Bootstrapping Fedora mips64el

Current status: Stage 5

Issues: Architectures/MIPS/2015Bootstrap/mips64el/issues

Stages 1 and 2

Stage 1 - Cross-compile kernel, glibc, gcc, make and other tools to be able to either boot a system or create a working chroot

Stage 2 - Build a working RPM from upstream sources


Stages 1 and 2 have been skipped. Instead of cross-compiling tools and building basic root filesystem, the existing Debian environment which has a working RPM and most of the libraries required for bootstrapping Fedora has been used.

Stage 3

Build packages using RPM until mock can be used. Make the system bootable on real hardware and in QEMU.

Using RPM and libraries from Debian Sid available from http://mipsdebian.imgtec.com/ a small set of RPMs forming a very limited Fedora root has been built. Not all the dependencies are satisfied and a few sonames do not match between Debian and Fedora, but installing the stage3 set with rpm --nodeps forms a working Fedora chroot that can be used for building.

Stage 3.1

Since Stage 3 requires commenting out all BuildRequires and supplying all the dependencies manually, it seems to be more practical to use a "true" Fedora chroot as soon as possible. The minimal root built in Stage 3 has been installed and used for further building. Since this is somewhere between Stages 3 and 4, it has been named Stage 3.1.

Stage 4

Build everything using mock until a reasonable set of packages is built and Koji can take over.

Fedora 22

Fedora 23

Stage 5

Rebuild everything using koji.

Fedora 24

Stage 6

Have koji-shadow set up and track primary.
