Recent Ubuntu releases (and therefore packages built in PPAs) don't run on ARMv5 devices such as the GuruPlug. Do you still want ARM builds?

If the packages built in PPA don't run in ARMv5. What ARM version is supported?

William Grant (wgrant) said : #3

Ubuntu's armhf architecture requires ARMv7 with Thumb-2 and VFP3D16.

Hello,

Our devices have Marvel Kirkwood 6281 (ARM9) and Kirkwood 88F6281 SoC (ARM9E).

I think that the PPA ARM build must work in this devices.

Greetings.

PPA builds for an Ubuntu release will work on hardware that that release runs on. Kirkwood is an ARM9 architecture implementing the ARMv5 instruction set, which hasn't been supported since Ubuntu 9.04.

Can you help with this problem?
