Building Arch Linux for PPC

Hi team,
I know this platform is not supported however I would wonder if there would be any sort of complete wiki for making such option possible?
Obviously the chroot-crossdev-env, archiso and all of this combined together so I can make Arch based ditro fo my PPC hardware.
I would be interested of having some core Arch-build based scripts and essentially keep the Arch base however cross-compiled for PPC (namely my iBook G4 and PowerMac G5 smile)

Thank you,
Cheers,
Dali

Re: Building Arch Linux for PPC

I do remember many years ago there was a project for archlinux on powerpc , also there are powerpc packages in aur[1] ,

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: Building Arch Linux for PPC

This might help you. As far as I know, the arch toolchain is not really designed for cross compilation of full boot images.
