Description Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2018-08-09 13:06:17 UTC
I've been wondering for a while whether it's really necessary for everything in this port to be limited to amd64.

Might it be possible to separate out a minimal set of tools that truly require amd64 and allow the rest to build on other architectures?

Comment 1 Kris Moore freebsd_committer 2018-09-07 16:56:09 UTC
This port is more or less defunct, replaced by trueos-utils-*. However we could make it run on non-amd64 architectures, but this is 100% untested on our side.
Comment 2 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2018-09-07 19:32:53 UTC
I can certainly test on i386, and I think the powerpc and arm developers would rather have an untested port than none at all.  In any case, lifting the ban on other architectures will make it sensible for me to support installation via sysutils/desktop-installer.  Thanks!
Comment 3 Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2018-09-29 16:27:53 UTC
Do you plan to commit trueos-utils-* to the FreeBSD ports tree in the near future?  I see the the frameworks exist, e.g. https://github.com/trueos/trueos-utils/tree/master/port-files, but they're not in /usr/ports on a stick FreeBSD system.  Thanks...
Comment 4 Rene Ladan freebsd_committer 2019-11-02 20:07:28 UTC
Expired port removed.
