Only for 64 bits so not working on my X5000 with Ubuntu 32bits :-)
AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE / Ubuntu Linux
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / CF HDD / RetroNET connected to the world

I used the 32-bit binary from wicknix. It works on my X5000 but not my G5.

Wicknix will compile the 32-bit version.

Hi All,

I am compiling a 32-bit Linux PowerPC version of Arctic Fox 27.9.15 in a virtual 32-bit QEMU PowerPC machine (QEMU with KVM-PR support) with Lubuntu 14.04 LTS. It takes a very long time despite KVM-PR acceleration. But I can’t promise that I am successful. If I was successful then it will support older Linux distributions like Ubuntu 14.04.

Have you ever tried to set up a chroot with a 32-bit kernel? I wonder if that would work to compile a 32-bit binary faster...

Hi Casey,

It isn’t possible to use an extra 32-bit kernel inside the chroot. The chroot uses the kernel from the host system.

Further information: ubuntu MATE 15.10 PowerPC in a chroot on Lubuntu 12.04.5 PowerPC

BTW, the compiling of the 32-bit Arctic Fox wasn’t successful in the virtual 32-bit PowerPC machine.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

There wasn't enough space available for compiling Arctic Fox on the QEMU HD img. I added a new big img for Arctic Fox and moved all virtual machine files to my PC (i7 4.5GHz). The compiling is faster in the virtual PowerMac G4 machine on my PC.
