Check 10 .recipe files to see if they build properly on haiku x86_64 nightly, open issues for any that are broken

completed by: Timothy Gu

mentors: Scott McCreary, humdinger

For this task you need to have

  • Haiku x86_64 installed; get a x86_64 nightly image and see the Haiku Guides for more information on using Haiku. There's also a Userguide and Welcome page on your Desktop when you boot Haiku.
  • Haikuporter installed and the haikuports bitbucket cloned, see the "Getting started" wiki page.

Find 10 .recipe files which have an ARCHITECTURES= entry that is either missing x86_64 or has !x86_64 or ?x86_64 indicating that it is either broken or untested.  The task is to attempt building 10 of these and noting which ones work and which ones don't.

  • Keep a list of which ones worked and which ones didn't and submit a plain text file with your results.
  • Open one issue each for every non-working app at the Haikuports Bitbucket
