Default Bug#463643: no i386 and powerpc build daemons available which can run 64bit binaries

Package: general
Severity: important

There are no i386 and powerpc build daemons which run a 64bit kernel.
This means that packages requiring testsuites to be run for 64bit
won't run and won't be tested on a regular basis. If we do want to be
able to test packages build for a biarch setup we should have build
daemons to be able to run the testsuites for these packages as well.

This currently affects at least gcc-4.X and glibc.

Hi Matthias,

Apparently there are ppc64 machines available here:
http://tuxppc.rz.uni-augsburg.de/

I do not know if they run the 32- or 64-bit port in their userland,
however.

At worse, you can also look for people having such installations on the
following wiki page:

http://wiki.debian.org/VolunteersForPowerPC

Have a nice day,

I think he was speaking about _official_ buildds only. Everything
else shouldn't really be a problem in any case.

Gruesse,
