  • glibc dropped support for IA-64

    IA-64 support was dropped from what will become glibc-2.16 a few hours ago: http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.g...d155ab39909411

    So it seems that glibc-2.15 will be the last release which works on Itanium. Probably not many people will be sad about this. I wonder if eglibc will follow suit or try to continue maintaining the IA-64 code.

    The changelog says "the IA-64 architecture could move to ports", whatever that means.

      glibc-ports is a separate tree which contains glibc code for less popular architectures (mips, m68k, older ppc32, yes even arm).
