Is PowerPC 32bit supported?


(Cruplezone) #1

I’m VERY new to file syncing and decided to start hosting my own cloud, and syncthing seems like the perfect thing for that!

So I’ve got a WD Mybooklive nas and I installed debian jessie on it and would just like to preface this with the fact that I’ve never touched linux before this.

So, following instructions on: https://apt.syncthing.net/

I manage to add the PGP keys and stable channel to my sources. However when I got to do

sudo apt-get update

I get:

W: Failed to fetch https://apt.syncthing.net/dists/syncthing/InRelease Unable to find expected entry 'stable/binary-powerpc/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Did I do something wrong? Any help would be great as i’ve been dreaming of software like this for a long time.

PowerPC is not supported, sorry.

ah I see well it was worth a shot. Is this for the foreseeable future or should I keep an eye out?

I notice there was a thread for the same nas as mine in 2014 where it was stated no ppc would come soon but now it seems like ppc64 is supported.

also if you could recommend anything you feel would come close to the software you maintain here that would be really helpful. thanks!

Try this tutorial:

I haven’t tested it yet but it should do the trick.

I have a wd mybooklive with a ppc proc and debian jessie. I might give it a shot.

Damned I checked the tutorial and there is no way to build go for ppc 32bits :frowning:


(Jakob Borg) #6

Yeah, that’s ppc64 which we now do “officially” as well.


(Sergey Djam) #7

But whether it is possible to build from source codes?


(Audrius Butkevicius) #8

ppc32 is not supported by go.


(Sergey Djam) #9

If use old version go?


(Audrius Butkevicius) #10

I don’t think go ever supported ppc32.

You can try gccgo, but I doubt you will end up with something reliable. Before you ask, I have no pointers/suggestions on how to make that happen.
