I have submitted change proposal to re-base golang in Fedora 24, with re-based golang
support for PowerPC should be considerably improved.
For testing. I have prepared COPR repository with pre-release golang(for ppc64le
only). You can enable the repository easily with command "dnf copr enable
jcajka/golang1.6" and then "dnf install golang".
To test golang on ppc64 you need to build it yourself. Download the srpm from up
mentioned COPR repo page. And build it using mock with command similar to the following
"mock -r fedora-rawhide-ppc64 --resultdir results golang-1.6.src.rpm", after the
build finishes, results(rpms to be installed) will be place in to the "results"
Please test and provide any feedback.
Also this brings up question of switching default Go compiler to golang for both
ppc64/ppc64le in Fedora 24. What are yours opinions about it?
