ARMv6j repository ready!

After about 500 package rebuilded from source the ARMv6j repository is ready!
It's available here:
It can be used for bootstrapping or just as additional apt source. HOW-TO will be released soon!
I've just test the boot time: armv4t in 32secs, armv6j in 23secs.

Package like OpenNX, Spice (virt-viewer), Spice XPI, FreeRDP (git 1.1.0), RDesktop and Citrix Receiver are already inside the repo! Other packages (VMWare Horizon, vWorkspace etc) will be released soon!

Remember: all package inside the repository are builded for ARMv6j Raspberry Pi board! It will not work on other boards/architecture!
If someone want to mirror the repo let me know! Thanks!

  1. Will there be a image available with the ARMv6?


    1. not yet! .img will be available soon!

    2. Allright. Thank you very much for your replay.

    3. Not being pushy by any means, but will this allow for pcoip for vmware view?

    4. PCoIP need Thumb2 extension, so, no. RaspberryPi didn't handle it, maybe a future hardware revision.
