Description Paul Howarth 2007-06-04 10:15:46 EDT
Full build log available here:

Problem appears to be that site-packages/Crypto/PublicKey/_fastmath.so is not
created, and this is probably due to setup.py not finding the GMP library. I
speculate (not having a ppc64 box) that the existing patch for x86_64 would also
fix ppc64 if applied.

The absence of python-crypto from the F7 ppc64 repository is causing dependency
problems for bittorrent, which requires it.
Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2007-06-04 10:26:30 EDT
Yes, that patch seems to have been the wrong way to handle it from the start.
Perhaps something like the following, instead of applying that patch:

sed -i s:/lib:/%_lib:g setup.py
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2007-06-04 11:25:40 EDT
Committed and built in rawhide. Could probably do with a F-7 build but I'll
leave that to package maintainer, along with questions about whether to add a
disttag, etc.
