Description Peter Robinson 2011-05-20 08:02:10 UTC
The latest version of nss doesn't build on ARM platforms. It fails a couple of tests (minor details below). nss-util and nss-softokn build without issues. 

The full chain build of the latest nspr/nss-util/nss-softokn/nss can be found here

Comment 1 Peter Robinson 2011-05-23 18:09:08 UTC
We fixed this in F-14/F15/rawhide by disabling tests for ARM.

Comment 2 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-05-23 19:04:51 UTC
The test that fail are ssl tests where client times attempinting a connection to the local test server on system with dual ipv6/ipv4 stack. This is related to Bug 539183 for which we had applied an upstream short-term fix for use in Linux and Mac OS X builds and testing, see Unfortunately, it's not working on arm. Until the problem is fixed we could just opt to disable only the ssl tests.

Disable the ssl tests suites on arm platform.

Suggested modifications to nss.spec file in the for of a patch to disable only the ssl tests.
