I tried this with some core packages over the weekend, enough to chroot
into and play around with. The resulting environment works in qemu, but
when I copied the chroot over to the phone it give me an Illegal
Instruction error. Seems some armv5 code has sneaked in - possibly
through static linking - I don't know.
I suppose the solution could be to rebuild these packages within the
chroot, but I don't have nearly enough armv4 packages built for this. A
job for Koji?
Actually, I think Dennis has set up a koji instance for ARM, so if
want to try to use this to rebuild f8 for armv4l, that would probably
be a good test of the system. And it should dramatically reduce the
amount of work you'll need to do to get an ARMv4 Fedora up and running.
Would there be much work involved in getting this up and running?
