Hi.

As you know, I often work on Debian package building.

For some months now, the DDB provides packages for others architecures (powerpc and mips).

For the basic architectures (amd64, i386 and armel), I have physical machines for building, but for powerpc and mips, I use QEMU virtual machines.

As it took some time to create them, I decided to distribute them.

Every virtual machine is pre-configured using this article posted on March 2011, and pbuilders are created for Debian Lenny, Squeeze, Wheezy, Sid and Ubuntu Hardy, Karmic, Lucid, Maverick, Natty, Oneiric, Precise. Also, a README file containing all information for launching machines.

So here they are :

here are the MD5 sums, to check if the download went well :

  • AMD64 : 3e55dd81c20c2a6f67a43a97d7eab986
  • I386 : 75c10975e65b1f816bc0a0711e9d12f3
  • MIPS : 9192d16ec83d31b3de0b381179e6eeef
  • MIPSEL : e01b1b1cdae64786d56b278c97e90c65
  • POWERPC : 63d0d2ceac849de0b0c1ad51eea4ee44

To conclude, I thank Aurélien Jarno (aurel32), because he distributes QEMU virtual machines for most architectures, which served as base for these building machines.

Thanks.
