Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426280
Ship Server applications in PPC64 as well (vs. just 32bit)
Last modified: 2008-05-21 11:40:58 EDT
The default user-space for RHEL 5 on PPC64 is 32bit for performance reasons.
While in generally makes a lot of sense, it poses an unneccesary limit on the
ability to address large memory in server applications such as mysql.
So we need to add relevant applications as ppc64 as well:
* java on the Supplementary (available from IBM)
httpd and tomcat5 packages exist in RHEL5.2-Server-20080326.0 as ppc only (no ppc64)
The other packages from the list are OK.
I had the package names a bit off. Corrected names checked into CVS. Fix
should appear in the next set of trees.
Verified with RHEL5.2-Server-20080404.nightly (ppc).
