From Fedora Project Wiki

We are currently engaged in bootstrap of support for armv7hl ("hardfp") ARM systems in Fedora. The purpose of this page is to track the individual status of packages (and their dependencies) that have been built for Fedora.

See for the list of pending packages that have not succeeded building

See for a report on the differences to mainline

Known F15 issues


hno: Hmm.. have quite many packages FTBFS with "fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file or directory". 
kwizart: hno, they need to be converted to fully support v4l2
kwizart: but the workaround is to make them built with /usr/include/libv4l1-videodev.h from libv4l-devel and make them link with -lv4l1

Updates packages to build directly into ARM GA

If a F15 update is needed to solve an ARM-related problem that exists with the GA package, simply push that update into stage4 and note this (and the reasoning) under "Completed" below. When we come to do the koji build, the stage4 SRPMs will be used as a source, so there is no need to seperately record/list the packages that had to pulled in from updates.

Needed for koji (jcm)

Depends on itself, probably in rpm triggers. Trying with a dummy bootstrap package just providing the needed provides.


worked fine. Done.


Done. uuid-1.6.2-4.fc15 in F15 GA is broken - trivial spec error. Use uuid-1.6.2-5.fc15 instead.


calls dos2unix with bad arguments. Seems to have been failing for some time but appears dos2unix did not exit with an error and only an error message before.

seems fixed in F16, but also a newer version.

Mainline FTBFS with patches available but seems the maintainers are not responding.


These packages have completed a full build with some manual actions


GA version: 3 tests fail on ARM (#744624).

Fixed in latest version from koji: python3-3.2-3.fc15


Fails to build on Linux 3.x host due to #744740. built for armv5tel on Linux 2.6 host with no problems.


GA version libmpc-0.8.3-0.3.svn855.fc15 fails to build on armv5tel, because it hits a glibc bug where certain headers are not available on ARM and builds with -Werror.

Pulled in version libmpc-0.8.3-0.4.svn855.fc15 from koji which avoids using -Werror.


GA version fails tests on ARM. nss-3.12.10-6.fc15 pulled in from F15 updates to avoid this.

GA version also fails to build on Linux 3.0 host. Updates version may or may not face the same issue - armv5tel version built on Linux 2.6 host.


nspr-4.8.7-2.fc15 passes bad arguments to gcc and fails to compile. Fixed in nspr-4.8.8-4.fc15, pulled in from F15 updates.


uClibc-0.9.32-2.fc15 pulled in from F15 updates (needed for busybox, GA version doesn't work right)


atlas-3.8.4-1.fc15 pulled in from F15 updates (first version with ARM support).


libtool-2.4-6.fc15 was pulled in from F15 updates for armv5tel as this is the version that works alongside gcc-4.6.1.


binutils- was pulled in from F15 updates to fix [1] (ghc and gcc build segfaults)


Had trouble building coreutils-8.10-2.fc15 for armv5tel on it failed on tests/cp/fiemap-perf on "Nothing can read (much less write) that many bytes in so little time." More recent versions of coreutils fix this by skipping that test if the host filesystem is ext3 (which is the case on koji2, running Linux 3.1-rc7).

So, trying to avoid having to patch and bump coreutils in F15, I then tried to build this on an OLPC XO, which uses ext4 and runs Linux 3.0.0. This time, fiemap-perf passed but 5 gnulib readlink tests failed because the kernel returns EINVAL in a specific case where it never used to. Again, this test is fixed in more recent versions of coreutils, but in order to try and avoid patching the build, I patched in this kernel fix on my XO (still not upstream as of time of writing). The build then succeeded.

So the options for building this are:

  • Use a suitably old kernel (2.6.38 or older) and ext4 for the build, or
  • Patch the build system kernel and run the build on ext4, or
  • Add this coreutils fix and this gnulib fix to F15 coreutils and build that instead, which solves/avoids both the ext3 and readlink problems.


findutils includes gnulib so the readlink test failures noted in the coreutils section above apply exactly. findutils-4.5.9-3.fc15 built for armv5tel on OLPC XO with a patched kernel.

mysql-5.5.14-2.fc15.0.arm1 was built with 2 patches from stage3:

mysql-home.patch: define DEFAULT_HOME_ENV mysql-valist_fix.patch: Use a dummy va_list for client_plugin.c

Additionally, the perfschema.func_mutex and perfschema.func_file_io test cases were removed as they failed during build/test time. These should be investigated and a proper fix put in place.

could not find how the test cases were disabled in the spec file. 5.5.15 fails on the same two tests. Only the valist patch is needed. The DEFAULT_HOME_ENV patch is not needed. Hno 14:48, 10 October 2011 (UTC)


Have a circular dependency on it's backend providers. Main phonon package have been built but can not be installed as there is no backend providers, and blocks the backend providers from being built.

