Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2017-12-07 17:00:59 UTC
default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/13.0/64bit-userland/make.defaults:SYMLINK_LIB="yes"
default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/17.0/64bit-userland/make.defaults:SYMLINK_LIB="yes"
hardened/linux/powerpc/ppc64/64bit-userland/make.defaults:SYMLINK_LIB="yes"

We'd like to kill SYMLINK_LIB support completely. Please look into preparing a new 17.1 profiles that don't use that.

You may check if app-portage/unsymlink-lib tool can be of use. It's been made for amd64 but it might work for ppc64 as well if the layout is compatible enough. If you need some changes to make it work on ppc64, let me know.
Comment 1 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-01-09 23:27:11 UTC
At the very least we will need to recover from 17.0 breakage: bug #641474
Comment 2 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-01-10 08:36:37 UTC
Well, there's no reason why you couldn't disable SYMLINK_LIB while staying with the 'old' gcc.
Comment 3 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2018-10-07 03:40:42 UTC
Looks good to go according to my testing. I'll make some 17.1 profiles for ppc64.
Comment 4 Georgy Yakovlev archtester gentoo-dev 2020-01-25 07:47:31 UTC
new profiles are here ready for review

https://github.com/gentoo/gentoo/pull/14413

I did not go with 17.1 name as I'm flattening and changing structure anyway, not sure it's really needed.
Comment 5 Georgy Yakovlev archtester gentoo-dev 2020-04-01 03:08:51 UTC
taking bug, I'm working on it.
moving ppc64 to CC. sorry for spam.

as of https://gitweb.gentoo.org/proj/releng.git/commit/?id=2b6807ae87d74d8fed6f22a6bae1b1707c24dc9c
new ppc64 stages should come with new profile.

new profiles enabled.
profile bashrc migration checker added:

got user reports that switching profile via unsymlink-lib is smooth ( we are riding amd64 success here)


TODO:
figure out ppc(32) profiles with multilib/64bit userland
implement migration for ppc(32) profiles
deprecate old ppc64be profiles
deprecate old ppc(32) profiles

Comment 12 Georgy Yakovlev archtester gentoo-dev 2021-11-23 21:37:14 UTC
ok this is mostly done.

remaining are ppc64/32bit userland profiles which I'm planning to deprecate soon as I figure out migration procedure.
