>>> run()
Segmentation fault

It seems the updated package wasn't pushed to the ppc64 repositories. I am able to see it on the x86 repository though. Maybe some ppc64 tag is missing in the build?

Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2012-10-19 18:54:46 UTC
In Fedora, ppc is a secondary arch. They follow behind the primary arch... 
so there could well be some delay before it's built. 

Check ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org for progress.

Comment 7 Paulo de Rezende Pinatti 2012-11-14 19:00:41 UTC
Package reached repositories and I was able to successfully test it on Fedora 17.
