I'm representing a group of people interested in keeping a ppc64 big endian linux
No, we're not crazy, we're serious!
There are about a dozen of us in the software group (from almost everywhere in the world)
ready to help in testing, debugging etc... We're beginners, but we're willing to
learn (and we have a bunch of G5 iMacs and PowerMacs)!
After meeting some OpenSUSE people in France (Alionet), I decided on trying out Tumbleweed
So I have installed it last week on an iMac G5, and ... it is great! Really! Thanks a lot
for your efforts in keeping it alive and well!
I got some driver issues during installation using the net iso - I had to download the
full iso :-(, but besides one or two things, installation was fine.
(I'll do the installation again and take note of the errors I got).
I'm beginning to look at OBS and factory and studio - but I'm really just
(I'm not sure if susestudio works for ppc64...)
My first "mission" is to use OBS to build a libreoffice package (I couldn't
find the ppc64 binaries in any repository).
Thanks again for all your work, and I hope the powerpc mailing list will get more activity
