BTW, while working on DDU I've removed SPARC parts I've encountered ;)
Anyway I had no way (or desire) to test them.
Most interesting is likely dmi_info.

Thanks.  That will be a big help.  I'd recommend weekly builds, rather
than daily builds.  I'm sure that will be adequate.  My build, when
it's completed, will be at least a year behind the current state of
OI.

First: Gary, this is phantastic news, congrats to it! I'm looking
forward to hear more from you.

Second: Till, yes Gary and I have been in contact but since I have
not enough time, my progress is probably somewhat slower. I also
have newer bits running, but my approach is - as you mentioned -
doing bootstrapping a system to be able to build recent bits in
the correct way.

I'd be happy to hear once someone has built a bootable OI media
for sparc and would take up of these also.

Best regards,

Hi Gary

Thank you so much for this Work. I don't personaly use sparc but ir is
good to see people doing this kinds of projects.

Do you know about Agnar's Project to get OI building on SPARC? I can't
remember if I ever pointed you towards him and his OI on Sparc work. His
angle was to jump from an existing OI distro to current packages and
later looking in V9OS.

Greetings
Till

Congratulations Gary this is great :)
If we get to the point that we can setup a build machine this would secure
your work.

[oi-dev] Toward a SPARC distro of OI

2019-06-17 Thread Gary Mills
I'm part way through this long project now.  I began with v9os
installed on a Sun T2000.  v9os is a SPARC distribution that uses IPS
packages.  I've been building IPS packages from oi-userland source.
This process has gotten easier now that all the build tools I need are
in IPS packages.  I've been replacing v9os packages with oi-userland
packages.  My goal is to replace all of them, and finally to produce a
text ISO and package repository for SPARC that's entirely based on
oi-userland.

So far, I've built and packaged versions 5, 6, and 7 of the gcc
compiler.  The commands for IPS packages are all packaged for python
2.7.  My system now has 106 packages installed from oi-userland,
versus 343 packages from v9os.  Most of the oi-userland products
required very few or no changes to build and package for SPARC.

For perl, I've removed the 5.16.1 version from v9os and installed
versions 5.22 and 5.24 from oi-userland.  Likewise, for python, I've
removed 2.6 and installed 2.7 and 3.4.  Perl libraries are all
packaged for 5.22.  Python libraries are all packaged for 2.7.

I'm submitting this message to the mailing list mostly as a progress
report.  I would, of course, appreciate a bit of help with this
project.
