Description Wu Zhou 2006-07-12 02:12:10 UTC
To build frysk on ppc64, we also need 64-bit opcode, bfd, iberty libraries.  All
these three libraries are in binutils package.  But on RHEL4, RHEL5 (alpha),
FC5, FC6 (test1), there are only 32-bit binutils package. We need to download
64-bit binutils from
to resolve this dependence.

So I am requesting that this package being included in the lastest Red Hat
distros. Thanks.

binutils- still could not be found on FC6 Test2.
Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2006-08-29 03:08:46 UTC
This is for libopcodes, not sure how it should be done.
Comment 3 Wu Zhou 2006-11-03 03:09:49 UTC
Fixed in FC6. Close it.  Thanks.
