Question regarding lame pkg

snehal
Hello ,

I am working on a new architecture - ppc64le (powerpc 64-bit Little
Endian) and I was working on lame pkg on our ppc64le environment.

The upstream tarball has the config.guess,config.sub, configure and
libtool files

I find that lame would require a patch to either config.guess or needs
to pick up the latest automake (1.13.4 or above) version from upstream.
The latest config.guess which has the ppc64le patch incorporated can be
found at :
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD.

We have also worked with libtool maintainer to get alpha source release
that has all the needed bits to support building on ppc64le. A stable
release is expected by end of year. Until then,  we request you to spin
off a new version of your package using the alpha libtool release. You
can pick up the libtool alpha source release from either of the below :
ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.2.418.tar.gz (1.6MB)
ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.2.418.tar.xz (920KB)

Could you please build and install the libtool alpha version and be able
to spin new versions of lame which would support ppc64le?
Please let me know once you spin of the new pkg

Your response is highly appreciated

Thanks,
Snehal

Great that IBM seems to be putting support for powerpc. If only some
help could be offered to vanilla powerpc 32 bit big-endian... (Hint,
hint). :)

Which code are you using as basis for your work? I have respun
autotools some, say, months ago and I don't know how far that would be
from the libtools that you have in mind.

My (not-so-current) git mirror of our CVS tree is at:

    https://github.com/rbrito/lame

I can regenerate the files that are needed (if any). I don't have any
idea if Robert wants to release a new version of lame in the mean
time, though.

That being said, I would expect linux distributions (in particular,
Debian) to already use new autotools automatically via dh-autoreconf.

Is this still needed given the git tree that I mentioned?

It would be best for me if this new version got included in Debian.
Then, that would make my work trivial. (And every other package would
also benefit from the new arch). OTOH, I see that we only have
2.4.2-1.3 in Debian's unstable.

Thanks for your work also. You can, sometimes, see my messages on
debian-powerpc and (quite less frequently) on Debian's package
multimedia maintainers mailing list.

:)... I currently don't have information about it, but will get back to
you. Have sent mail to team here.

I am looking at released tar and not GIT repo,so that distro guys can
directly take it from there.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lame/files/lame/3.99/lame-3.99.5.tar.gz
It would be great if you can install new libtool and spin a new tar ball
with new configuration files (which would have ppc64le support) and
release tar.
Libtool is available at following

ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.2.418.tar.gz  (1.6MB)

ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.2.418.tar.xz  (920KB)

the distros , we would be working on that part too.

Hello Regerio,

I did not hear from you since some time.
Could you please let me know if you can spin the pkg  with new
config.guess and libtool, which has support for ppc64le and release a tar ?
This would be really a great help for enabling distro work.

config.guess  is at
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD.


Libtool is available at

ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.2.418.tar.xz (920KB)

I did look around for vanilla powerpc 32 bit big-endian, however most of
us are currently working on
ppc64 big-endian and ppc64 little -endian

Thanks,
Snehal
