I've been working on getting Fedora 14 moving forward with the
assistance of Dennis.
I've almost got the build root done except for a few notable
exceptions (glibc, python, perl, sqlite, nss I'm looking at you....)
and the things that depend on them.
A lot of the of the failures (python/sqlite/nss) are in the test
suites so they should be relatively easy to fix. I want to try and get
upstream to either fix or disable the offending issue where possible.
The glibc issue is interesting... it seems its a regression from F-13,
we had to apply a patch for F-13 but even with all that in place I
still get some failures. So it seems to be a regression (and we're
seeing it on the F-15 glibc one as well. I'll do some more testing and
follow up with the logs etc so that someone more smart than I am might
be able to comment and assist :-)
All help and feedback welcome :-D
I've setup a tracker bug for various issues here:
Once I have the last of the buildroot issue cleaned up we'll release
one of the automatic tools onto the dist-f14 packages and see how
quickly we can get F-14 Gold out of the way and move onto the more
interesting things :-D
Just an update on this, the buildroot is basically done. The two main
outstanding issues on this is glibc  and perl  and I would love
some help on both of those issues.
I don't think the glibc needs to hold up the running of
build-previous, I'm not sure about perl as I'm not sure if its like
python and is version dependent.
I'm also looking to get a alpha minimal install out there this week
for people to start playing with while we start to get the rest of the
core stuff built.
