Description Marcin Juszkiewicz 2016-02-22 15:37:39 UTC
Description of problem:

qt5-qtwebengine source is 0.2% of whole source. Rest is Chromium source code. 65.2% of which is set of 3rdparty code which involves:

- icu
- mesa
- skia
- ffmpeg (cleaned by qt5-qtwebengine maintainer)
- sqlite
- webrtc
- yasm

And many other software directories which are (or can) be part of Fedora as separate packages.

The problem is that those bundled components are often old and do not contain changes needed for qt5-qtwebengine to build on secondary architectures.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run on aarch64 (arm-koji scratch is enough)

Actual results:

In file included from /builddir/build/BUILD/qtwebengine-opensource-src-5.6.0-beta/src/3rdparty/chromium/third_party/ffmpeg/libavutil/intreadwrite.h:25:0,

 #   include "aarch64/bswap.h"
compilation terminated.

Expected results:

package builds

Additional info:

IMHO missing components (like ffmpeg) should be packaged for Fedora and used as build dependencies.

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2016-02-22 23:51:02 UTC
"Package is 99.8% bundled Chromium code which contains another set of 3rd party code" is not a bug according to the current packaging guidelines. And I tried hard to unbundle things. Various components cannot be unbundled for various reasons. The main reason FFmpeg cannot be unbundled is that a fully featured FFmpeg cannot be provided in Fedora. The bundled version is cleaned by a script to only contain known unencumbered parts, which is also where the build failure is coming from. (We would have the same build failure if it were packaged standalone.)

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2016-02-23 00:49:21 UTC
Should be fixed in Rawhide (fixed package now building on the primary architectures, but there will be no difference on those), thanks for the 2-line patch to you linked to on IRC.

Comment 3 Marcin Juszkiewicz 2016-02-23 06:31:50 UTC
"should be" is wish thinking. I am in a middle of getting it into buildable state.

Adding those two files to ffmpeg was beginning.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2016-02-23 13:48:46 UTC
OK. I hope at least the tarball is good now.

Comment 5 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 15:28:43 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
