The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that hppa meets the architecture recertification criteria for etch.
The architecture is publicly available without NDAs via:
Contact your HP account rep today!
The following machines are available to developers:
paer.debian.org - maintained by DSA (Matt Taggart and dann frazier local admins), connectivity via HP.
The Debian port is maintained by the following developers, who are familiar with arch-specific issues for this port
The port is being actively used at the following sites:
??? Add more here ???
HP's Linux lab uses at least one production lab machine with >40 users
- popcon = 44 machines, assume 44 users
Popcon indicates 44 users of the architecture as at 2005-10-08. 44 individual machines + a machine at HP with 40 users on it > 50 needed for release qualification.
The installer is being maintained by Richard Hirst and it's currently working effectively. Successful installation reports are available at: bugs.debian.org
Upstream support is provided by:
- glibc: Actively hindered by glibc upstreeam, Carlos O'Donell is your man for glibc issues
- gcc: John David Anglin. Randolph Chung also very capable.
- g++: John David Anglin. Randolph Chung also very capable.
kernel: Matthew Wilcox, Grant Grundler, Kyle McMartin, Thibaut Varene, others
- boot loader: Paul Bame
Archive coverage and Autobuilder support
- There is more than enough hardware floating around to bring in additional build daemons as necessary. The current buildd is able to cope just fine though, and isn't even using both cpus!
Both etch and sarge are >98% built
The port is currently above 97% up to date according to the buildd stats (95% cut off)
The port has currently built over 95% of the archive according to the buildd stats (90% cut off)
The port builds from unmodified Debian source.
The following machines run buildds for the port:
