Debian armhf is on the wiki at http://wiki.debian.org/ArmHardFloatTodo as always.
People are recommended to sign up to the new ml at http://lists.linaro.org/mailman/listinfo/cross-distro
- Steve has working perl cross-building patches, submitted into the Debian BTS:
- perl itself
- several example modules
- Adam continuing on armhf bring-up in Ubuntu:
- getting armhf included in Soyuz
- multi-arch issues with armel/armhf, working on that (triplet issue)
- (prompts discussion about triplet again)
- Konstantinis looking into java bringup
- debian java packages seem to build fine using gcj
- stage1 works for both openjdk 6 and 7
- 6 uses the asm code generator which has hardcoded softfp abi -ie it won't link properly
- 7 uses the jamvm by default, which builds fine but then fails regression tests
- plan is to just push for 7 for armhf, no point in supporting older stuff
- Hector looking at getting armhf into the (main) Debian archive
- Which hw to use?
- Some discussion of options - lots of RAM and native SATA would be nice!
- Server boards would be best, but not available yet.
- [ACTION] Hector to start a wiki page listing current options
- Where to host?
- At ARM, with backup machines elsewhere makes sense.
- [ACTION] Steve to ask about hosting at ARM
Hoping to make progress in August, using time at DebConf to work together
- Buildd admins: suggested Konstantinos and Hector
- Which hw to use?
- Lots of folks going to be at the Linaro sprint in Cambourne in August, which is good
