debian-armhf buildds operational
at last! The buildds are operational!
you can see the 3 builders building the debian packages (I'm setting up two
more as I write this). For a start we have to build ~1900 packages and the
rest will follow :)
Reg. the technical setup, I used NBD as a block device serving method,
performance is quite good and I haven't noticed any slowdown yet. I think with
5 nodes it's going to be a respectable performance, if there is a need to
enable the rest 5 efikas I have here, I can always use a second ethernet
adaptor on the server (which btw, is a Pegasos II again from Genesi, running
Debian :). In short 5 buildds + 1 NBD server at less than 100Wts (the Efika is
at ~7Wts and the Pegasos II ~40Wts :)
The next step is starting to send patches to Debian itself and working on the
Debian Installer -which I already have something worked on.
Many many thanks to Aurelien(aurel32) and Hector(zumbi) for their precious
help, without them I'd probably be at step zero still.
