Excellent resource - thanks.

Is there a particular reason why your directory/file structure differs from the official 686 repos e.g. ftp.archlinux.org? I've noticed the following differences:
1. You have an extra /base directory which does not exist for 686.
2. Your glibc package is only in /base, whereas the 686 repos have it in /current/os/i686.
3. Your /current/os/i586 does not include a /setup subdirectory containing pacman and packages.txt.

It has come to our knowledge, that glibc with 'linuxthreads' is technically impossible to build on i586...

The most recent glibc PKGBUILD (2.3.5-8) compiles and installs cleanly without modification for i586 over here.

yeah, since when are linuxthread there? the i486 times or so? even earlier i bet. so how could they have possibly decided to not support linuxthreads on a not yet existing platform?  lol

Re: Arch - i586 - Repo [Project Start]

nice project. I'd be interested to try arch on a p1 and see how it works!


As is true for most people I know, I've always loved learning. As is also true for most people I know, I always hated school. Why is that?

Re: Arch - i586 - Repo [Project Start]

Is this project dead?  I have a i586 system I would like to get arch on but I couldn't find any relatively recent packages.  Am I on my own having to cross-compile etc ...

thank you

Re: Arch - i586 - Repo [Project Start]

Check out the Wiki and search for i586. I'm afraid you'll be pretty much on your own compiling everything. Unless you find some other people who are interested. I used to compile on i686 for i586 but maci didn't like the idea.

Re: Arch - i586 - Repo [Project Start]

Thanks for replying.  That's what I figured. I did find some outdated compiled packages on ftp://xentac.net/i586.  Those should be enough to get me going.
