Like the OP, I am attempting to build OM with MokoMakefile on debian
powerpc (a PowerMac G5).

The output from my attempted build is at

I did:

  make clean
  rm -rf build/conf/
  make setup
  make setup-machine-freerunner 
  make openmoko-devel-image

(Download of stuff isn't in this output because I've run this several
times before.)

setup-env contains:

export OMDIR="/home/russells/omdir"
export BBPATH="${OMDIR}/build:${OMDIR}/openembedded"
export PYTHONPATH="${OMDIR}/bitbake/libbitbake"
export PATH="${OMDIR}/bitbake/bin:${PATH}"

build/conf/local.conf contains:

MACHINE = "om-gta02"
DISTRO = "openmoko"
BUILD_ARCH = "ppc64"
INHERIT += "rm_work"

The third NOTE in the output at is

  Information not available for target 'ppc64-linux'

which I think is partly gathered from `uname -m`.  On my system:

  russells at maggie:~$ uname -m

Is this different from what uname -m says on Fedora?  I notice that
there is a powerpc* target in some of the .bb files.

I don't know anything about bitbake, and its output seems unconducive
to casual debugging in that there is not a lot of context for the

Any ideas?
