TDE running on real MIPS hardware
when I was preparing my small builder for 'R14 preliminary stable-builds'
alternative apt source, I did not plan other architectures than i386 and
amd64. But then I made a few tests to probe ways to also build both arm
architectures. The tests were successful, so they are now available all
architectures as on the build-farm.
Given that builds for other platforms are going pretty well, I tried one more
experiment. Because I have an older SGI Indy workstation, I tried on my small
builder to build packages in addition for MIPS architecture. And experiment
has succeeded. With little difficulty is now built 100% packages!
Graphics card on my SGI Indy hardware unfortunately only allows 8-bit color
depth, and as I found on this color depth many TDE application crashes - see
bug 2033. Attached screenshot is therefore from TightVNC server, where I set
a higher color depth. I note that this machine has only 64 MiB RAM, so it is
very slow. But it works!
Note: Packages for Wheezy on MIPS are available in my APT source. If someone
has a better hardware than my SGI Indy (about 1995), you can try it and let
know how it works for you :)
