View Full Version : [all variants] Can Prevu cross compile ?

July 22nd, 2009, 09:20 PM

I have a 32 bit server on which I host a repository cache and I also have Prevu installed there to provide personal backports. I use this cache server from several machines, both 32 and 64 bit without problems.

Now, I need to back-port something for use on a 64 bit platform. My question is whether it is possible to achieve this using the 32 bit Prevu environment that I already have available.

This means the 32 bit machine building 64 bit debs. I expect it isn't possible but I thought it worth asking in case it is.

If so, how do I do it?

Many thanks in advance.

Well I didn't wait for an answer, I just created a 64 bit vm and installed prevu on it to build my 64 bit backports.

If anyone involved in prevu is listening, I would like to learn how to use it properly - I have some questions but I don't know if this part of the forum is the best place to ask about Prevu...
