Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211766
Fails to build on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
python-reportlab x86_64 build is an older version than the i386 build. Looks like this is from pre-buildsystem time.
Failed due to sitelib<->sitearch, so I syned with FC-4:
Build servers cause trouble currently, so it may be necessary
to requeue this one.
[re-using this bug with changed Summary...]
Rebuilding the src.rpm on an x86_64 machine fails.
So, hammer3 hangs, but hammer2 (x86_64 machine) failed to rebuild the
It installed some files into python_sitearch, not python_sitelib, and
then failed to include the installed /usr/lib64/python... files.
I've hacked the FC-3 spec to use a link from /usr/lib64 to /usr/lib
during %install, but that is sub-optimal. Job #20093 succeeded. noarch
package will be in next push.
Keeping this bug open, so you are aware that rebuild failures can
happen when an x86_64 build server is used.
I assume that FC-4 and newer are affected, too.
Thanks for the heads up.
patching setup.py to use this:
from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib
package_path = pjoin(get_python_lib(), 'reportlab')
package_path = pjoin(package_home(distutils.__dict__), 'site-packages',
seems to work for me under RHEL4 which is more or less the same as FC3
FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.
Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.
Your friendly BZ janitor :-)
