Description Orion Poplawski 2008-05-06 19:55:00 UTC

Can remove some of the failures by changing CFLAGS to "-m64", but not all:

Testing soft normalized long double -> long conversions               *FAILED*
Testing soft normalized long double -> unsigned long conversions      *FAILED*
Testing soft long -> long double conversions                          *FAILED*
Testing soft unsigned long -> long double conversions                 *FAILED*

-fno-strict-aliasing doesn't help.

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-09 15:51:06 UTC
Why don't you just %ifnarch ppc64 the call to make check?

Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2008-05-09 16:12:40 UTC
Well, I rather not ship a broken library.  I'm still in communication with
upstream.  Looks like long double support may be considered experimental at this
point, so I may disable the check on ppc64 for now.

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2008-11-16 02:55:53 UTC
Shipping hdf5 on pp64 with tests disabled.  Keep testing new releases to see if this gets fixed.
