Re: Deltarpm xz problem with PPC generated rpms?



The problem is that the encoder uses different hash functions depending
on the endianess.  The hash functions are defined in
liblzma/lz/lz_encoder_hash.h, and are based on the values in
lzma_crc32_table[0].  This table is different between big end little
endian.

Not having looked at the algorithm... *why*? Is it really that big
of a difference?

rz/sz is a very old application.  In the days of 6MHz CPUs it mattered.
After that, "backwards compatibility" took precedence over portability.
