Description Suzanne Hillman 2008-03-05 15:59:25 EST
Description of problem:
Not possible to do a build on ppc outside of brew. From the errata:

It looks like maybe this is some sort of wackiness between the host arch and the
target of the build?

extracting debug info from

File not found by glob:

I've always had a hard time reproducing pure ppc{64,32} builds outside of the
buildsystem, FWIW.

Hmm. I did try specifying ppc64, and it just gave:

/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/eclipse-3.2.1/build.xml:237: The following error occurred
while executing this line:
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/eclipse-3.2.1/build.xml:8: The following error occurred
while executing this line:
Duplicate target 'rootFileslinux_gtk_ppc'

Total time: 11 seconds
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.34891 (%build)

I'm not entirely sure I've ever successfully done a ppc (or ppc64) build outside
of brew.  It should work, of course, but there are issues around --target and
--arch and ant variables like buildArch, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use tps-srpmtest or try to run rpmbuild --rebuild   --define "dist .el5"
Actual results:
Fails, see above.

Expected results:
Should work.

Additional info:
Probably not a regression.

RHEL 5 has ended Production Phase 1 and thus only security bugfixes from this point on. Please use Eclipse from RHEL 6 if you need newer Eclipse version.
