64 bit PowerPC porting machine available
The University of Augsburg and IBM have provided some of our
developers with access to three POWER based machines (OpenPower 720
) to help with Debian's port to 64 bit PowerPC. We have also been
given a G5 on loan which can be used for debian-installer, glibc and
other work. The G5 is currently with Jeff Bailey.
A selected number of (powerpc, d-i, glibc, gcc) developers have gained
access to the POWER systems already. Bastian Blank announced some
success with powerpc64 support for glibc today . If you are
interested in working on the powerpc64, please contact me and I'll see
if I can arrange an account for you. There'll probably be more
general access in the future.
