Debian ARM Hard Float (armhf) port TODO list

State of features for armhf

This list omits many features that "just worked" from the beginning, and thus have avoided attention from porters. Thus it looks worse than it is. Detailed package-specific notes are on the page ArmHardFloatProblems.

xf86-video-msm

no BR, ftbfs, needs porting. Builds fine if CFLAGS are cleaned up in Makefile. Makefile should NOT be specifying float and cpu flags since gcc defaults should be correct. No idea if it works yet.

xf86-video-glamo

639856 - Bug discussions seem to indicate there is no point in this package on armhf. Perhaps it should be closed.

Triaging:

  • Configure scripts potentially needing fixing
  • Check that nothing is stuck in wrong dep-wait or not-for-us state in debian-ports.
  • Provide fixes for packages.

NMU:

  • Packages that have open FTBFS bugs most likely FTBFS on armel buildd's as well. 0 Day NMU period for RC bugs is closed.

  • Packages with longstanding armhf usertagged bug should be open for porter NMU.

  • For inactive maintainers, go for it, for active maintainers try first pestering the maintainer.

Other:

  • There is currently no easy migration path for users of the current ABI Debian ARM port. Thought needs to go into this.
  • We need more people with armhf systems to start running popularity-contest.

Recording ARM Hard Float bugs to Debian BTS

To: control@bugs.debian.org

user debian-arm@lists.debian.org
usertag bugnumber + armhf
thanks
  • Alternatively, when filing the bug:

Package: bloatlib
Version: 12765-broken1
User: debian-arm@lists.debian.org
Usertags: armhf
  • one can use "bts" command from devscripts to set usertags:

bts user debian-arm@lists.debian.org . usertag $DebianBugNumber armhf

$bug_number-subscribe-debian-arm=lists.debian.org@bugs.debian.org
  • It is recommend to try to agree on some other mailing lists besides <<MailTo:debian-arm AT lists DOT debian DOT org>>
