Description Joey Stanford 2005-01-19 16:42:04 UTC
util-linux-2.12p fails to compile on ppc64 resulting in a repeatable asm clobber list conflict.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge util-linux
Actual Results:  
(can't paste in - errors with asm clobber during linkage)

util-linux is a major system dependant such that no other software will get thru the emerge process 
until this is fixed.

why don't you use stable marked packages??

Comment 2 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-20 12:31:23 UTC
ok, I've succesfully installed util-linux-2.12p, so the problem is somewhere else.  Could you post the exact error and you emerge info output?
Comment 3 Joey Stanford 2005-01-20 16:28:47 UTC

My Apple G5 needs the ~PPC tree to build which picks up this version of util-linux.  I have no direct way of posting to bugzilla so I'll need to dump the error to a file and do some swizzling. Will have it here shortly.
Comment 4 Joey Stanford 2005-01-20 20:41:52 UTC

I scaned the ppc area and found the packages that I needed have been promoted from ~ppc to ppc so I removed ~ppc use flag and got an overall good compile.  

Marking this as resolved / wontfix  because until this hits production it's really not an issue. Also, Markus tested and was not able to reproduce which means it is probably specific to my machine.

Comment 5 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-21 02:48:06 UTC
If you use ~ppc/ppc then this is a ppc and not ppc64 problem.

Closing now

I missed typed, I use ppc64 now instead of ppc64 ~ppc64
