Default OpenBSD 5.9 Released - March 29

Excerpted from today's announcement Email.
Quote:
We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 5.9.
This is our 39th release on CD-ROM (and 40th via FTP/HTTP). We remain
proud of OpenBSD's record of more than twenty years with only two remote
holes in the default install.

As in our previous releases, 5.9 provides significant improvements,
including new features, in nearly all areas of the system...
Full details may be found at http://www.openbsd.org/59.html

As a newbie on OpenBSD macppc I noticed that lumina has both its packages present in the other architectures but not in the powerpc one , lumina-0.8.7.tgz is missing .

How or to whom can I reports this ? I already checked on the official ftp and the openbsd.cs.toronto.edu .

Hello, and welcome!

There's nothing really to report. As the release announcement noted, the architectures all have different numbers of packages available:
Code:
    alpha: 7450
    amd64: 9295
    hppa: 6304 
    i386: 9290
    mips64: 7094
    mips64el: 7846 
    powerpc: 8383
    sh: 111
    sparc: 1105 
    sparc64: 8528
Not only are some applications architecture-specific, in order to have an application package available for an architecture, all of its build and run dependencies must also be available. Lumina requires 413 dependencies (build, run, or both), and all must be available on macppc in order for Lumina to be used there.

While I was running $ make full-all-depends | wc in order to get that number for you, I also looked at the port Makefile, and noted that Lumina requires Qt5. Qt5 on OpenBSD requires gcc 4, and while gcc 4 is available on nine architectures ... macppc is not one of them.

Edited to add:

"powerpc" is in the architecture list for gcc 4. I was looking for "macppc." But Qt5 is not available for macppc, so there must be a Qt5 dependency which is not available on the platform.

Ok, that is a quality breakdown , didn't know make full-all-depends.

Well back to 5.8 then for me but at least I learned something.

Thanks for your nice explanation and time.

Just to clarify in the event you missed my edit -- gcc 4 is available on macppc, but Qt5 is not.

And now I know why. I looked at the Qt5 Makefile:
Code:
BROKEN-powerpc =        never built - gcc ICE
An ICE is an Internal Compiler Error.
