Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 1/2] config: fix RHEL7.6 build errors on Power 9 systems
Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2019 13:36:40 -0500
Message-ID: <1565807801-72546-2-git-send-email-drc@linux.vnet.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1565807801-72546-1-git-send-email-drc@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

gcc 4.8.5 used on RHEL 7.6 can identify a Power 9 CPU but cannot generate
Power 9 code when the "-mcpu=native" command line argument is used. Test
whether the compiler can generate Power 9 code and adjust the machine
setting appropriately.
