Looks like PyPy  is close to porting their JIT-compiler to PPC, but
need a ppc64 box.
I don't know if it's appropriate to bring this up here, but does anyone
have a ppc64 box for them to use? (I don't know if it's an ongoing
(sorry, not a subscriber)
The libnice package constantly fails to pass at least one test (
./test-symbols.sh - test for properly exported symbols ) on ppc64. I'm
sure that the problem is with wrong path to some scripts of binaries
while executing this test.
Could someone with PPC64 hadrware investigate this issue, please. This
package blocks a lot of VoIP related stuff from rebuilding. Or maybe
we should just disable this test (or even the entirel %check target)
With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
I've not been involved much on the fedora-ppc list. I've been looking
into extending to the Fedora release criteria  to allow secondary
architectures, like PPC, to provide a consistent goal-post for
determining release readiness.
My topic for this mail though is whether it would be appropriate to move
this list to lists.fedoraproject.org ? There is certainly no rule
that says Fedora secondary architecture mailing lists must exist on
lists.fp.org, but I thought for consistency it might be good to move the
Any thoughts/concerns/objections? If not, I'll be happy to submit a
request to move things over.

Apologies, perhaps a bit of cart before the horse on my end. The current fedora-ppc@ list is focused on "List for discussion of fedora on the ppc platform, particularly Apple Macintosh centric". With the current revival effort of the Power architecture in Fedora as a secondary arch, the team working on that is primarily focused on ppc64. While there are certainly are similar challenges from a release engineering perspective, it seems appropriate to me to just call the new list what it focused on ... ppc64(a)lists.fedoraproject.org.
I fully expect there to be knowledge sharing between ppc and ppc64, however very little of the install media produced for ppc64 will be useful for non-IBM hardware.
Greetings to all. I have two ppc PowerStations (4 PPC970MP's) running
Fedora 12 and have a few days free time. Is there working ISO
available that I can use to update my system? If not, is there a way
I can upgrade now to a working version of Fedora 15 or 16?
Best wishes, Robert.
