Description Jaromír Cápík 2014-02-24 18:13:50 UTC

Almost a year ago you re-introduced a hack in the %configure macro, that updates the 'config.guess' and 'config.sub' files so that they support aarch64. Now we need to do a similar thing in case of ppc64le. As the hack is still in place, I believe the only thing needed is to update the bundled /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/config.* templates with new ones.

Please, let me know whether it's achievable.
Thanks in advance.


Comment 1 Jaromír Cápík 2014-02-24 19:23:42 UTC
It seems the ppc64le arch support is already in place as Karsten Hopp did an update few months ago because of the ppc64p7 subarch and the ppc64le support was already there.

I believe this issue can be closed.
