Description Adam Tkac 2008-09-30 04:52:22 EDT
Description of problem:
when I run rpm command (simple "rpm -q rpm" for example) it prints error about undefined macros

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa |grep rpm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "rpm -q rpm"
2. look on output
Actual results:
# rpm -q rpm
error: Macro %__isa_name has empty body
error: Macro %__isa_bits has empty body

Expected results:
# rpm -q rpm

Additional info:
macros __isa_name and __isa_bits are undefined in /usr/lib/rpm/platform/ppc{64,}{i,p}series-linux/macros but they are defined in /usr/lib/rpm/platform/ppc{64,}-linux/macros.

It seems those macros shall be defined everywhere or rpm shall use ppc{64,}-linux platform directories.

Let me know if you need more info or access to machine where this problem is reproducable.
Comment 1 Panu Matilainen 2008-10-01 05:04:12 EDT
This should be fixed in rawhide now (rpm-4.5.90-0.git8514.1). If not, please reopen, then I need to take a closer look at what's going on...

4.5.90-0.git8514.1 looks fine for me.
