Subject: ATLAS on PowerPC
[please keep the bug in Cc:, I’m not subscribed to the list]
Dear PowerPC porters,
As a co-maintainer of atlas, I intend to force a specific PowerPC CPU
architecture when the package is built on buildds (in order to fix
Atlas gives me the following options: POWER3, POWER4, POWER5, POWER6,
POWER7, PPCG4, PPCG5.
I would like to know which one of these is the most generic
architecture, so that the atlas package thus modified will work on all
supported machines. I guess this is either POWER3 or PPCG4, but it is
unclear to me which one is more generic. Or maybe none of the two
encompasses the other, in which case I would like to know which one
would be the best choice from your point of view.
BTW, if you could answer the same question concerning the ppc64 and
powerpcspe ports, that would be great.
Thanks a lot,
