This is fiexed by setting arch from --target in rpm-4.4.6 and later for 6+ months now.


Comment 2 Dennis Gilmore 2007-03-26 19:44:55 UTC
This is a blocker for F7 without a fix we wont have a ppc64 release 

Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2007-04-03 18:01:17 UTC
Paul the rpm you gave me to test fixes this issue.  can we get packages built 
for FC-6 and devel before Friday please.

Comment 4 Zenon Panoussis 2007-04-04 14:10:24 UTC
I have the opposite problem with %{_lib} :

On a Mac G5 (PPC64),  
rpmbuild --rebuild --target ppc glibc-2.5.12.src.rpm 
+ mkdir -p /var/tmp/glibc-2.5-root/lib64/rtkaio
+ mv '/var/tmp/glibc-2.5-root/lib64/librtkaio-*.so' /var/tmp/glibc-2.5-root/lib64/rtkaio/
mv: cannot stat '/var/tmp/glibc-2.5-root/lib64/librtkaio-*.so': No such file or directory

This comes from line 990 in the specfile. "mv $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_lib}/blah...
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/lib/ is built as it should be.
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/lib64/ contains the newly created directory rtkaio and nothing else.

Building with --define "_lib lib" works around the problem. 
Using rpm-build-4.4.2-32 on FC6.

Is this rpm publicly available somewhere as a src.rpm?

The patch hinted in comment #3 is unavaliable through FC cvs or repository.

Comment 8 Panu Matilainen 2007-07-17 19:07:12 UTC
AFAICT this has been fixed in F7 quite some time ago.

Jeff, the patch in question is here:;style=raw
