Description Eric Schwartz 2002-10-01 20:37:40 UTC
Description of Problem:
h2ph appears to be b0rken on ia64.  I'm trying to port va-ctcs to ia64,
and its 'newburn-generator' program has the line 

require 'asm/page.ph';

This loads /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/ia64-linux/_h2ph_pre.ph, which has a broken
line 16:

unless (defined &__LONG_MAX__) { sub __LONG_MAX__() { &9223372036854775807L } }

This should be (AFAICT):

unless (defined &__LONG_MAX__) { sub __LONG_MAX__() { &9223372036854775807 } }

(note the missing "L" at the end of the number).

Also, asm/page.ph includes /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/ia64-linux/linux/rhconfig.ph,
which has a b0rken line 5:

require '/boot/kernel.ph';

This should be (again, AFAICT):

require 'linux/kernel.ph';

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download ctcs from sourceforge
2. Try to run 'newburn-generator'.

Actual Results:
fails, as above.

Expected Results:
doesn't fail.

Additional Information:
I'm autoconfiscating ctcs; if you're interested in my packages, I can
attach it, but you'll see the same result from the va-ctcs project.

Please do something about this soon.  The changes are not large, and they could

easily work for Errata A.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-11 12:16:54 UTC
Sorry nobody dealt with this report before.  I believe the policy now is RHEL2.1
will not have bug fixes anymore and only security fixes.  If you still really
need this fix in RHEL2.1 officially supported packages, then you must escalate
it through IssueTracker.
