The Gentoo HPPA project is designed to bring the Gentoo GNU/Linux operating system to the HP Precision Architecture (PA-RISC) platforms. We aim to provide a usable computing environment for your various HPPA related endeavors. Since hardware graphics support for Linux is rare in HPPA computers, the project focuses on server usage.
- HPPA 1.1 is 32-bit
- HPPA 2.0 is 64-bit
- HPPA is big-endian
- HPPA notably has an unusual stack direction (it grows upwards!)
- Our current developer hardware is hake.
HPPA is a security supported architecture. It runs pretty stable.
ARCH=hppa has best-effort stable keywords: stage3 and installcd uses stable packages.
Please keep adding hppa@ to CC list for STABLEREQs if hppa already has stable keywords for a package.
ARCH=hppa has no stable profiles. This allows for package cleanup of old packages without waiting for hppa@ completion. It's expected such package removals occasionally break hppa tree.
If you need help, want to help, have some problems, or if you just want to speak with us, join #gentoo-hppa (webchat) on Libera.Chat. We are always happy if someone report us a successful installation and always ready to help if you got problems.
On the other hand, if you discover a bug please fill a bug report in our Bugzilla.
A mailing list is available, too. To subscribe, visit the mailing lists.
- Handbook:HPPA — A handbook dedicated to installing and configuring the hppa architecture., an effort to centralize documentation into a coherent handbook.
