Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-14 09:57:14 EDT
It doesn't seem to be in rawhide either:

# yum -y --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo --enablerepo=updates-debuginfo
--enablerepo=updates-testing-debuginfo --enablerepo=updates-testing
--enablerepo=development install gstreamer-plugins-good.ppc64
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Nothing to do
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-14 09:59:34 EDT
The package was actually built though:
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2007-08-14 10:11:36 EDT
why would you want this?  ppc64 packages on ppc are treated as the multilib
packages, as such only specifically needed things are directly considered
(kernel/glibc/etc..), then everything else is a result of the -devel package
being considered for cross arch development, and the direct dependencies
therein.  Nothing that matches the above (simplified) criteria pulls in
gstreamer-plugins-good as ppc64.  Is this causing any real problem?
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-14 10:46:42 EDT
It's needed for totem, rhythmbox, and any gstreamer applications to run on
PPC64. Otherwise, I might just excludearch ppc64 for those packages.
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-14 10:49:02 EDT
Note that there's a requires in Totem for this package. Should I have added the
specific arch in the deps?

$ grep plugins-good totem.spec 
Requires: gstreamer-plugins-good >= %gstreamer_plugins_good_version
BuildRequires: gstreamer-plugins-good >= %gstreamer_plugins_good_version
- Add gstreamer-plugins-good as a builddep so that gconfaudiosink
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:58:40 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2008-05-16 17:02:47 EDT
We don't select gstreamer plugins to be multilib packages when composing a tree.
Theoretically we should.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2008-12-05 14:08:53 EST
Will be fixed in 0.4.3-1.
