Description Gustavo Luiz Duarte 2014-05-05 14:39:39 UTC
The new little-endian 64-bit PowerPC platform (powerpc64le-linux) is not currently supported by Xulrunner.

I tried the same patch being used for Firefox and it works fine for Xulrunner:

Could we please add this patch to Xulrunner on Rawhide? You can apply the patch only on ppc64le to avoid breaking other arches.

Please also consider the following change to the spec file:
