Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 743429
can't build/install anaconda on ARM
Last modified: 2013-05-12 18:27:02 EDT
We're trying to build F15 for ARM and we're facing a problem with anaconda: it fails to build because it can't find an ARM font in data/fonts.
Could ARM be excluded from the IS_FONT_ARCH check like in the attached patch?
Another solution is adding a font for ARM. There is one here: http://www.redhat.com/archives/anaconda-devel-list/2011-September/msg00084.html - I'm not sure which is the more appropriate solution.
Note that we are working with both arm v7 and arm v5. I guess the above screen font would only solve it for v7.

don't try to install a font on ARM
I'd love to just not do this font crud in the first place.

remove screenfont stuff
Something like this? (compile tested only)
Yeah, that's part of it. There's also some stuff in lorax. I've pushed a series of patches to completely get rid of our font handling code now and just rely on systemd to do it. Let me know if there are other issues.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
