== Overview ==
This is the package list from http://performance.linaro.org, with packages already in the Fedora Aarch64 repositories removed, divided between the Fall 2014 SPO600 participants.
 
'''We're going to use this list for initial investigation, but the package(s) you work with may or may not be the ones you initially check out.'''
== To do for October 7 ==
** arm32 == aarch32 == armhf == armv7hl
** arm64 == aarch64
* To check to see if a package is available on a Fedora machine of a given architecture, use yum (e.g., <code>yum list ''name-of-package''</code>) or <code>repoquery</code>, or look up the package in the package database.

* pcre3- Available on: Fedora ~ pcre, Ubuntu ~ libpcre3, Debian ~ libpcre3. Perl Compatible RegExp Lib. Seems to exist on aarch64 as pcre.aarch64 package.* unrar-free- Not Available: Fedora, aarch64. Available: Ubuntu ~ unrar-free, Debian ~ unrar-free. Seems like chance to beat x86 performance asm with C and gcc!* vflib3- Not Available: Fedora, aarch64. Available: Ubuntu ~ vflib3, Debian ~ vflib3. Not priority at all but another interesting opportunity to beat x86 performance asm with C.* php-apc- Exists on aarch64 as: php-pecl-apcu.aarch64. Cache module for PHP 5. Multiple different platform asm used for atomics. Available on: Fedora ~ php-pecl-apc, Ubuntu ~ php-apc, Debian ~ php-apc. gcc atomics opportunity!* mysql-5.5- Includes x86 performance asm for crypto and checksum. Seems like relevant performance improvement opportunity. Available on: Fedora ~ mysql, Ubuntu ~ mysql-server-5.5, Debian ~ mysql-server-5.5.* fwts- Firmware test suite, marked on linaro list as being "already worked on".* llvm-3.1- Seems to exist on aarch64 as "llvm.aarch64" package. Exists on aarch64 as llvm.aarch64 in Fedora 21. Nothing mentioned in regards to performance.* smlsharp- May have a source file that needs to be completely re-written in C. Also optional x86 performance asm for atomics and checksum performance, opportunity for C and gcc optimizations. Only exists in Ubuntu, not on aarch64.* mpfr4- Exists on aarch64 ~ "mpfr.aarch64". C Floating-point math lib, contains A32 asm code, but no aarch64 asm, for what reason the asm is included I am unsure right now(probably performance). Available on: Fedora ~ mpfr, Ubuntu ~ libmpfr4, Debian ~ libmpfr4. Could be great opportunity to learn gcc floating-point optimizations!* gccxml- Doesn't seem difficult to port to aarch64. Not a high priority as not used a lot. Available on: Fedora, Ubuntu, and Debian ~ gccxml.* puf- Low priority for porting. Contains trivial asm for bitops performance, opportunity for C and gcc optimizations. Not Available: Fedora.* insserv - Boot sequence organizer. Doesn't seem like a priority to port.

* mozjs – included in Fedora20. The latest version is 17.0.0-8. fc20. Patch for [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/mozjs17/sources/ aahrch64] implemented on 06 Jan 2014. Aarch64-64k-page patch added 06 Jun 2014.
===Linpei Fan===* ruby1.9.1 – included in Fedora20. Aarch64 support current from version [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/ruby/changelog/ 2.0.0.195-8+]. * blcrxmds – not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.* grub2* php5binfmtc - not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.* libinnodb* ocamlrheolef -shanot present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64. * libhmsbeaglearibas - not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.* maude* rtaixen-api-libs – couldn’t find it in the Fedora, Ubuntu or Debian package database. However, I did come across a discussion of porting it over to be compatible with arm on the xen [http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-api/2013-05/msg00108.html list].* kamailio* gesftpserverbunny – not sure if I found the right package in the [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/bunny Fedora] package database, however, according to the [https://code.google.com/p/bunny-the-fuzzer/ upstream] website, this packages use has been deprecated in favor of [https://code.google.com/p/american-fuzzy-lop/ american-fuzzy-lop].* bsign* openjdknwchem – Although the [http://performance.linaro.org/find/ Linaro] package page says that there isn’t a version available for Fedora, searching for it on the [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/nwchem/changelog/ Fedora] package database, I believe that arm support has been added as of version 6.3.2-11 which seems to be the latest version. It seems as if they were excluding arm from version 6.3.2-5.
* eigen2 – according to [http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=163849 this], it seems as if this package has already been ported to work with the arm architecture.
* vo-aacenc – Not present in Fedora. The Ubuntu package database indicates that it’s not arm compatible. The Debian package database, however, shows that this package is being [https://packages.debian.org/search?arch=arm64&searchon=names&keywords=vo-aacenc worked] on. There is no current release that is stable.
===Omid Djahanpour===* mozjs* ruby1sbcl – present in Fedora and seems like this package is compatible with arm, according to the upstream [http://sourceforge.net/p/sbcl/mailman/message/32585701/ website].9However, there seems to be some minor complications when building it from source.1* xmds* binfmtc* rheolef* aribas* xen-api-libs* bunny* nwchem* eigen2* vo-aacenc* sbcl
