Description Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-06 15:55:12 UTC
acpica-tools failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f32

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix acpica-tools at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
acpica-tools will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 33,
acpica-tools will be retired, if it still fails to build.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.

Comment 5 Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-16 04:28:41 UTC
Dear Maintainer,

your package has not been built successfully in 32. Action is required from you.

If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate [1]. If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages [2], your package
will be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

A week before the mass branching of Fedora 33 according to the schedule [3],
any packages not successfully rebuilt at least on Fedora 31 will be
retired regardless of the status of this bug.


Comment 6 Al Stone 2020-02-16 20:54:00 UTC
Working on a fix; a new version of the upstream source has also arrived.

Comment 7 Troy Dawson 2020-07-15 15:52:56 UTC
Newer version is building much better.
A scratch build shows that it builds on all arches but s390x.
s390x is only failling on the second batch of tests,

Here is the output of a scratch build.

My last test builds showed a significant number of failures in the first batch of
tests, as well.

Yeah, s390x is by definition problematic; ACPICA does not support big-endian at all.
The last few upstream revisions have caused a lot of bugs as a result; still working
on the patches to clean that up.
