With the announcement of Fedora-10, I am sure people would want to know
whether anyone is building F10 packages for ARM.
I have been doing just that. So far I have built a set of basic packages
(including gcc) that boots F10 on ARM. These packages are, for now,
built on an F8 build root. Once I have rpm-build built for F10, I could
rebuild all the packages on an F10 build root. And then make the rpms
Ok, I now have the build closure with rpm-build available for F10. Thus
far, I have upwards of 450 rpms built for F10 (on an F8 root).
I have now started re-buildling these rpms on F10. While building rpms
on the F10 root, one problem that I see is some binaries keep crashing.
I could narrow down the problem to "-fstack-protector" option to gcc. If
I do not pass that option, things work fine. Else, I see the binary
seg-faulting. Is anyone aware of a known issues with gcc-4.3 on ARM, as
far as stack protector is concerned?