As the main package is already in stage4 the normal boostrap procedure of temporarily removing dependencies do not work well.

Trying alternative dependency override by manually installing phonon using rpm

rm rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/*.log
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --init --no-cleanup-after --result rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/ --installdeps rpms/phonon-4.5.0-2.fc15/phonon-4.5.0-2.fc15.src.rpm 
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/ --copyin rpms/phonon-4.5.0-2.fc15/phonon-4.5.0-2.fc15.armv7hl.rpm builddir/
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/ --chroot "rpm -i builddir/phonon-4.5.0-2.fc15.armv7hl.rpm --nodeps" 
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --no-clean --no-cleanup-after --result rpms/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15/ SRPMS/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.5.1-1.fc15.src.rpm

Resulting phonon-backend-gstreamer however depends on PackageKit-gstreamer-plugin which is not yet built..??

Another possible approach would have been to make a temporary phonon-backend-gstreamer-0.0.bootstrap package that only provides "phonon(backend}". This is probably recommended way of solving this kind of user experience runtime dependencies causing circular build dependencies.


Was build in stage3 somehow.

Depends on crash-devel, which fails on ExclusiveArch check.

There is an update koji build which removes the dependency on crash. Now scheduled for build. First attempts crashed for unknown reasons, but after rescheduling it again it seems to be building.

Worked fine this time.


Stray /usr/lib/*.la files packaged in the binary rpm with "bad" content. These files are both developer files and did contain further references to other unpackaged .la files in the stage3 build. Rebuilt in stage4 which cleaned up the contents of the .la files a bit, but strangely kdelibs3 still fails with the same error?

Turns out the .la files is supposed to be there for kde3. And the stage4 build contains the correct files.

The failure with same error even after arts was rebuilt was caused by yum picking the wrong repository. Using the fixed yum version and it works much better.


kdelibs3 in F15 is FTBFS.

There is an updated kdelibs3-3.5.10-28.fc15 in which did succeed building in koji. This was never pushed as an update however and have already been cleaned by the koji garbage collector

Even the updated version fails to build on ARM but now with the following error

/bin/sh ../../libtool --silent --tag=CXX   --mode=link g++  -DNDEBUG -DNO_DEBUG -O2 -O2 -g -march=armv7-a -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfpv3-d16 -mthumb -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -fno-common  -DQT_CLEAN_NAMESPACE -DQT_NO_ASCII_CAST -DQT_NO_STL -DQT_NO_COMPAT -DQT_NO_TRANSLATION  -L/usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib  -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,--enable-new-dtags  -no-undefined -version-info 3:0:2  -o -rpath /usr/lib libartskde_la.all_cc.lo libartskde_la.all_cpp.lo  ../../kio/ -lqtmcop -lsoundserver_idl
grep: /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
make[3]: Leaving directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/kdelibs-3.5.10/arts/kde'

This seems to be caused by stray .la files which have been packaged in the arts binary rpm package (not even -devel). These stray .la files is seen even on the primary arches but contents seem to differ and build there succeeds.

arts have been rebuilt in stage4 and looks better. kdelibs3 build now suceeding


FTBFS in F15. No fixed package available.

Patched in stage3

Reworked the patch a little and added to FTBFS bug #660819

Some further investigation and it's actually xmlto that is broken causing FTBFS here and in a number of other packages. xmlto Bug #681909

Compiles fine with updated/fixed xmlto.


sqlite-3.7.5-3 fails in several selftests

it is built in stage3 somehow but there is no SRPM or spec file available on arm-temp so can't tell how.

there is a newer -5 build in koji by pbrobinson, disabling self tests on arm, but never pushed as an update and have been garbage collected. Regenerated from git.

Should investigate with upstream why those selftests fail. Also check a more current version.

This is actually QT failing. Need to solve QT first. include/QtCore/qatomic_arm.h

QT have been rebuilt in stage4. Now fails on something soprano related.

Others having the same problem reports it fixed after rebuilding raptor and soprano. Trying. Noticeable is that both raptor and soprano uses Qt4 which was just rebuilt with both different compiler flags & version.

soprano & raptor rebuilt. New kdelibs build running.


