This is a temporary situation.  We encourage RISC-V to send their changes to these projects upstream as soon as possible.

Revision as of 17:09, 17 February 2018

Shortcut:
Arch:RISC-V

All about building Fedora packages for RISC-V. If you want to help build packages or fix broken packages, you've come to the right place.

Autobuilder

All packages are now built with an autobuilder which picks up packages as they are built in Fedora Koji build system and tries to rebuild them for RISC-V. The status of builds, build logs, RPMs and SRPMs can be found here.

The autobuilder can also be manually told to build a particular package, or to do a mass rebuild of every package in Fedora. If you need a particular package rebuilt, please ping rwmjones in the #fedora-riscv IRC channel on FreeNode.

We are currently only building Fedora 27 packages, but expect to move to Rawhide in the near future.

Fixing broken builds

Fedora has an upstream first policy and Fedora/RISC-V tries to stay as close as possible to this rule. Please send all your riscv64 changes to the upstream project. From there they will trickle down into Fedora.

If your package needs specfile changes, then you can ask the Fedora package maintainer to add those changes for you. However you should not do this for hacks, for patches which should go upstream, or for missing dependencies. If there are missing dependencies, work on the dependencies first. More information on this point.

If you have fixed a build, then there are two ways to get it into Fedora/RISC-V. Either do a primary arch build in Koji, which (if successful) the autobuilder will pick up automatically. Or ping rwmjones on #fedora-riscv and he will kick off a manual build.

Testing builds locally

Download the stage4 disk image and follow the instructions in the README file.
