Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246732
Unable to build lightning for ppc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
The bug is blocked, becaused I have some compiling issues on the ppc paltform.
I have contact upstream over the mailing list of the project.
This is a splitt of ob BZ #240230
I have found out the reasons, why the test suite fails on the ppc arch.
On modern(??) ppc64 system there are a execstack protection feature which
prohibit s the execution of dynamic created code from the stack. but this is
what the lightning test suite doing
When I do a 'execstack -s incr' in test test directory, the the 'incr' test is
running as expected.
That's the same as on modern i386 systems then. The broken package needs fixing,
lightning-1.2-9.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
