Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 15:39:58 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  oprofile 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 William Cohen 2013-03-25 20:49:07 UTC
As a part of the build rpmbuild oprofile in the %prep oprofile.spec does:

./ should be running autoconf and it appears to use autoconf-2.69 on fedora 18.

Did oprofile actually fail to build on aarch64? or was this just flagged as a problem because the configure wasn't built with 2.69 and there wasn't a autoconf in the oprofile.spec?

Comment 2 William Cohen 2014-03-14 20:40:59 UTC
The current rawhide package, oprofile-0.9.9-3.54.gb7e9a57.fc21 builds on aarch64 machines.  This version of oprofile also has support for the APM X-Gene aarch64 processor.

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2014-06-16 12:51:56 UTC
Now built in rawhide aarch64 koji instance
