Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 663461
qpid and qmf libraries need to be available on PPC, zSeries architectures
Last modified: 2012-04-03 10:03:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Presently, qpid-cpp is only build for x86 and x86_64 architectures. qpid-cpp contains both RPMs for the qpid broker as well as client libraries for qpid/QMF.
This bug does not provide the qpid broker for PPC and zSeries. Just the qpid/qmf libraries.
These libraries are needed to provide Matahari agent infrastructure on these additional platforms.
In order to do this, we'll need to conditionally compile out certain features on these add'l architectures. For example, we do not need the HA broker functionality so we can compile out the BuildRequires for corosync. This means we need to add some arch conditionals to the spec file. An example of how to do this is here:
Currently there are two missing requires - cluster and corosync.
Both are not needed on other archs.

qpid-cpp patch for support of ppc64 and s390x architectures
This patch enables building on all architectures. For s390x it disables rdma subpackage. For s390x and ppc64 it disables cluster subpackage.
qpid-qmf was rebuilt (qpid-qmf-0.12-2.el6) to remove this dependency.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Note that qpid-cpp on architectures beyond x86 and x86_64 is only supported in the context of its use with Matahari.