Fails on ExclusiveArch check.

There is an updated version which adds arm to the list of supported architectures (koji build), but not built in stage3 and never pushed as an official F15 update. The build have expired in koji and have been garbage collected.'

Bug 734607 filed and fixed in crash-5.1.7-2 in (f17/rawhide). Update to F15 on it's way.

Update available and queued for build.

More issues of the same kind detected. Bug 734607 updated with new arm patch.

crash-5.1.7-2.0.arm1 queued for build. Should build fine this time (verified in an unclean mock run)


FTBFS in F15.

Should be fixed in libopensync-0.22-9.fc15 but that build was never pushed as an update and have been garbage collected.

Recreated from git.

Failed on missing include, which is bad as then there is a circular dependency where xdnssd-avahi gets built using parts of older self.

Searching for the same error locates an ancient Debian bug report from 2001 with the same symptoms. Debian Bug #94097. Unfortunately no hints at all to how it was fixed or what was causing it.

armv5tel also fails with the same error. armv5tel cln-1.3.1-1.fc13 failed build

Builds fine in x86_64 F15 with updates however.

Running an mock build for testing. Should reach the failing point in some hours.

An interesting "hint" found in Debian:

+	./configure --prefix=/usr `dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE`
+	# * ARM: CLN's assembler support is not working properly (it was only
+	#   'theoretically' ported by copying from code that had once worked in
+	#   CLISP under BSD). Same for armel.
+	# * HPPA: Assembler support is not working properly.  Somebody needs to
+	#   investigate but currently I don't have the inspiration for fixing
+	#   things on exotic architectures.
+	# * SPARC: With some versions of GCC, there are apparently problems in
+	#   passing return values in %g1.
+	case `dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_ARCH` in \
+	  arm|armel|hppa|sparc) \
+	  *) \

which is the fix for the debian bug report mentioned above. Why haven't the upstream been contacted to by default disable asm on these? This have been in Debian since 2001 (cln-1.0 something).

Oh well.. it's reported all right.. INSTALL says

CLN is known to work with:

  - Linux/x86, gcc-3.x, gcc-4.[0-5].x
  - Linux/x86_64, gcc-3.[3-4], gcc-4.[0-6].x, clang-2.8
  - Linux/ia64, gcc-3.[2-4], gcc-4.[0-4].x

(*) On these platforms, problems with the assembler routines have been
reported. It may be best to add "-DNO_ASM" to CPPFLAGS before

which almost matches Debian. The list above do not indicate known problems on linux/sparc, only solaris (sparc).


Depends on itself.

Nicely commented in the spec how to bootstrap.

bootstrap version queued & built.

full version queued, but probably depends on other stuff as well not built yet.

seems to have built fine.


KDE Core Applications

Depends on kdebase-workspace which depends on google-gadgets. google-gadgets is both mainline FTBFS and deprecated from F16+. There should be some hints by looking at how it's built on F16. May even be fixed by the updated versions in F15.

Alternatively convince google-gadgets to build again.

Discussed the topic with package owners. google-gadgets is dead, let it rest in piece. Rex Dieter have excluded google-gadgets on the arm platform in koji F15 build kdebase-workspace-4.6.5-6.fc15.

This requires all of KDE to be updated to 4.6.5. Downloaded to SRPMS/build/kde-4.6.5/ to be ready to queue them when kdebase is done.

Locally queued kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase-workspace, kdebase, will queue the others when these are done.

Failed on kdebase-workspace again, this time due to missing libcln-devel.

kdebase-workspace cooking again after builddeps resolved.

Wed Sep 21 14:09:32 GMT 2011 kdebase-workspace-4.6.5-6.fc15 STARTING

Still problems. Fixed in git but no new koji build.

mainline FTBFS.

Stage4 FTBFS (ARM specific):

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.    -fPIC -O2 -g -march=armv7-a -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfpv3-d16 -mthumb -DNDEBUG -c atomic_ops_stack.c
/tmp/ccqMX8vM.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccqMX8vM.s:70: Error: thumb conditional instruction should be in IT block -- `strexeq r4,r1,[r3]'

Rebuilt fine after thumb mode was disabled in redhat-rpm-macros.

