Description Peter Robinson 2011-05-19 20:56:16 UTC
When compiling the python that shipped with F-14 (with a a slightly updated spec for valgrind exclusion) we get a test failure in the test_float

The full build logs are available here:

It looks like this bug here:

If this isn't fixable is it possible to get the test disabled, either for all build or with an exception for the arm platform.

As a side node the current release in fedora 14 mainline x86 has a test ioctl failure (only change on this build was the arm exclude).

Thanks for looking into this.

I see you fixed this in git with:;a=commitdiff;h=599d1aa47d600dd4f01f6518fb1c712602723cef

and similar commits to f14 and f15

Koji builds are here:




Does anything further need to happen before this bug can be closed?

Nope. We're all good. Fixed in rawhide/F-15/F-14
