Regularly macppc package builds ?

Christoph R. Murauer
Hello !

I know, that package builds depend on available resources - are there
planned / regularly builds of the -current macppc packages ?

The reason I ask (it is not more then a question) is, that I like to
try a new installation of -current on a second PowerMac G5. The
available (as I wrote this message) base system is from January 9 and,
the packages are from December 18.

If the gap between the base and package build is so huge, how I know
with which -current base system version the packages are built ?

Thanks for answers.

Christoph

Look at the bulk build reports:
https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&m=151358009116029&w=2

The bulk build takes 17 days. If you can't build your own packages on
powerpc, -stable is probably a better option for your needs.

I run -stable on a second PowerMac. Building packages using the ports
tree is also no problem. I was just curious whether I can find out
which -current version is used to build (as shown at the link - done
with kern.version=OpenBSD 6.2-current (GENERIC.MP) #113: Fri Nov 24
11:34:06 MST 2017) the packages before the packages / the bulk report
is available.

Regards,

Christoph

No, you can't see the version prior to the full bulk build finished
because sometimes the build doesn't work, the system crashes, etc.

Thanks, good to know.
I simple archive the .iso's from the base system as they are
available. The bulk report show's which is the right (if I don't want
to build packages self).
