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.
