This bug is just a bit short on info, I'd say.

Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2006-12-27 23:54:50 UTC
True - I hit go too quickly ;-)

I've found with quite packages fail on the PPC/PPC64 when they work fine on the
x86/x86_64 builds. Usually it's smp_mflags, but it's things which shouldn't trip
them up going kerfewy (in one case, it built under x86 and x86_64 in mock
without a problem but died hideously under PPC as part of glibc [IIRC] was not
ported to PPC - this was a while back and may be fixed now).

It seems to me that PPC is a law unto itself where things which build under PPC
will fail under PPC64, but as there isn't an ExcludeArch PPC64, both the PPC and
PPC64 suffer.

Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2006-12-28 11:18:07 UTC
We don't build Extras for ppc64. I'm not entirely sure what you're saying.
There's certainly no part of glibc which was not ported to PowerPC -- perhaps
you're thinking of dietlibc, which tripped over a compiler bug?

If you've filed a temporary ExcludeArch for autogen, please make sure it gets
fixed quickly. If you need access to a PowerPC machine for testing, let me know.

Builds outside mock work fine on FC-5 (after removing the ExcludeArch) and FC-6.
What error were you seeing?

Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2006-12-28 14:15:22 UTC
It built in mock for FC-5 too. Fixed in 5.8.7-6.1.fc5
