# Setup clang (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
# Building chromium with gcc is an uphill battle as the devs only test with clang.
# It is possible to set up a local clang compiler with the exact revision chromium expects by doing the following:

# Check out LLVM (rev 344066)
svn checkout --force https://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm/trunk@344066 llvm

# Check out Clang (rev 344066)
svn checkout --force https://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/cfe/trunk@344066 llvm/tools/clang

# Check out compiler-rt (rev 344066)
svn checkout --force https://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/compiler-rt/trunk@344066 llvm/compiler-rt

# Make build directory and build
mkdir llvm_build
cd llvm_build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD="PowerPC" -G "Unix Makefiles" ../llvm
make -j64 # Replace with no. of threads in your box

# Work around libatomic problems under Clang
# See https://github.com/cquery-project/cquery/issues/382 for a related problem in a different project
cd /usr/lib/powerpc64le-linux-gnu
ln -s libatomic.so.1 libatomic.so

  • Notes about QT WebEngine by Sharkcz
    • patches mentioned here can be used for building QT WebEngine (5.11.2 from http://code.qt.io/qt/qtwebengine.git), chromium 69-based
    • had to set "use_jumbo_build = false" to workaround a build issue in V8, somehow it converted mul into mulld and div into divd, leading to errors like " kExprF32Mulld not defined"
    • have problems building ffmpeg, so the final link failed
      • seems the steps for ffmpeg are (because generate_gn reads the results of a build, needs clang in the default config => modified to use gcc, clang causes issues with missing symbols
        • build_ffmpeg.py linux ppc64
        • generate_gn.py
        • copy_config.sh
    • https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/File:Qtwebengine.patch - for WebEngine itself
    • https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/File:Webengine-chromium.patch - for the bundled Chromium (**Note:** this contains an outdated version of the 0005-sandbox-linux-seccomp-bpf-Add-ppc64-syscall-stub patch above which does not work -- you must use the updated one dated 21-Sep from above or you will get runtime linker failures)
      • rename third_party/ffmpeg/ffmpeg_generated.gni.ppc64 to ffmpeg_generated.gni - this is a preparation for packaging work, ideally we would need a complete ffmpeg_generated.gni regenerated for all arches
      • PushAllRegisters() needs a real implementation
    • how to use
      • apply the patchsets
      • qmake-qt5
      • make
      • wait a while and then enjoy :-)
    • https://src.fedoraproject.org/fork/sharkcz/rpms/qt5-qtwebengine/commits/ppc is my work in progress on the Fedora qt5-qtwebengine package
    • https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=29540352 is temporary location for the result
