Page to track building of ports for armv6.

Package build status

As of a recent -CURRENT poudriere build on the cluster, there were 969 IGNOREd ports (including 13 blacklisted) and 130 failures, for a total number of SKIPPED 2755. (You may also view the index to all the builds on -CURRENT.)

Some of the IGNOREd ports are expected failures for non-x86 architectures (e.g. no linux emulation support). This list attempts to help coordinate the efforts to fix the other ones.

Patches already available for testing

Please see Bugzilla search on "armv" and "attachment is patch"; sorted by Summary (which is usuallly portname)

A brief glance suggests these will unblock at least 100 ports.

MarkLinimon continues to test a few of them as of 20171218.

How you can help

Build failures

Build failures that are already known

These ports have already been marked BROKEN or IGNORE.

In general only the first case is worth working on; however, port maintainers are inconsistent in their use.

The best way to browse these problems:

The Search textbox may be used to narrow down the results.

Examples that should be relatively easy to address:

Finally, the reason may be missing. Contact MarkLinimon if you need help.

Build failures that are new

These fall into several categories:

It requires some detective work to figure out which is which, but for now, let's narrow it down to the latter group.
