Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239078
need to %ifarch some subpackages
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:06:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Neither mono (bug 238950) nor ocaml (bug 239077) can exist on ppc64. Ergo, these
subpackages need %ifarched.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build.
Oops, no mono or caml. Build fails.
The Gentoo folks seem to have ppc64 support for ocaml.
As David knows, there's an ongoing effort (with his help) to get ocaml working
on ppc64. I'm not aware of a similar effort for mono, unfortunately. As a
result, I've disabled the -ocaml and -sharp subpackages, and built 2.12-7.fc7,
which I've requested RelEng include in Fedora 7. I'll happily re-enable -ocaml
(and -sharp) if/when the BRs are available for ppc64.
I'll update this bug when I hear a final word from RelEng.
