images build kit (creating images slarm64/slackwarearm)


images build kit - creates ready-made images of slarm64/slackwarearm systems, for easy/quick installation of the system on ARMv7/ARMv8 devices.

the task includes 3 main stages:
  1. build bootloader + arm trusted firmware
  2. build the kernel with additional patches
  3. preparation of the image for recording on SDsard + optionally adding specific packages for some SOC
this project will not grow and will adhere to 3 basic goals.

the following SOC boards are currently supported.

without testing on ready-made boards, the work will be incomplete, you can take on some of the testing and together we will try to bring it to a working condition, this work was done with 4 devices Pinebook 1080, PinebookPro and Raspberry 3/4

i'm interested in ODROID-N2+, ODROID-C4, vim3, ROCK PI 4 Model C, Rock PI E, NanoPi M4V2, PINE H64 “Model B” and also new products on rockchip RK3566, RK3588

on which SOCs and boards we want to see ready-made system images?

Rock64

I would like to add that I have done extensive testing on a Rock64 (RK3328) board, and your images have always worked well on that device. There have been a few kernel quirks from upstream (audio output, etc), but the images themselves work flawlessly. Much less problematic than the Pinebook 1080P has been, by comparison. So, even if the Rock64 is not on the list of devices you are specifically interested in, you can definitely add it to the "tested and working fine" list, as most of the issues that I have noticed are device-based and not image-based (they happen on all distros).

I am still having an interesting issue on the Pinebook 1080P (not u-boot related, hopefully), but will start another thread for that one when I have eliminated a few more possibilities.

thanks, keep up the great work.

shelldweller, thanks.

I have Rock64 and I test it from time to time on this board, by the way, it's a very good board.

ODROID-C4 (S905X3) in my opinion, an interesting performance/price board, as for a desktop/server. I would like to add to the assembly, is anyone interested in testing?

Some of the Banana Pi and Orange Pi's are using the Allwinner A20 so they might be an easy clone of the Cubietruck.

Yes, I am also interested in the support for A20 (Cubietruck). I am slated to get an EOMA68 A20 card if/when they actually see the light of day. I originally crowd-funded (nearly 5 years ago now...) one of the Devuan-loaded cards (plus a mini-desktop box), but getting slarm64 loaded onto it would be ideal. I was thinking about just starting with the kernel that comes with it and copying over a rootfs for the Cubietruck, since supposedly these only work with a very specific kernel from the 3.10.y series or something like that. However, I am definitely going to see how far I can get with slarm64 on this, again if/when it finally shows up of course. The last estimate was this summer, but then again, it has been "real soon now..." for several years at least. One can dream....

yes, you just need to rewrite the bootloader of the device on which it will be used.

for ARM-v7 (aarch32) slackwarearm is used.
