Have organised bandwidth so work should progress more on fedora-ppc kernel.
Having discovered jrpm I am using jython to bend it to my will :)
Jython 2.1+ on java1.3.1_09-i386 (JIT: null) Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. import com.jguild.jrpm as rpm foo=rpm.io.RPMFile(open("zip-2.3-16.i386.rpm")) hdr=foo.getHeader()
Next to play with natively compiled RHUG jython and jrpm, then try and build jrpm natively.
