PowerPC/POWER Special Interest Group

Members

Meetings

  • We don't schedule any IRC meetings, although starting at the Alpha phase of any release we'll try to find some time each day to discuss open issues on our #fedora-ppc channel on IRC .
  • The next 'real' meeting of the Fedora-PPC team is planned at the FUDcon 2013 in Lawrence, Kansas.

Current Development

Fedora 18 is currently under development.

Previous Releases

You can find information about previous Fedora for Power releases at Architectures/PowerPC/PreviousReleases.

Build system & Resources

All official Fedora PowerPC packages will be built by the koji build system at the PowerPC koji hub

All non-scratch packages that haven't been deleted by the garbage-collector are available at the package storage, scratch builds can be found for a few days at the scratch repository

Building packages on the PowerPC koji build system

Everyone with a Fedora account can do at least scratch builds of packages on the PowerPC koji build system, package maintainers who can check changes into the git repositories can build updated packages that will later on end up in the distribution.

Doing scratch builds

After running fedora-packager-setup from the fedora-packager rpm

ppc-koji build --scratch f17 yourpkg.src.rpm

These builds will be removed from koji automatically after a while.

'real' builds

'Real' builds will be pulled into the package repositories and into the install images, unless they got replaced by later versions. After running fedora-packager-setup from the fedora-packager rpm

ppc-koji build f17 "$(fedpkg giturl)"

or

fedpkg build --target=f17
(this works only when you have a symlink from ~/.koji/ppc-config to ~/.koji/config)

(currently broken: bugzilla 787776 )

PPC Shell access for debugging

David Woodhouse (dwmw2), Josh Boyer (jwb) or Karsten Hopp (Kick_) may provide you access to a PPC box for build debugging purposes. Just send them an e-mail with an request and a public SSH key.
