Detailed plans

  • To be investigated:

Various notes

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

  • ruby

ruby-2.0.0 is part of RHEL-LE-7.1-20150219.1-Server-ppc64le-dvd1.iso

ruby-2.1.1 should be used to support ppc64le

  • gcc

gcc 4.8.3 is part of RHEL-LE-7.1-20150219.1-Server-ppc64le-dvd1.iso

gcc 5.1.1 is used in ppc64le f22

  • automake

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

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It seems Fedora's version of mono is horrendously outdated. 1089426

  • glusterfs

glusterfs seeems supported in ppc64 and ppc64le fedora 22 but not in redhat and epel7

  • varnish

varnish could have tests failed because of timeout on HTTP rx. To pass all tests a patch can be done in bin/varnishtest/vtc_main.c to increase vtc_maxdur value.
