Additional information:

Comment 1 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2016-09-28 16:52:27 UTC
Ok, added ExcludeArch: aarch64 to sagemath with a link to this bug for now.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2016-09-28 17:02:53 UTC
if sagemath is depending on maxima, imo, better to synchronize with what maxima uses (minus anything else sagemath doesn't support)

ExclusiveArch: %{arm} %{ix86} x86_64 aarch64 ppc sparcv9

Comment 3 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2016-09-28 18:15:20 UTC
Thanks for the tip, done.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2016-09-28 19:02:57 UTC
OK, I totally misinterpretted the problem here, my apologies.

So, the referenced root.log fails with:
DEBUG  No matching package to install: 'linbox-devel'
DEBUG  No matching package to install: 'maxima-runtime-ecl'

Can't explain maxima-runtime-ecl missing, but I'll try a rebuild, and see what happens.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2016-09-28 22:05:08 UTC


so both ecl and maxima are available on fc26/aarch64 now.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2017-03-30 12:32:20 UTC
fyi, sbcl backend is enabled on aarch64 too,