Why is it mainline FTBFS then?


in stage 3 only

Requires a rebuilt ocaml (ocaml in stage3 is missing /usr/bin/ocamlrun). [dj]

Rebuilt fine after ocaml was fixed. No arm specific changes.


in stage 3 only

ocaml has two problems: First, the spec file has armv4 instead of %{arm}. Second, the configury does not enable the "natdynlink" feature for arm, so the list of installed files doesn't match the spec file's list. I have not determined if natdynlink works for arm, so I don't know whether the configury or the spec file need changing. [dj]

depends on itself but hopefully the copy in stage3 will do fine.

Running a build with %{arm}. Hno 07:34, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Processing files: ocaml-3.12.0-5.fc15.0.arm1.armv7hl
error: File not found by glob: /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/ocaml-3.12.0-5.fc15.0.arm1.arm/usr/lib/ocaml/*.cmxs

is this from the "natdynlink" mismatch mentioned above?

Yes, the files have different names if they're not the "natdynlink" style. [dj]

To bootstrap ocaml: In a suitable build environment (i.e. not mock), rpmbuild -bc ocaml.spec. This will eventually fail, but you'll have a boot/ocamlrun binary. If you don't already have a partial ocaml RPM, you can "make install" this build; if you do have a partial ocaml RPM, you still need to copy the just-built boot/ocamlrun to /usr/bin/ocamlrun. Then rpmbuild again.


ghc needs ghc to build, but we do not have ghc.. documents the bootstrapping procedure, but in ghc-7.0.2 bootstraping procedure seems completely broken.

Debian do have ghc-7.0.4 arm hardfloat. will try using that as initial compiler.

also needs libgmp10 från

after manual installation and library location fixup, finish ghc installation by running:

ghc-pkg recache --global

and replace /usr/bin/ghc with a small wrapper to work around implicit DSO issues relating to pthread

exec /usr//lib/ghc/bin/ghc "$@" -lpthread

Fix ExclusiveArch in ghc.spec and unpack sources by rpmbuild -bp ghc.spec --nodeps

Install as many of the dependencies as possible.

Build it:


seems get started. May even work as rpm. Aborting to retry using rpm.

testbuild of hscolour

Fix ExclusiveArch in hscolour.spec and attempt rebuilding it with --nodeps.

failed. Not sure why.

./Setup configure
./Setup build
sudo ./Setup install

works however. Closer inspection of the rpmbuild output shows that it's probably profiling related. The debian install do not have profiling libs. Digging a little in /etc/rpm/ghc.macros shows there is a without_prof define.

rpmbuild -ba hscolour.spec  --nodeps -D"without_prof 1" -D"without_haddock 1" -D"without_hscolour 1"
sudo rpm -i ../RPMS/armv7hl/hscolour-1.17-8.fc15.0.arm1.armv7hl.rpm
rpmbuild -ba hscolour.spec  --nodeps -D"without_prof 1" -D"without_haddock 1"

looks good. So it's possible to bootstrap this package fully using rpm.

native ghc

rpmbuild -ba ghc.spec  --nodeps

failed.. needing some overrides. Reverting to begin with a manual build again. Done.

ghc-7.0.2 for Fedora now available as .tar.gz. Will clean out the build root and continue bootstraping with only this installed, pruning out the remains of the foreign Debian version.

rpmbuild of ghc & hscolour

Starting from a clean buildroot.

buildroot setup:

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --init

rpm -q --requires -p ghc-7.0.2-16.3.fc15.0.arm1.src.rpm
ghc-rpm-macros >= 0.11.12
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --install gmp-devel libffi-devel ncurses-devel libxslt  docbook-style-xsl ghc-rpm-macros
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result /home/henrik/ghc --copyin ghc-7.0.2-norpm.tar.gz ghc-7.0.2-16.3.fc15.0.arm1.src.rpm hscolour-1.17-8.fc15.0.arm1.src.rpm /builddir/

then building hscolour

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --chroot "tar zxf builddir/ghc-7.0.2-norpm.tar.gz"
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --unpriv 'rpmbuild --rebuild builddir/hscolour-1.17-8.fc15.0.arm1.src.rpm --nodeps -D"without_prof 1" -D"without_hscolour 1"'
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --copyout /builddir/build/RPMS/* .
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --chroot "rpm -i /builddir/build/RPMS/*hscolour* --nodeps"

and finally a full native build of ghc

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --unpriv --chroot 'rpmbuild --rebuild builddir/ghc-7.0.2-16.3.fc15.0.arm1.src.rpm --nodeps'

First had problems with GCC crashing on internal error, but the reason to that was that I had forgot to activate the right swap partition after a reboot between manual build and rpmbuild steps.

