Get an [[Aranym/Quick]] image (sid from ca. 2008/2009 with libc 2.7) and put an updated [[M68k/Cowbuilder]] chroot on it. The status of everything else is unknown, however, you can probably install the etch-m68k snapshot. But if you wanted to dig out ''that'' you wouldn’t be here, right? Read [[M68k/Installing]] for a list of all possible ways.

Quick start: Get an [[Aranym/Quick]] image (sid from Janurary 2015) and update it. Once you have it running, grab a /var/cache/pbuilder/base.cow at [[M68k/Cowbuilder]] or run “cowbuilder --create” with the appropriate options yourself or install sbuild.

== buildd ==

The first batch of [[M68k/Autobuilder|buildds]] is working since Christmas 2012, thanks to IngoJuergensmann and WouterVerhelst.

== installer ==

Works. Regularly updated images are available here [[https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/ports/]]
Line 9: Line 22:
Some packages are in debian-ports.org unreleased, not in unstable, because they need m68k-local patches. For some, this is because maintainers keep unstable frozen during the squeeze/testing freeze in order to be able to upload fixes via unstable. For some, this is a collection of patches or workarounds that are not, or will not be, included in the proper Debian packages. Once installed, however, it’s fine to work from unstable only (unless you want to hack the packages from unreleased). Some packages are in [[DebianPorts/WhatIsUnreleased|Debian unofficial ports unreleased]], not in unstable, because they need m68k-local patches.

== gcc-4.4 ==

Seems to work pretty well. Has TLS backport.

=== current issues ===

 * [[http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47533|BZ#47533]]

== gcc-4.5 ==

Not ported. Has TLS upstream.
Works since version 8. Most patches upstreamed.
Line 35: Line 38:
== kernel ==

The latest upstream kernel works. We use the default kernel from unstable.

Amiga: The stock kernel should work on all Amigas. Support for some external graphics cards is missing. Most block device drivers and network drivers work.

Atari: The stock kernels work on ARAnyM, but lack Ethernet drivers on real hardware that aren’t in mainline yet but only on Geert’s branch (they might end up in Linux 3.9 though). The kernels may not work on an Atari TT (see the mailing list for information about that).

Macintosh: Tested to work on a Centris 650, works. Other 68k Macintosh machines are reported to work as well.

VME: [[AdrianGlaubitz]] has a VME machine, but no installation tests run yet.
Line 37: Line 52:
eglibc-2.11 with TLS backport is used. Current issues:
 * [[http://lists.debian.org/debian-glibc/2010/11/msg00077.html|res_init segfaults]] (might be related to BZ#47533 in gcc?)
Most outstanding issues are apparently fixed now. We still seem to have [[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=636286|invalid locale files]] leading to lots of segfaults building some d-i package.

== klibc ==

Fixed, works.

== rsyslog ==

rsyslog works now, though you might still want to use sysklogd ;-)

== aptitude ==

Seems to work now, too; apt-get is still better, but pbuilder-satisfydepends-aptitude is usable and does not suffer from #695076 which made building KDE packages impossible.

This page attempts to track the current issues of the Debian/m68k Linux port. Mailing list is at debian-68k@lists.debian.org and more information can be found in this Wiki under M68k and M68k/Porting.

Installing

Read M68k/Installing for a list of all possible ways.

Quick start: Get an Aranym/Quick image (sid from Janurary 2015) and update it. Once you have it running, grab a /var/cache/pbuilder/base.cow at M68k/Cowbuilder or run “cowbuilder --create” with the appropriate options yourself or install sbuild.

buildd

The first batch of buildds is working since Christmas 2012, thanks to ?IngoJuergensmann and WouterVerhelst.

installer

Works. Regularly updated images are available here https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/ports/

packages

Some packages are in Debian unofficial ports unreleased, not in unstable, because they need m68k-local patches. For some, this is because maintainers keep unstable frozen during the squeeze/testing freeze in order to be able to upload fixes via unstable. For some, this is a collection of patches or workarounds that are not, or will not be, included in the proper Debian packages. Once installed, however, it’s fine to work from unstable only (unless you want to hack the packages from unreleased).

Compilers

We're using the default GCC version that Debian uses.

An LLVM port is work-in-progress https://github.com/M680x0/M680x0-mono-repo

A Rust port has been started but is waiting for the LLVM to be completed https://github.com/glaubitz/rust/tree/m68k-linux

OpenJDK

Works since version 8. Most patches upstreamed.
