Phillippe Makowski tested Firebird 2.1.2 and flamerobin on Mips64 , seems that qmtest ran all OK , So i guess it can be stamped as an good port
I would really appreciate if you give these some testing.
2.0.4 is more urgent as this is what I very much want to release with
2.1.0 is possible for Lenny too, especially if 2.1.1 comes out soon.
Thanks in advance.
It is my pleasure to announce the widest architecture coverage for
firebird ever – amd64, arm, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, sparc
and amd64/i386 kfreebsd. Thanks to all porters! I hope alpha, armel,
m68k and s390 will get some porting attention too.
Testing more uncommon ports is also much appreciated.
Here is howto use it in debian
for the moment i have this in debian unstable
# aptitude update
# aptitude install -t experimental firebird2.0-classic
… tests … 🙂
# aptitude install -t experimental firebird2.0-super
… tests …. and same for firebird2.1-super/classic
