Detailed plans

  • To do...

Various notes

  • automake

Host test machine is a ppc64le VM based on RHEL-LE-7.1-20150219.1-Server-ppc64le-dvd1.iso

automake-1.13.4-3 is part of the RHEL-LE-7.1-20150219.1-Server-ppc64le-dvd1.iso but some packages needs automake-1.14 like:

libidn2-0.10-1, oath-toolkit-2.4.1-8

and some packages are dependent of the two above;

jwhois, kde-plasma-networkmanagement-extras, NetworkManager-openconnect, openconnect

  • mono

mono-2.10.8-8 does not build on ppc64le epel7 neither on ppc64le epel7

It seems Fedora's version of mono is horrendously outdated. 1089426
