The CLIQ, 2001

This is the talk I gave as an invited speaker at the 2001 Colorado Linux Info Quest in late March of 2001.


Porting Linux to a new CPU architecture is an interesting mix of exasperation and the joy of discovery. To deliver a complete distribution requires effort in each of the kernel, toolchain, and application development spaces. This talk will provide an overview of the process, then compare and contrast Debian's ongoing efforts with PA-RISC and IA-64. Along the way, unique tools and processes Debian uses to maintain more actively supported architectures than any other Linux distribution will be explored.
