Disclaimer first: I know very well nothing is perfect, and a lot of work needs to be done on certain aspects of HaikuPorts. That said…
I’ve been trying for a while now to get certain recipes to build in HaikuPorts on my netbook (running R1Beta3-x86_gcc2), but several of the recipes I have tried so far have failed to even get anywhere. I know x86_gcc2 is not an ideal architecture for most of the recipes, and in fact nearly all the ones I have looked at even are marked as broken on the architecture. To get around that, I used the ‘search x86’ command in a terminal to switch over, but this still doesn’t seem to have made any difference; the recipe still fails at the start with the message:
$RECIPENAME is reported as broken on this architecture
Tested and failed recipes (so far) are:
Is there a way of perhaps changing my architecture permanently to x86 on this setup? I don’t really have a need for BeOS backwards compatibility on my netbook’s setup so getting off of the need for gcc2 wouldn’t be a major loss.
