Description Michal Toman 2015-07-14 08:31:31 UTC
Created attachment 1051694 [details]

Description of problem:
We are trying to bring Fedora to MIPS platform and this requires to add little endian MIPS support to hawkey.

Actual results:
Current hawkey only supports big endian MIPS

Expected results:
Both little and big endian work correctly

Additional info:
Hawkey uses uname to determine the CPU architecture. For MIPS, the result is the same for little and big endian (it is always "mips" or "mips64" which is considered big endian). We need to distinguish between mips/mipsel and mips64/mips64el in order to install correct packages.

Attaching a dist-git patch

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Would you be able to support MIPS in hawkey upstream [1]? If so, do the pull request, please.


Comment 3 Michal Toman 2015-08-04 07:44:57 UTC
I can do the upstream support, here's the pull request

Comment 4 Honza Silhan 2015-08-07 17:33:05 UTC
The hawkey-0.6.0 with MIPS support will be built for F22, F23 and rawhide.
