Re: arm64 update - help wanted
Cool, have you seen any news on when we might actually be able to buy
the stuff (which afaict is a prerequisite for getting into Debian)
The debian-port arm64 rebootstrap is progressing nicely, and we just
passed 4200 source packages built, with another few hundred
pending. There are now 2 buildds running.
Any further info on this? google, the debian machines database and the
arm64 wiki page don't seem to be turning anything up.
Anyone who is interested in doing this work, or just has some idea of
how much work is involved, do please pipe up (I don't know if each of
these is 6 months or 6 minutes). There is a porter box available.
GHCi (ghc is done, but not ghci - is this hard?)
Note that 32-bit arm doesn't currently have ghci either.
I don't do haskell but I have googled the issue with no ghci on arm
before and iirc it's a problem with their "runtime linker", there was a
suggestion of punting that functionality to llvm but I didn't find any
evidence of anything coming from it.
A google search turns up some github links to what appears to be an
attempt at a port but i've no idea if it's a usable port or not. Might
be worth following them up and finding out what the status is.
