Sounds great, Efraim. Let me know if there's anything that I can do to help with your efforts. I'm new to this, so I'll need tutorial on the basics.

I'd like to port Guix to my Apple Aluminum PowerBook G4 for freedom/knowledge sake but the documentation that I've read, and has left me with more questions than answers. > > Thank you, > > Scott > scmguru - I reached out to Carlos a few years ago and he said he had moved on and was pretty sure he didn't have his code or bootstrap binaries anymore.o I've attached a few patches to this email, which is about where I am right now on working on the 32-bit PowerPC bootstrap.

The change to bootstrap-guile I applied to master and the other 3 on core-updates, but I suspect they should all apply on top of master. -- Efraim Flashner אפרים פלשנר GPG key = A28B F40C 3E55 1372 662D 14F7 41AA E7DC CA3D 8351 Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed on emails sent or received unencrypted