Then a little overoptimisic on the mainline patchwork. It seems the patch to use system provided libffi only works on platforms where ghci is supported. A bit unfortunate as it means we will be using a bundled copy instead of the system provided one. This should be looked into.

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --init
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --install gmp-devel libffi-devel ncurses-devel libxslt  docbook-style-xsl ghc-rpm-macros
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --copyin ghc-7.0.2-norpm.tar.gz *.rpm /builddir/
mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --chroot "tar zxf builddir/ghc-7.0.2-norpm.tar.gz"

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --unpriv --chroot 'rpmbuild --rebuild builddir/ghc-7.0.2-16.3.fc15.0.arm3.src.rpm --nodeps'

failed after 13 hours due to a stupid ghc.spec error of mine %{without where i meant %{with

mock -r fedora-15-armhfp --result $PWD --unpriv --chroot 'rpmbuild --rebuild builddir/ghc-7.0.2-16.3.fc15.0.arm4.src.rpm --nodeps'


result uploaded to stage3, and srpms sent to the build farm for clean mock builds.

ExlusiveArch on ghc related packages also updated to include armv7hl to try to shake out which packags build on armv7hl and which needs more attention.

mainline merge

Work is progressing together with mainline package owner juhp to integrate the arm changes mainline, starting with ghc and then the other packages. Hno 12:48, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

main ghc package changes have been merged mainline. Still remains to address all the other packages where armv7hl have been added as supported arch. Hno 02:03, 6 October 2011 (UTC)


had issues with unsigned char. See Bug #736873. Fixed in fixed in speedcrunch-0.11-0.3.alpha.fc15


patched to build with gcc 4.6. Tracked in Bug #734261.


pl-5.10.2-5.fc15.0.arm1 patched to use correct java paths on arm.

pl-5.10.5-4.fc17 builds without patches, but that's rawhide and not f15.


An updated qt-4.7.3-6.fc15 was built somehow in stage3, but the -doc package was not included.

The same version fails to build from source in stage4.

The original qt-4.7.2-8.fc15 release version fails with a problem related to mysql or openssl:

DEBUG  ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
DEBUG  openssl-devel(armv7hnl-32) is needed by mysql-devel-5.5.10-2.fc15.armv7hl
DEBUG  (1, [u'Please report this error in'])

this may be related to the yum repository priority problem, or the mysql-devel package in stage3 is borked. But seems this error is only seen sometimes?

mysql have been rebuilt, solving the above problem.

but then fails on a build problem

which is odd as the cpu do support thumb mode.

Upstream bug report: which is supposedly fixed. Confusing. Or was that only in Qt-4.8?

Others seeing same problem

There is also some mention in the above bug report about Thumb2 not really being a supported platform for Qt.

Seems armv7 is not a supported platform either. Supported platforms are "Generic ARM" and "ARMv6", and ours gets detected as "Generic ARM". If QT had detected it as QT_ARHC_ARMV6 it probably would have worked. Later versions supposedly support ARMv7 as well.

Configure flags needed: -arch armv6 -no-neon

Also need the Thumb2 patch from QTBUG-16402 fix ARM Thumb2 build

Alternatively enable "-Wa, -mimplicit-it=thumb" in rpmrc letting GAS automatically adjust ARM assembly code for Thumb mode.

All changes merged mainline in qt-4.7.4-3.fc15


python-pyblock-0.49-2.fc15 is arm patched, remowing -Wall for unknown reason.

The issues with this package are discussed here. Needs a little upstream (anaconda team) intervention.


anaconda-15.31-2.fc15.src.rpm in stage4 is a modified package which adds an ARM screen font (only for armv7, not for v5). It may be better to specify that ARM doesn't want a font (like S390 already). Resolution being tracked in #743429.


GA version suffers from various failures which are fixed by the updates version.

The armv7hl tree includes glibc-2.13.90-9.0.arm1.src.rpm with the following changes. The ones crossed out are no longer necessary in the F15 updates version.

  • Disable tests - only for ease of build
  • Change make flags - only for ease of build
  • Enable eabi - already fixed in F15 updates
  • glibc-arm-tzdata.patch - obsoleted by backporting a better fix from F16 as is done in glibc-2.14-7.arm0 for armv5tel.
  • glibc-arm-mathdefs.patch (see #744589) - note that this will only affect builds that run with -Werror; in the interests of moving into koji quickly, this patch could maybe be dropped for now?
