What is the status or what are your plans of a dedicated crux-ppc mailing list?

If we run into any restrictions, I will just rent a cheap root-server somewhere
out there. I need that anyway for several projects anytime soon.


Just FYI:
I am in the process of recompiling (stage 1) a superset of the current
crux-x82-2.2 core, the crux-ppc-cvs core with my own (LFS-like) build
history for my embedded mpc8540 powerpc CRUXish distro. 

Currently, it works pretty good. The following packages built fine:

The following are not yet done because they failed somewhere:

root at ecam:/foxdist/ports/core_failed$ ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 328 Oct 18 21:06 glibc
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 152 Oct 17 22:28 openssh
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 192 Oct 17 23:11 slocate
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 128 Oct 17 23:17 unzip
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 128 Oct 17 23:17 usbutils

glibc-2.3.6 fails with current binutils-2.17 according to a bugreport
in the web:
http://foo-projects.org/pipermail/lunar-dev/2006-July/005821.html

So, I suspect that glibc-2.3.6 on x86 fails to build, too, once
binutils is updated to 2.17. (just compiling now...)

I'll see to what toolchain versions I'll finally stick.

The rest should be considered low-risk.
I don't need yaboot and friends, because I boot the kernel
out of flash.

Best greets,

Clemens Koller
