Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 15:24:12 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  lingot appears to use an earlier version of 
autoconf, preventing its being built.  This can be fixed in of three ways (In order of preference):

1. Work with upstream to migrate the package to autoconf 2.69.

2. Rerun autoconf or autoreconf in %prep or %build prior to running 

3. Apply the patch at
which updates config.guess and config.sub to recognize aarch64.

Cannot be built due to this bug:

Pushed to SCM. Will push a build as soon as the bug is fixed.


Comment 2 Karel Volný 2014-01-31 16:09:39 UTC
ping, if I recall correctly, ARM support has been somehow hacked at buildsys level, is this bug still relevant?

the next upstream version is going to use 2.69 - at least


# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.69.

... but I can't guess when it will be released

would that be okay to switch this to closed/upstream?

ah, I could answer my own question by reading bug #922257 #c1

so, this is no longer an issue
