Account on ARM/Debian
I've been talking to Iain Buclaw, gdc's leader, and was surprised to 
learn he has a quite workable ARM port available. To make it 
production-ready, we should have some continuous test integration, which 
entails ssh access to an ARM/Debian account.

Is there anyone on this list who'd want to donate such an account?


Thanks,

Andrei

It would be pretty cool to run this on a Raspberry Pi! Anyone up to the 
challenge to build such a system?

The qemu-chroot environment I've set up is Raspbian, so the compiler
should be capable of running on, and producing applications for the
Raspberry Pi devices.

I've been looking for an excuse to buy a RPi.

I have a static IP and domain to donate as well.


If no one else already has one and is willing, I'll do it.
I'm already familiar with compiling GDC.

I wouldn't go out and buy one just for this.  The raspberry's are pretty 
underpowered anyway.

I've got a guru plug as well as a qemu environment setup (very easy to 
do), which are both available.  But honestly, cross-compiling from a fast 
x86 box is _tons_ faster than building on-device.  I don't know how well 
gcc is setup for cross-testing though.  That's always... tricky.

Later,
Brad

Cool!  There's a pull request open at the moment that you'll need to
patch (jpf just needs to amend two items and it'll be committed :)

Of course, but ssh access allows copying the files over and requires  
either complicated network setup, or static IP.
Which is why I mentioned it.  Either I or someone else could have a  
cross-compiler which simply copies the results to the RPi to be tested.
;)


It would seem to me to be a Good Idea(tm) to have actual hardware to test  
it.
Plus It's just a fun project.  I could host a simple website with it using  
vibe(I should really rebuild GDC to check that vibe bug report...) in  
order to have an actual "production" test project.

I'll need to receive the Pi first! =0

I hear it might have a long waiting list...
Time to do some shopping! =D

They're so cheap, it's no big deal even if they're a total loss.

I have a RasPi already!

I might be able to get it connected up to my brother's static ip and 
have it sitting headless on top of the router, but I'll have to ask him 
first of course!

I'll let you know what he says, and start asking questions about how to 
set it up if he agrees ^^
