You can't just be ppc, as the ppc kernel won't boot on ppc64. You
shouldn't be all ppc64 either, because the ppc64 binaries tend to be
slower than their ppc counterparts. What you really need is a small
mix of both, but that makes developing one or the other somewhat
difficult. Welcome to the hell of multilib.
I suggest making use of mock to create chroots of pure archness to
develop with. Mock can give you a pure ppc chroot and a pure ppc64
chroot for which to develop in.
To be honest, I am perfectly happy to live in a world of
kernel is ppc64
everything else is ppc
So my plan is:
1) remove all devel packages for ppc64 and replace (if missing) with ppc
2) remove all duplicate applications ppc/ppc64 keeping only ppc
3) keep all libraries on both versions so I can (just in case) still run everything
would that work?
You'll know it soon!
