Description Timotheus Pokorra 2019-03-08 19:49:28 UTC
We have bug 1588734 for Mono 4.8, which does not build on ppc64 and ppc64le anymore. We were not able to resolve this.
And with Mono 5 around the corner (bug 1436896), we hopefully will have Mono 5 in Rawhide soon, which should compile for ppc64 just fine.

The suggestion is now to drop ppc64 and ppc64le from the macro mono_arches, so that all the packages in F30 depending on Mono can be built without adjustments.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2019-03-08 20:06:02 UTC
Note that PPC64 was dropped from Fedora as an architecture with F30, not that it really matters here.

Note tha %mono_arches currently contains:
  %{ix86} x86_64 sparc sparcv9 ia64 %{arm} aarch64 alpha s390x ppc ppc64 ppc64le

How much of that is actually correct (or even tested)?

Comment 2 Timotheus Pokorra 2019-03-08 20:57:23 UTC
I know it works for x86_64 armv7hl i686 s390x aarch64 because the latest build worked on those architectures:

I cannot speak for the other architectures.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2019-03-12 11:35:45 UTC
sparc, alpha, ia64... rrrrrriiight :)

Comment 4 Carl George 2019-03-26 20:47:41 UTC
This is still broken in ppc64le rawhide and f30.  mono-4.8.0-17.fc30 is live in f30 and f31 buildroots, without ppc64le packages, but ppc64le is still listed in %mono_arches.

Comment 5 Timotheus Pokorra 2019-03-27 05:04:19 UTC
We are working on getting Mono 5 into F30, which builds fine on ppc64le. We have a deadline till Sunday night:

Only issue is now s390x: bug 1692646

Comment 6 Timotheus Pokorra 2019-04-03 04:21:58 UTC
Closing this issue because Mono builds fine on ppc64le in F30 and rawhide again.
