The current Linux standalone for ARM, used on armv5tel with Debian stretch, does not work:

$ cd git-annex.linux/
$ ./runshell 
$ git annex
error: git-annex died of signal 4
$ git-annex
Illegal instruction

I downloaded the arm tarball, unpacked and did as above. Same if do as above as root or use the alternative way of modifying the PATH, as suggested in the installation instructions. The CPU is Feroceon 88FR131 rev 1 (v5l).

Is there a way of getting a working pre-built git-annex on such a system?

Thanks in advance!

I've updated the builder to use the fixed ghc and the haskell libraries built with it, so this is fixed in the git-annex armel autobuild. (Not yet in the release tarball but that will happen after the next git-annex release.) --Joey
