Description Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-23 16:21:21 UTC
pm-utils is currently not built for arm, but there's not really any reason
why it shouldn't.

Would you please consider adding the string "%{arm}" (which is an rpm
macro that expands to the set of supported arm sub-archs) to pm-utils's
ExclusiveArch: line?

Thanks for your time.

Comment 1 Till Maas 2007-08-30 15:35:10 UTC
Imho it should be "%{?arm}", so it gets expanded to nothing when it is nod
defined. At least this is what happens here locally with rpm --eval.

Comment 2 Lennert Buytenhek 2007-08-31 06:28:23 UTC
Thanks for your reply.

The rawhide version of rpm does define %{arm}.  That said, if you use the
same spec file for rawhide and pre-rawhide, then %{?arm} would make more
sense, yes.  Note that rpm, gcc, binutils and such packages do use %{arm}
in their spec files.

Comment 3 Till Maas 2007-08-31 08:52:44 UTC
I have added %{?arm} to ExclusiveArch in cvs. Can you rebuild the package for
arm to test, whether it really builds? I guess you do not need radeontool or
vditool for arm, or do you? They are both only built for %{ix86} x86_64.

Comment 4 Till Maas 2007-09-13 04:33:49 UTC
radeontool and vbetool are now a separate packages and do not use ExclusiveArch.
pm-utils is now rebuild.
