  • Problems running PTS 7.2.1 on PPC

    Quite a few tests fail due to their dependency on yasm (which is not available nor needed on ppc), like the x264 test. Also -march= is not available on PPC's CFLAGS, here it's -mcpu=. Other tests fail without giving a specific reason (on standard console output), like the glibc test.

    Nonetheless, many tests run just fine! Here are some results (http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...ERNS-MERGE7133). Unfortunately I did not manage it to get PTS to reckognize my PowerMac as one system, so it's 16 systems.

    Thanks, interesting tests. Unfortunately I have no access to PowerPC hardware so there are some tests or other quirks where it might not run right.

      I was positively surprised to see it running rather well! But I think some quirks can easily be avoided - like checking for yasm as a dependency, even if x264 is already installed. I doubt this will work on ARM neither? Several tests failed for this reason. The hard coded -march= is another thing, but I think there are not many architectures besides ppc which don't respect this.

        PTS should be checking for yasm as an external dependency already. Most (nearly all?) tests do work on ARM.

          Well, that is exactly the problem (on ppc). It should not check for yasm. yasm is x86/x86_64 only.
