Comment 1 Michel Normand 2014-07-22 14:53:50 UTC
This is a blocker at least for following packages:


Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2014-07-29 13:03:27 UTC
Dan took care of the bootstrap and I've built erlang-erlydtl and erlang-neotoma. erlang-getopt fails on ppc64le:

Comment 3 Menanteau Guy 2014-08-20 11:32:24 UTC
Tests failures of erlang-getopt are still due to bootstrap.

I succeed to build erlang-getopt following this procedure:
  1. build erlang-rebar in bootstrap mode
  2. install erlang-rebar (bootstrap)
     note that erlang-rebar have a require on erlang-getopt
     so I modified erlang-rebar.spec has following:

     # eunit_test:function_wrapper/2.  This function was removed in R16, and rebar
     # contains a workaround for that. So no need to worry about that.
     Requires:       erlang-eunit%{?_isa}
   + %if 0%{?need_bootstrap} < 1
     Requires:       erlang-getopt%{?_isa}
   + %endif
     Requires:       erlang-kernel%{?_isa}
     Requires:       erlang-lfe%{?_isa}
     Requires:       erlang-mustache%{?_isa}

  3. build erlang-getopt with tests disbaled (--nocheck on build)
     note if it is not easy to automatically run a build with tests disabled,
     then a bootstrap mechanism needs to be defined in erlang-getopt.spec to
     diasble %check build process section when bootstrap on. 
  4. install erlang-getopt

  5. build erlang-rebar in normal mode (no bootstrap)

  6. uninstall erlang-rebar (bootstrap)

  7. install erlang-rebar normal (no bootstrap)

  8. build erlang-getopt with tests enabled
