Build System & Resources

Koji

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

Everyone with a Fedora account can do scratch builds of packages on the PowerPC koji build system. After running fedora-packager-setup from the fedora-packager rpm

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

Scratch builds can be found here, and will be removed from koji automatically after a while.

For a build to end up in the final Fedora for Power distribution, that NVR must have been built on the primary Fedora koji and then pushed as an update for that release. koji-shadow is used by Fedora for Power to track both the stable (e.g. 'f18' during f18 branched development and 'f18-updates' after GA) and updates-testing tags of each release, as well as the current rawhide tag. Please feel free to find dwa or Kick_ on the #fedora-ppc IRC channel if you have questions about the koji-shadow process.

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.
