Build from source for ppc64le support

Based on

ppc64le is only supported for Enterprise version.

I’ve managed to build from source on ppc64le on RHEL 8.6. I have yet to test the functionality.

However, my question is, what does this actually means?

Does it means that the developer hasn’t fully tested (or don’t plan to test) the MongoDB Community version for ppc64le?

Or if there’s any issue, the community won’t entertain it?

Please advice.


Another issue that I can see is on applying fixes. You will have to manually pull and rebuild from source on the latest changes. Then manually apply the binaries on the servers.

A belated welcome to the MongoDB Community @psyntium !

Unsupported platforms and server edition combinations do not have official binary packages or build/testing infrastructure. You can still build from source and run server tests to test your build environment.

You can always submit bug reports in the SERVER project at, but there will be limited assistance for platform-specific issues because test environments are less readily available.
