Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:53:45 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  libbs2b appears to use an earlier version of 
autoconf, preventing its being built.  This can be fixed in of three ways (In order of preference):

1. Work with upstream to migrate the package to autoconf 2.69.

2. Rerun autoconf or autoreconf in %prep or %build prior to running 

3. Apply the patch at
which updates config.guess and config.sub to recognize aarch64.

Comment 1 Karel Volný 2013-08-26 14:25:54 UTC
I've just updated the package according to 2. (sorry for the delay ...) and asked the upstream to update the buildsystem.

Only after that, I've found that there already exists a build[1] which has passed on arm. Now I'm confused ... how is that possible that the build has passed without the update? Should I revert the changes?


Comment 2 Karel Volný 2014-01-31 16:33:04 UTC
ok, bug #922257 #c1 explains ... however, as stated above, the change has already been done in 3.1.0-8, closing

Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2014-06-23 15:39:45 UTC
this package is currently ftbfs on aarch64
