Build packages for Ubuntu's lpia architecture

Description

Ubuntu is currently pushing their "lpia" architecture (which is really just i386 specifically targeted at Intel Atom processors) for low-powered architectures, such as netbooks. In particular, the Ubuntu Netbook Remix ( http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-netbook), while available for all architectures is primarily distributed for lpia.

It would be nice to provide lpia builds of Debathena for users running UNR.

This will involve expanding our build tools to know that different distro releases can have different architectures. Looking back at history at the tools from before we eliminated Sarge might be a good starting point.

Change History

Anders correctly points out that UNR was switched to i386 after Hardy, and that Ubuntu seems to want to get rid of the lpia architecture in the long term (see  LP:366025).

I think this is still a valid bug, so long as lpia is still in the Ubuntu archives, but we'll keep it at low priority and milestoned for The Distant Future.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

I think we've gotten all of one request for this ever, so it's not really worth our effort at this point.

Not to mention the fact that they're dropping lpia for Lucid.
