Has anyone built the clearsilver-0.10.2-2.fc4.src.rpm from Extras for PPC or PPC64?


I guess there was good reason that FE didn't include a PPC build... (-:


Well, sure there's http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/4/ppc/clearsilver-0.10.2-2.fc4.ppc.rpm. But it seems as though I ought to be able to duplicate the feat. The destination is a RHEL4 PPC64 system, so I'm concerned about dependencies.

My apologies, I didn't read far enough to see you were trying to rebuild for RHEL4. (Wow, I didn't there even was a rhel4 build for ppc, cool!).

No problem. It is pretty cool: 32-node IBM OpenPower with dual-core P5s running RHAS4 (or Suse). I'd like to put Trac on it for our user group, but the ClearSilver issue is a showstopper. (Annoyingly, python-sqlite also has issues due to conflicts between PPC and PPC64 packages. There must be something in multilib packages to allow conflicting binaries in 32-bit and 64-bit versions to resolve their differences peacefully.)

It's hard to know whom to complain to. Is it a packaging issue (Dag and Extras exhibit the same symptoms, but neither is specifically designed for PPC64) or upstream?
