hdf5 long double tests fail on ppc64
Last modified: 2011-11-22 17:20:41 EST
Can remove some of the failures by changing CFLAGS to "-m64", but not all:
Testing soft normalized long double -> long conversions *FAILED*
Testing soft normalized long double -> unsigned long conversions *FAILED*
Testing soft long -> long double conversions *FAILED*
Testing soft unsigned long -> long double conversions *FAILED*
-fno-strict-aliasing doesn't help.
Why don't you just %ifnarch ppc64 the call to make check?
Well, I rather not ship a broken library. I'm still in communication with
upstream. Looks like long double support may be considered experimental at this
point, so I may disable the check on ppc64 for now.
Shipping hdf5 on pp64 with tests disabled. Keep testing new releases to see if this gets fixed.
