Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429878
xserver build failures on ia64/fedora
Last modified: 2009-10-22 08:44:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Since this does not appear to be just fedora specific I have already filed a BZ
at freedesktop for this issue:
I am filing this BZ to be able to track the status of Fedora-ia64 and also to
hopefully get a little more attention for the bug. It appears that ia64 linux
has been overlooked in the recent PCI rework going on in the main branch. Some
ia64 code was actually _removed_ during this work it appears. The 1.4.0
branches still build cleanly for ia64.
I will attach the log showing the build failures.
Have we made a firm decision to jump to the latest top of tree for Fedora 9?
Would it be possible to ship Fedora 9 with the 126.96.36.199 bits?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. build on ia64

build log from rpmbuild
Oops, sorry, meant to upload the logs long ago.
This log is from rpmbuild on a rawhide box. I get the same errors when I build
under mock but the system I run mock on is down at the moment.
This looks tractable. There used to be lots of per-platform PCI stuff that
should all be moot with the new PCI layer, so I suspect we can just stop
building the 460GX and altix and etc crap and win.

I am looking into doing this now. It is more than just the 460GX and altix but
all the ia64 platform specific PCI stuff. I have it stripped out so that it
builds now (but not tested yet). I will post a patch when done.
Just so this is not on your to-do list (which I imagine is long) I will take
ownership of this BZ until I have a patch ready.

patch to remove ia64 specific PCI code
The fix was to remove the ia64 specific PCI code so that we rely on
libpciaccess. I have submitted this patch upstream via:
however it would be very nice to get this into fedora without waiting for it
Reassigning this to you so we can hopefully get this patch into Fedora CVS.
Fixed in 188.8.131.521-5.
