[WBEL-users] Status on WBEL?

After reading the July 2008 archives, it appears that there little or
no movement (anymore) with WBEL and updates?

Any info on the (official) status of WBEL?

Regards,
Patrick

"RHEL promises Errata availability for five years from date of initial release and RHEL3 shipped in Oct 2003."

That's a month from now (Sep 2008).  What does this mean for WBEL?

Actually, there's quite a bit of movement :-)

As we speak, I'm just waiting for OpenOffice to finish building on my
RHEL5 rebuild. Once that's done, I'll be putting John's WBEL graphics in,
and WBEL5 will be ready for release. It's getting very close now - the
platform is perfectly usable, just not in a state where I can redistribute
it yet...

Once that's done, I'll be in a position to fire up some VMs and get back
to WBEL3 / WBEL4 update rebuilds.

Well, I'm hardly "official", but I for one intend to continue using WBEL,
and I'll  be redistributing my builds through the wbelupdates.org site.

[WBEL-users] Anyone know about 64-bit build hosts?


Hi All.

I hope someone can point out my glaring mistake(s) here...

Now that the last[1] 64-bit package has finished building[2], I want to
integrate my build environments - at present, I've got a 32-bit
installation and a 64-bit installation, and I choose the appropriate one
at boot time.

What I want to do is to be able to build the 32-bit packages in the 64-bit
install. Which should be easy - but I can't get the hang of it.

I've tried "setarch i386" on the command line. I've tried "--target=i386".
I've added %_arch, %_target, and %_target_cpu to my rpmmacros. Still my
test build is trying to link to a 64-bit output file[3] :-(

Anyone know what incredibly obvious thing I've forgotten?

Everything Google finds for me tells me to use mock - but as I'm
bootstrapping the distribution, I don't think that will work. It'll also
be *incredibly* slow...

Thanks!

Vic.

[1] Well, except for openCryptoki, which really doesn't want to build -
and I'm not suifficiently interested in it to spend much more time on it.

[2] openoffice only takes 10 hours to build on my new box. And it only
failed 3 times. Grrr.

[3] Specifically, I get warnings from ld saying stuff like "i386
architecture of input file `.libs/xa_map.o' is incompatible with
i386:x86-64 output"

Re: [WBEL-users] Status on WBEL?

Support for RHEL3 is expected to end on october 31, 2010 according to
Red Hat's Life Cycle:
http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata/

Support for WBEL3 might follow that I guess.
