Add ARM support

Description of problem:
since numpy doesn't know about ARM, it cannot deduce its endianness. Thus, build fails.
Check out the build logs here

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

Additional info:
Adding support for ARM should be fairly straightforward. Attaching a patch that adds the support. Find a successful build here:

Jitesh, the patch is much appreciated, and we can certainly take it into the build. If you haven't already, can you please submit this upstream to the rrdtool-developers mailing list?

Comment 2 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-11-17 13:51:29 UTC
Jarod, was this comment on the wrong bug, perhaps?

Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2009-11-17 14:05:26 UTC
Hah! Wow. No, somehow, my brain translated numpy into rrdtool. So comment #1 holds, if you replace "rrdtool-developers mailing list" with "wherever the numpy devs prefer to accept patches". (I need more coffee...)

Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-11-17 14:15:46 UTC
I'm right there with you. :)  I'll start work on getting this into rawhide. . .

Comment 6 Jitesh Shah 2009-11-17 19:44:35 UTC
Jarod, okay I'll file the bug here : Although the last mail was in April 2009, which is not very heartening :-)

Also, I saw the koji build. It got built as "numpy-1.3.0-6.fc13.fa1". Guess I left an extra "fa1" in the Release. It should have been "numpy-1.3.0-7.fc13"

Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-11-17 19:56:05 UTC
The fa1 won't cause any problems.
