Dear riscv64 porters, I do not have much porting experience, but discovering that an open source CPU might soon be actual and usable reality recently thrilled me quite a lot! I created a QEMU virtual machine as explained on the wiki to try it out. Since gnupg2 does not appear to build correctly at the moment, I tried to fix it, and discovered that the problem is actually easy: tests fail because running it in parallel on not very powerful machines makes them miss some timeout. The same already happens also for hppa, according to the debian/rules file. The simple attached patch fixes the problem. Now, with all probability you already knew about this, but maybe not, so I thought I would be useful to write this email. I do not know much about porting procedures, but if I can be of any help, for example by filing this patch against the sid gnupg2 package, I can do it. Thanks, Giovanni. -- Giovanni Mascellani <email@example.com> Postdoc researcher - Université Libre de Bruxelles
