Description Petr Pisar 2015-09-15 10:35:57 UTC
root-reflex-5.34.30-1.fc23.aarch64.rpm cannot be installed on aarch64 because gccxml run-time dependency cannot be built there:

DEBUG   --> root-reflex-5.34.30-1.fc23.aarch64
DEBUG  Error: Package: root-reflex-5.34.30-1.fc23.aarch64 (build)
DEBUG             Requires: gccxml
DEBUG   You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

gccxml is broken with GCC >= 5.1 and it will not be fixed probably (bug #1239520). gccxml upstream recommends to migrate to <>.

F23 enable Cintex; resolve Reflex dependency issue

Comment 2 David Abdurachmanov 2015-09-16 14:45:33 UTC
ROOT5 will never be updated to anything else than GCCXML. GCCXML does not work on AArch64 and overall ROOT5 is not in active development. It should not be active support after September 2015.

You still can use C++ object serialisation, but dictionaries must be pre-generated on x86_64, then compiled on aarch64.

The attached patch resolved Reflex dependency issue and enables Cintex. Compiled and all 95 RPMs install fine. C++ interpreter works fine on quick test.
