Subject: [gentoo-user] Gentoo PPC64 multilib how?
Date: Tue, 18 Mar 2008 10:19:36
1 Hi,
3 I have a ppc64 server at my company.
4 A lot of ebuilds are working well on this platform, It is ok (apache,
5 php, mysql, postgresql, samba, ftp, irc, etc.)
7 But we need some game servers, too.
8 For example the Quake3 dedicated server compiled perfectly and it is run
9 smoothly, but clients totally useless: after connecting to the server,
10 it is impossiple to move from the respawn point.
11 After a long googling I found that mod's are compiled to 32 bit systems
12 (OSP, WQ3 etc.) and due to that, it is not possible to get those sources
13 and there are no ppc64 binaries for them, they are not working in ppc64.
15 I realized, I need the multilib, but the question is, how?
16 I found this old doc:
18 I would like to avoid to downgrade to 2006.0.
20 I use this profile at this moment:
21 /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/ppc/ppc64/2007.0/64bit-
22 userland/server/power5/
24 The system is:
25 huinfoppc64 / # uname -a
26 Linux huinfoppc64 2.6.23-gentoo-r8 #1 SMP Fri Feb 15 10:05:24 CET 2008
27 ppc64 POWER5 (gr) CHRP IBM,9111-520 GNU/Linux
29 Is anybody there, who use ppc64 gentoo system?
30 Could you help me to find a solution (fully working quake3 dedicated
31 server) without changing profile?
33 Thx,
