Description Jon Masters 2011-09-19 17:01:13 UTC
Description of problem:

We need to override some RPM defaults for Fedora 15 on ARM systems. This includes defaulting to harfp (armv7hl) on armv7hl/hnl, and setting the optflags to target armv7-a, and disable Thumb. We don't use Thumb on Fedora at this moment in time because it causes some builds to fail, and for other reasons.

Specific changes:

optflags: armv7l %{__global_cflags} -march=armv7-a -mfloat-abi=soft
optflags: armv7hl %{__global_cflags} -march=armv7-a -mfpu=vfpv3-d16  -mfloat-abi=hard
optflags: armv7hnl %{__global_cflags} -march=armv7-a -mfpu=neon  -mfloat-abi=hard

buildarchtranslate: armv7l: armv7hl
buildarchtranslate: armv7hl: armv7hl
buildarchtranslate: armv7hnl: armv7hl

Is this change needed also for f16 and f17?

Nevermind, Henrik pointed out that the change is actually already merged.
Not so obvious though looking at the spec file or pkg git...
