Ok, I'll try and be a little more specific. Do you know of any
machines that are available to kernel team members, or more
Are there debian machines that are suitable for doing such a build
should the need arise? It seems that if it is just a matter of running
a build and watching bugs, then whoever updates kernel-source could do
the ppc build. That is assuming someone like yourself who knows a bit
more about ppc is available for consultation of problems arise.
There should. At least on ppc, i offered a pegasos machine to the
debian-admins and it got rejected because there really wasn't need, so ...
Many folk have got free pegasos ppc hardware from genesi, including Christoph
and Jens, so there should be no lack of such boards.
generally debian developers, to do ppc builds?
There is bruckner, but i wouldn't recomend it, as it is a motorola
powerstack if i am not wrong, and rather slow and old, There is malo and
voltaire which are dual-G4 powermac (500MHz), and i believe one of the
laters should do it. They are developer only though, which may be a problem
for certain of the kernel team members who are not yet debian developers.
I may be able to provide a pegasos box to whoever decides to take over this
burden, but can't promise anything. Do you volunteer for that ?
It seems that no one else is jumping at this idea, so yes, I guess so.
Right now I'd like to build from kernel-tree 2.4.27-10, thanks
for your instructions on how to do that, very much appreciated.
I looked at malo and voltaire, both seem to be busy, presumably
acting as buildds, and there is also the problem of installing
kernel-tree, as I don't have root. In short, if you could make a machine
available that would be most excellent. SSH access would allow
me to start the build ASAP. If you want to physically send hardware,
thats ok too (though I am not sure where to put it), but lets
talk about that later.
