XS repackaged for ARM

It was pretty satisfying to type “yum install xs-pkgs”, and have 236 packages load onto my Fedora 17 rootfs without an error. It seems like a small milestone. (That’s not to say that it all will function properly — that’s the next issue).

There were about 20 RPMs that needed to be repackaged for ARM, not all of them needed to be recompiled for the new processor architecture (some were python, or html, scripts).  At this point, I’m about to take off on vacation for a month.  When I get back, I’ll start testing/debugging. The new packages are available on the web.
