Comment 1 Tom Hughes 2016-11-15 12:19:56 UTC
Yes I know, what I don't have is any way to investigate.

Comment 2 Dan Horák 2016-11-15 12:23:11 UTC
for the record - Debian has powerpc and s390x builds for mapnik 3.0, but no patches were used, so unlike they run the test-suite.

> Yes I know, what I don't have is any way to investigate.

you mean access to hw or mapnik know-how?

Comment 4 Tom Hughes 2016-11-15 12:25:27 UTC
I have some mapnik know how, and I know upstream reasonably well anyway, but don't have access to a machine, or is there something suitable in the packager farm now?

Comment 5 Tom Hughes 2016-11-15 12:25:55 UTC
Nothing listed at that I can see.

Comment 6 Tom Hughes 2016-11-15 19:00:04 UTC
Converting this to an ExcludeArch bug as upstream has dropped big endian support ( so I have just pushed an update to exclude these two architectures.

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2017-02-28 10:37:17 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:20:18 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
