frysk? How are ppc users supposed to use it?
Well, frysk currently does not build on ppc.
Can you include the ppc64 version for now?
I think that will cause problems if Frysk option is exposed to users. If
selected on ppc arch, they'll get errors about it not being available. It's too
late for the beta, and probably too late for Test3. You'll need to fix the
Also, is it not possible to develop against frysk? Is there no things that
could be put in a -devel subpackage? This is what tells the compose process
that this package is for multilib. I _can_ add it to the extra stuff, but that
gets ugly quick and error prone.

No, it is not, it's an application and does not offer any libraries.

Frysk really needs to be a 64bit application, to be able to trace 64bit processes.
I don't think it is a problem that it is not available for 32bit ppc.
If the install program cannot accomodate for 64-bit only rpm, I think we can fix
it after Test3, and compiling frysk for 32bit ppc is one of the possible options.
But I would be really glad if there were a way to put ppc64 frysk to the Test3 iso.
Hrm, frysk missed Test3, but should be in the rawhide repos after Test3 goes
out, so users can yum install frysk.ppc64.
Yes. We don't see frysk shipped in Test3 for ppc64. Could we make sure that it
gets into FC6 official release? Thanks.
I've fixed the conf files. Check rawhide the next time it is able to go out.
