Building your application for architectures like s390(x), PowerPC, ARMv8
To build a package for s390(x) architecture in Fedora, use s390-koji command:
$ s390-koji --scratch build rawhide srpm_pkg1
The above command will start a scratch build of package srpm_pkg1 against Fedora rawhide for s390 and s390x architectures. Use “s390-koji --help” in console to see all available options.
To build against other Fedora branches (e.g. F23, F24), specify specific branch name to s390-koji in argument:
s390-koji --scratch build F24 srpm_pkg1
To package application exclusively for s390(x) archiecture, use ExclusiveArch tag in RPM spec file
ExclusiveArch: s390, s390x
In Secondary Architectures section, we saw how to get/create iprutils srpm as an example. Now, you already have srpm (src.rpm) file of iprutils. The following example will demonstrate how to build an application for s390(x) architecture from srpm:
# Initiate iprutils package build for s390(x) architecture $ s390-koji build --scratch rawhide iprutils-126.96.36.199-1.fc25.src.rpm Created task: 2183374 Task info: http://s390.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2183374 ....
For each build, a Task ID is created in s390 koji. You can view build status and it’s log by going to the url provided in Task info.
