Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 15:32:59 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  myproxy 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 Mattias Ellert 2013-03-24 07:05:11 UTC
I have patched grid-packaging-tools to use --force-missing when automake is called.

In order to proceed further I need the following information:

1) What does the config.guess script return on this architecture?

2) What name is used for this architecture in %ifarch macros in spec files?

3) What does "uname -m" report on this architecture?

4) Does this architecture install libraries in /usr/lib or /usr/lib64?

Comment 2 Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-25 17:24:19 UTC
libraries are installed into /usr/lib64 uname -m is aarch64 its also the rpm arch as to config.guess i cant get you that right now, we dont have any real hardware as it doesnt yet exist and are just getting things in place for the bringup. we are about to start building everything as rpms for the first time.

Comment 3 Mattias Ellert 2013-05-17 12:33:02 UTC
Hi Dennis, one more question.

Does gcc and the rest of the tool chain on aarch64 support -m32/-m64 like on many other 64 bit architectures, or is it 64 bit only and using -m64 will break because it is an unsupported option?

Comment 4 Mattias Ellert 2013-07-29 04:54:54 UTC
This should be fixable now by simply adding aarch64 to the list of 64 bit archs in the specfile:

--- a/myproxy.spec
+++ b/myproxy.spec
