Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 325741
pm-utils requires vbetool which is x86 only
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:19:25 EST
Description of problem:
There was a recent change to pm-utils to make it depend on vbetool. Since
vbetool is x86 specific this prevents pm-utils and hence the majority of the
gnome rpms since they depend on pm-utils.
I am unclear as to the "right" thing being pm-utils not depending on vbetool for
non-x86 OR gnome not depending on pm-utils but one or the other will be needed
in order for Fedora to work on non-x86.
I am running into this while trying to bring up Fedora on ia64 so I imagine
those working on bringing up sparc and arm on Fedora are seeing this as well. I
also imagine this is an issue for ppc.
I am open to suggestions on how we can make this portable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
worked OK in pm-utils-0.99.3-11.fc8
After looking at the spec file I see that ppc and ppc64 are already accounted for:
%ifnarch ppc ppc64
Can we update this to include ia64 (and for that matter sparc and arm since I
know others are in the process of bringing up fedora on those arches as well).
Or, perhaps it would be better to change this to something along the lines of:
%ifarch i386 x86_64
However I am not sure if this is the correct syntax.
fixed in cvs
