I did not have Internet access for more than a week, and lost a bit
track, what is going on with the openSUSE ARM port. What I see is very
good news: over 3000 packages build already (

Yes, thanks a lot for that!
my questions relate to it:
- what triplet is used to compile hardfloat binaries? In the archives I
"Currently we're building with -march=armv7-a -mfloat-abi=hard
-mfpu=vfp3-d16 -mthumb." Is it still the case? (I was asked by Debian
ARM HF project lead last week...)
Yes, we're using the common ground here. However, our triplet is
"gnueabi" instead of "gnueabihf" at the last position because a lot of
parts in our toolchain break with gnueabihf and we haven't found a good
reason to not use it.
- how are the EFIKAs used?
Currently the two smarttop ones are building the same repo internally
using chroot (we can't use chroot in publicly available nodes :(
security prevails) to basically give us a good overview on which
packages are broken because of qemu and which ones are actual package bugs.
As far as the smarbooks go, one of them accompanied me to LinuxCon / ELC
in Prague and got demoed to quite a bunch of people showing openSUSE
running on ARM :).
- I have openSUSE running in a chroot on my smartbook,
Is there already an image which could be booted directly? Or
instructions how to install it natively on the EFIKA?
The last state I knew (just flew back in yesterday - was on the road for
the past 3 weeks) was that Adrian was looking at getting kiwi to work
with ARM. At that point we could just build images :).
I'll be an FSF Hungary conference this weekend,
and would be nice to
demo my smartbook with openSUSE running native :)
Just pull the same trick that I did on ELC: Run it in chroot with a
separate X session :)
$ X -ac :1
$ for i in /dev /proc /sys /dev/pts; do mount --bind $i /suse/$i; done
$ chroot /suse
# export DISPLAY=:1
tada~. You now have something that feels like a SUSE system despite
running on an Ubuntu kernel. It's good enough for demoing right now IMHO :)
