Description Peter Robinson 2012-03-06 18:57:23 UTC
dietlibc doesn't build on ARM. ARM seems like the ultimate platform for dietlibc so it would be good to get it fixed.

Comment 1 Enrico Scholz 2012-03-06 21:55:54 UTC
makefile does

| MYARCH:=$(shell uname -m | sed -e 's/i[4-9]86/i386/' -e 's/armv[3-6]t\?e\?[lb]/arm/')

and compares output with 'arm'.  What does 'uname -m' return on Fedora ARM platforms?

Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2012-03-07 09:46:34 UTC
armv7l and armv5tel on my platforms, there could be other variants.

Possibly use armv[567]* or similar.

Add armv7hl to the Makefile

I've checked the sed expression and it seems that the armv7hl architecture would not match.

This patch for the pkg-git-repo adds a new patch for the Makefile that corrects this and updates the .spec (and also adds a .0.arm to the release).

A test-build has successfully finished (compile test only):

Please apply the patch and file a bug upstream.

Thanks,
Niels
