Fwd: Re: Fwd: Old kernels used for sparc daily builds


Two more weeks and no answer from either Geert or the SPARC buildd
maintainers. I'm CCing this to debian-sparc in the hope to at least
get some status update.

IMHO the best solution would be to adopt the same setup as on most
other architectures: To build the d-i daily images on a buildd. See
below for more information on the setup.

If I don't get an answer by the end of the year I'll add a note to the
daily images overview[1] and possibly similar pages that currently no
sparc images can be provided until some steps in to do the necessary

Hi Geert

Excerpts from Gaudenz Steinlin's message of Mit Nov 10 22:43:37 +0100 2010:

I did not receive any answer from you about this. Are you still
interested? Or is someone from the sparc buildd maintainers interested
in adapting the same setup as is used for other archs?

See http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2010/03/msg00599.html for how
to setup the daily builds on Debian build daemons.
