The first test rebuild of Artful Aardvark was started on July 6 for all
architectures, all components (main component and seeded packages finished,
unseeded packages still building).
For arm64 and armhf the gcc-6 packages are based on the Linaro 6-2017.06
Results (please also look at the superseded builds) can be found at
The test rebuild uses binutils, gcc-6, gcc-7 and linux packages currently still
in the proposed release pocket, which can also be found separately in the PPA
Additional build failures for packages in artful-proposed (not yet in artful)
can be found at http://qa.ubuntuwire.com/ftbfs/
Please help fixing the build failures.
Another test rebuild using GCC 7 as the default can be found at
For arm64 and armhf the gcc-7 packages are based on the Linaro 7-2017.06
The test rebuild uses gcc-defaults, binutils, gcc-6, gcc-7 and linux packages
currently still in the proposed release pocket, which can also be found
separately in the PPA
We are planning the transition to GCC 7 for late July / August. Please help
fixing the build issues using the update GCC.
