Description Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2016-09-02 07:24:06 UTC

PPC seems to be broken in gstconfig.h, maybe we need to check for __powerpc__ instead of __ppc__ but without easy access to the hardware that's guesswork.

Maybe we should make it a #warning if we don't list the architecture, and fall back to no unaligned memory accesses. That would keep it working, but possibly slower than needed.

I have access to a 32-bit powerpc, can try next week.
Comment 2 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2016-09-05 07:39:17 UTC
s390x, powerpc, ppc64el, ppc64 are affected. Most likely also powerpcspe, maybe sh4 (or is that __sh__?).
Comment 3 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2016-09-05 08:06:32 UTC
powerpc is fixed here:
