#3069 closed defect (invalid)

LibFAME fails to build under 64-bit systems without patch

Reported by: willimm Owned by: blfs-book@…

Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


When trying to compile LibFAME on a LFS-6.6-rc1 based Pure64 bit system, I get a error in the configure step that says it dosen't recongize the x86_64-unknown bit of the arch.

Well, CBLFS uses a patch that updates both config.guess and config.sub so that LibFAME compiles under 64-bit systems. I've posted a link to it:

Since I think that we should target the now released 6.6, I'm considering this patch for the current book.

Please don't open any more tickets because things don't work with LFS-6.6. That is not the target BLFS is intending right now.

I'm closing the ticket as invalid. Now, if on an LFS-6.5 system it won't build in 64-bit mode, then we can raise a ticket.

That sounds like a very legalistic view of the problem, but I have no interest in this package and no 6.5 system, merely an interest in explaining how to fix it. In the past, quite a few packages had this sort of problem (jpeg6 was probably the main one), and they could be regarded as unmaintained.

The general fix is to copy a current config.{guess,sub} - e.g. from /usr/share/automake-x.y/ - into the package [ in one known case, a2ps-4.13b, they live in auxdir/ ].
