We are trying to build 'hwloc 1.4.2' on Linux on System Z. To build hwloc,
need to perform the following steps:
- gmake all install
We are getting error while performing first step i.e. running configure
error message is :
configure: error: No atomic primitives available for s390x-ibm-linux-gnu
If we investigate configure script, we got to know that it deals with some
assembly related operations in this part. And, switch-case does not cover
Linux on System z architecture (s390/s390x), hence it throws error and
If we exclude this part (i.e. commented exit part only), configure gets
executed till end and Makefile gets generated.
Questions: We have following questions related to this:
1. Is 'hwloc' supported on Linux on system z?
2. What exactly this assembly part is used for?
3. What functionality will get affected if we exclude this part?
Please assist us.
Thanks & Regards,
