Gary is handling the Fedora versions of this package

Comment 2 Sergey Tikhonov 2005-05-14 20:23:50 UTC
It would be very very nice if all java packages that have ExclusiveArch: defined
had alpha arch added. It would make life of AlphaCore project easier. :) Thank you.

Comment 3 Gary Benson 2005-05-23 10:35:05 UTC
Sorry for the delay, I've been on vacation.

Is there a macro like %{ix86} that covers both alpha and alphaev6?

Comment 4 Sergey Tikhonov 2005-05-23 11:28:34 UTC
Unfortunatelly, there is none. I think just adding "alpha" would be enough. RPM
has some compatibility rules for arches and I think "alpha" would works for
alphaev6. Anyway right now we are not building ev6 specific packages. :)
What about adding "alpha" to all java spec files?
Thank you.

Comment 5 Gary Benson 2005-05-23 16:37:19 UTC
Ok, I've added "alpha" to everything that needs it in CVS.  In itself it's too
small a change to warrant rebuilds this close to the FC4 freeze, but I've had to
rebuild most of them anyway to fix another issue so this fix will be in almost
all of the packages for FC4.

Comment 6 Sergey Tikhonov 2005-05-23 18:11:16 UTC
Thank you very much.
Just to let you know - we were able to build almost all java packages on linux
alpha. There are some issues with building of sources, but that is another story.
