Aspell doesn't work on ppc64
Last modified: 2013-04-12 15:04:32 EDT
Description of problem:
On a kickstart multilib installation of RHEL4 on ppc64, aspell doesn't work
at all by default:
Error: No word lists can be found for the language "en_US".
After some time of investigation, it turned out that aspell is multilib but
the dictionary rpms are just ppc, and aspell (ppc64) doesn't find the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. on a ppc64 box with both aspell.ppc and aspell.ppc64 installed (this is
apparently the default):
2. run aspell check some.file
3. see what happens
the error message above, no spell checking
this appears to be a workaround: running aspell with --dict-dir=/usr/lib/aspell
Only important issues like performance and security are fixed in RHEL 4.9 and
later. This bug does not meet necessary criteria and is therefore closed.
The product changed to el5.
