thanks to the work the community does on porting the Chromium browser
to ppc64le, we can have also the qt5-qtwebengine library available.
Currently there are ~20 packages that are excluded on ppc64le due the
unavailability of the webengine.
My "talos" COPR repository  contains now the main qt5-qtwebengine
package, pyqtwebengine bindings for Python and also the qmapshack app.
Building calibre fails in a test, investigating now. If there are other
apps you would like to be made available, let me know.
The plan is to merge the ppc64le support into the official Fedora rpms,
but it can take some time and depends on support from the maintainers of
the QT stack.

Fw: ppc64le build failures in the mass rebuild
by Dan Horák
as there are still a number of ppc64le build failures from the mass
rebuild, please make the FTBFS bugs block the "PPCTracker" so we know
Here is what we know so far
- segfaulting ICE with "during RTL pass: final" or not being able to
assemble the sources, those should be fixed in gcc-12.0.1-0.3.fc36, so
a rebuild should fix them
- issues with "__LDBL_REDIR1_DECL", they are caused by the bundled
gnulib not being compatible with the installed glibc, a fix is to
replace the bundled cdefs.h with more recent one
seen eg in lftp (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2045780)
or dhcpd-pools (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2045310)
- various "long double" related issues, some might be fixed by building
in proper order, but some will need further investigation, a corner
case in libffi should be fixed in
- various "vector" related issues/ICE, for example in cantera or mame
- libtool de-duplicating internal libs, when it shouldn't, like
(.data+0x0): undefined reference to
this is a generic problem, a fix is proposed in
and workaround is
- something else?
