"Beehive glimpse" - live build status


Hello

As I'm not too into writing content for the web site, I've made it so that the 2nd news article has (mostly) live data about the on-going builds for -current.

http://arm.slackware.com/

I hope you like it. I do :-)

Seriously neat!

The current machines both have install dates within the last week, do you do fresh installs on a routine basis on the build machines?

And *at the time of this post*
Activities......:-
Building package xap/mozilla-firefox [ 1 of 1 ]

Would that be for mozilla-nss or say, testing the rust revert?

Intriguing to see a bit of the behind the scenes, thank you!

Sometimes I just reinstall it because it's been a few weeks, it's performed many builds, and I like to sanitise - as there are often artifacts left over from the build process. I also reinstall to test the installer, after every few Kernel releases.
The secondary build machine is reinstalled less often because I like to have a stable -current to return to, in case the ground gives way - so to speak. That used to happen every now and then - some update would hose everything. That hasn't happened in years though, as ARM Linux matured.
The secondary machine can build Kernels too, since the only dependency is gcc - which rarely changes, so I can build the Kernel on an older version of -current.

Yes, it broke with rust-1.38 so I was testing against 1.37. Fortunately it will re-build against that version.
