Description David Woodhouse 2007-05-04 05:55:50 UTC
We don't have a ppc64 port of clisp yet. One for a rainy day, perhaps....

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2007-05-04 05:58:06 UTC
Dunno why this got assigned to me, although I suppose it isn't _entirely_
unreasonable. But reassigning to package owner for now anyway.

Comment 2 Gérard Milmeister 2007-05-04 21:44:08 UTC
Is ppc64 a supported target of Fedora?

Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2007-05-04 21:59:29 UTC
Yes. Now that we've imported Extras into Core, we're building all ex-Extras
packages for ppc64 too.

Comment 4 Gérard Milmeister 2007-05-04 23:32:42 UTC
Ok, so this is something that should go to

BTW, this affects only the native compiler? One could build on ppc64 without the
native compiler.

Comment 5 Gérard Milmeister 2007-05-04 23:35:04 UTC
Oops, the last comment should have gone the a similar ocaml bug report.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:28:52 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:38:57 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.

The process we're following is outlined here:

Comment 8 David Woodhouse 2008-05-07 08:48:16 UTC
Gr. Probably best not to auto-close bugs on the FE-ExcludeArch-$ARCH trackers.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 02:51:01 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 22:34:56 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

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 prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 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 please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

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.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 16:57:33 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
