B43 Package fails to build on Linux PPC

Reported by: malcolm.herring@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


On Fedora-ppc (but not on Fedora-i386) the B43 package no longer builds. This dates from the time that B43 was updated for OS-X.

Warning when 'make menuconfig' is run:

tmp/ 'select' used by config symbol 'TARGET_uml' refer to undefined symbol 'ppc'

Output from 'make':
