Hi,

It seems the package is currently limited to i386 only.  However,
the source seems to have support fore more arches.  Looking at
the source, I think the following arches are supported:
- m68k
- mips/mipsel
- hppa
- sparc
- alpha
- i386

It also seems to have a "C" variant.  Would it be possible to
support the other arches with that? 


Kurt

None of the other architectures have worked for many years, and in
particular the compiler ports for those arches haven't been maintained
in a long time.

The "C" target never worked very well and only one person was able to
get it to work at all.

There _are_ plans for a new virtual machine that should easily port to
all arches.  At present about 50% of the work has been done.  With luck,
 a lot more will be done this summer, but in any case it will be done
sometime in the not too distant future.

Package: mit-scheme
Followup-For: Bug #365530

Taylor Campbell (Riastradh) says mit-scheme should now work under
amd64 (and other arches?) using the native backend.  It'd be super if
this was enabled in debian/control so amd64 users could just do
"aptitude install mit-scheme".

Not quite accurate.  There's now a working C back end that is portable
to all architectures.  This will be a new package, "mit-scheme-c".  The
main holdup at this point is that I need time to do the packaging.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi,

I'm curious about mit-scheme on amd64's progress as well.

I've been able to install mit-scheme on amd64 by dowloading the i386 package
and installing with dpkg --force-architecture -i, though this is not ideal.

Knowing nothing about package maintenance, and armed with the very basic
TLDP howto (
http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/Debian-Binary-Package-Building-HOWTO/) and
not enough time, I managed to build mit-scheme on my amd64 system and make a
package that passes a lintian check. You can download it here
http://www.gmclean.org/mit-scheme_9.0.1-1_amd64.deb. Let me know if it
works, if I'm a complete putz, etc. Hope it helps some folks, works on my
amd64 machine.

Best wishes,

-Garrett

Today (2013) I see amd64 bins on the upstream site[1].

Cheers,
