It's time for a small status update. This won't be an extensive list, but at
least give you an overview of what has happened since the last time :).
*** We can successfully build ~3500 out of ~4700 Factory packages! ***
I'm still not able to find, where is the right project with armv7l
failing packages, could somebody send link?
(which can be found on http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:ARM
) doesn't show
any armv7l packages...
Unfortunately Factory is updating so fast that we just
haven't managed to do a full build of all these shina packages for the last 3 weeks,
so packages you see in the download repository are from 3 weeks ago. To fetch the newer
builds, just run "osc getbinaries ...". Beware of dragons though :).
If it is worth of effort, I can set up that new Efika MX as OBS worker
(if someone help me - prusnak or miska probably already have
experience with this). I would just disable it when I'm trying to fix
or test something.
So what is still missing from here? Well, these are the
pieces I'm tracking right now:
* Kiwi support (Marcus is on it!)
* Kernel testing and making-it-work 
I think/hope that I can help a bit here.
* Exception handling  keeps us from building Java,
keeps us from building most of the other 1200 packages
* hwinfo probably needs some love for ARM
* yast2 could use some love as well :)
* X drivers are probably still missing
* Fixing broken packages, there are still a few that are not broken because of exception
And with this hopefully too.
