As far as a build server, if I can get this thing running fairly
stable, I could probably host a build server at least part-time, due
to the monsoon season is upon us right now, so power outages can be
a problem. I have 4Mbit. downstream here, of which I could dedicate
2Mbit. to the build box, but only about 750Kbit. upstream
(considering I'd need a little bandwidth for myself). My J6750 has
dual 875mhz. cpu's and 7 gb. of RAM. I'll try to notify Helge if I
can get this thing online, and I'll hand him the leash via SSL and
see if he can make it play nice! Might as well have it doing
something useful. :)
Don't want to discourage but running a buildd will take a lot of
effort after it set up. Quite a few packages need a tweak here
or there to get them to build. I have a collection of crib notes.
I believe that you will find your upload bandwidth too small. When I
was on ADSL, uploads took forever.
Some useful links:
Your J6750 may well be able to keep up but there have been issues on
some archs in keeping up.
All the packages needed to setup a wanna-build infrastructure and a
buildd are in the archive. What
we lack is a trigger script that can handle the distributed nature of
the source and package archives.
The easiest solution might be to mirror the archives to a local
machine as there is a local trigger script.
