[hard float port] We are already there?


I look with huge interest to the (future) hard float port, which I guess will use more efficient my ARM devices.

Maybe our favorite British Doctor can tell us some news from this battlefront?

Hello Mr Vader! Good to hear from you.

Check the change log for -current from a week ago today.

Once it's ready it'll be pushed in to the tree.

Come on, Doctor!

Stop acting like an American and give us some news, like some comments about the stage of/where you are with...

You know, something little-little to satisfy our curiosity.

Haha! Mozes is well known for his enigmatic announcements.

One thing is for sure. Once it's ready it'll be pushed in to the tree.

You can probably count on it not being before that time.

I think that you would like to read more into them. They should be taken literally.

This is true.

Bootstrapping is complete. The bootstrapped OS was installed using the Slackware installer, and now the package set that comprises the 14.2 release are building using hundreds of passes with some manual intervention to upgrade and apply some patches and hacks here and there. Once 14.2 is complete I'll merge in the changes in -current; but prior to then given that most of the ARM packages were rebuilt only a few months ago with gcc 5, it makes sense to rebuild them as-is and only upgrade if necessary.

Never take yourself too literally, Mozes.

Final toolchain rebuild after some fun with the glibc upgrade, and it's all done.

Anticipation is killing me. Great work Mozes!

[Update 2016-08-27] "I stare at the screen while boot-loading text scrolls by. I can't contain my excitement and there's a gleam in my eye. I'm waiting in awe for the log-in prompt to appear and the tension is mounting because I know it is near. Then I... JIZZED IN MY PANTS!!!"

If you're a fan of Lonely Island, you'll get this.
