PPA for Nexenta packages.

Asked by Stas Sușcov on 2009-06-17

Hi, I created some deb builds for nexenta, but I can't upload those to my PPA because of the following error:
---
Rejected:
...deb : Unknown architecture: 'solaris-i386'
---

How is it possible to make lp's PPA accept nexenta builds?

Thanks.

Hi Stas,

I think ppa archives only support the archs that Ubuntu officially supports. So solaris-i386 packages cant be built.

For this to be possible, solaris-i386 would have to become a port that ubuntu supports (or atleast recognizes as an ubuntu port).

thanks

Moved from nexenta to launchpad itself.

Basically, what anilg said. Supported architectures for PPA are:
i386
amd64
lpia

You can change your debian/control file to build on a smaller set of arches, or if you really need solaris-i386 then I'm afraid PPAs won't help you.

Ok, thank you Julian.

I believe there are no plans to open PPA support for nexenta package builds in nearest feature.
