Is there a list where I can prefilter architecture:arm and all ported packages appear? Up to now I just searched by trial and error, e.g. entered the name of the package (in packages.ubuntu.com) I am interested in, and then confirmed that the package is available for the arm-platform or not. But that takes a lot of time for more than a few packages!

  • launchpad.net/ubuntu/saucy/armhf might help a little. Commented Mar 8, 2014 at 16:50
  • Thanks, unfortunately I get nearly always a timeout error: Launchpad.net Timeout error Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad. We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience. Trying again in a couple of minutes might work.

  • Yeah, I got the same error. Sometimes, refreshing the page works, but it seems that that doesn't work in this case. Commented Mar 11, 2014 at 15:48

Check out http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/<release>/main/binary-<architecture>/Packages.bz2 (there're different architectures for ARM - armhf, arm64, armel, etc. - and not all might be available for every release, focus on the LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM for further infos), e.g. http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/trusty/main/binary-armhf/Packages.bz2. You'll find a list of packages which are available through apt-get if you add

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports <release> main

to your /etc/apt/sources.list. The list isn't in handy format, but decompressing and opening it with a text editor and using its search function will help.
