The clue to build ppc64 RPM’s

Remember, I talked about building RPM’s on SLES10SP2 on ppc64 ? Well, turns out I was rather stupid .. and it was rather simple (don’t ask me why I didn’t think of that). I tried asking solar, I used Google (apparently with the wrong search parameters), nothing though. Not a clue.

Today it bugged me again, so I used Google again. This time with “ppc64 suse rpmbuild“, and guess what I saw within the preview of the second hit ..

And here I thought I was missing something, turns out I was really stupid though .. *shrug* Building stuff like nagios works with that just fine ..

Update: or not. It worked only a single time and is broken ever since again. Guess I’m gonna reload the box on Tuesday.
