Packages with known build issues

These package have known issues during build in rawhide, but they are expected to be solved in the foreseeable future. They are now listed in the temporary "ignorelist" in koji-shadow.

An overstrike means package is built in Rawhide in primary koji and commited or also built in primary F-15.

  • syncevolution - fails on s390 because size_t != unsigned int there, reported as
  • (s390) stage - depends on
    • player - dependency on FireWire pkgs is removed in rawhide in dist-git, now waits on opencv FTBFS due gcc 4.6
  • meego-panel-zones <- mutter-mbl - not compatible with gtk3
  • shotwell - not compatible with vala 0.11, was built with vala 0.10 in primary koji
  • (s390) lush - FPU HW control code not compatible with non-x86 (patch exists) + overflow during relocation
  • (s390, ppc) clanbomber - depends on
    • (s390, ppc) ClanLib06 - tolua++ crashes with segfault on 32-bit in the lua interpreter (*pc is set to 0x11, dereferencing fails)
  • (s390, ppc) suricata - can't find pcre headers during configure run => -march=native was used in compiler flags
  • (s390) mozc - segfault during build, looks like the code is not big-endian safe (some suspicious pointers in traceback) - converter/ is one candidate for unsafe type conversions
  • (s390) protobuf - missing protobuf-java subpackage blocks a lot of other stuff
  • (s390, ppc) ykpers - a test failing on assertions (expecting char is signed, expecting little endian order)
  • (s390) root - not ported to s390(x) - an uncomplete patch exists
  • (s390) myproxy - stuck in running tests
  • (ppc) python - python-debug segfaults during build
  • (ppc) openbabel - build fails with lots of 'operand out of range' errors
  • (ppc) gtksourceview2 - reported as a missing linker flag, but there's more to it. blocking many other packages
  • (s390, ppc) redis - google-perftools doesn't exist on all arches - google-perftools-1.7-2.fc15 (in git only) should build for ix86, x86_64 and ppc
  • (all) java-gnome - must be built with same java-1.6.0-openjdk version as in primary koji
  • (s390) pure - tests are failing
  • (s390) openfst - wrong target ordering in make, the required target ( is not built before it's used
  • (s390) gridengine - architecture not supported
  • (s390) gmp-ecm
  • (s390) ibus-pinyin depends on
    • (s390) opencc - segfault of freshly built tool during build
  • (s390, ppc) openni needs to have ExclusiveArch: %{x86}
  • (s390, ppc) openni-primesense needs to have ExclusiveArch: %{x86}
  • (s390, ppc) FIXED UPSTREAM! waiting for tcpdump-4.2 tcpdump -v -v test fails due to incorrect check sum on big-endian machines
  • (s390) gcl - fails during build
  • (s390, ppc) perl-Bio-SamTools - failing test during 64-bit build
  • (s390, ppc, ...) - xulrunner - xulrunner >= 5.0 now requires the IPC for plugin isolation and this code is not ported to non-x86 arches (maybe it works on arm ...)
