I have been thinking about this again, now that the pinebook/u-boot issue seems to be over (thanks again for that). I just had to reinstall a Slackware64 x86 system and it is giving me a chance to keep track of the third party packages I "need" as they arise. So far, here is what I have built, including dependencies:
  • LibreOffice
    apache-ant
    perl-Archive-zip
  • bleachbit
    python-scanidr (optional)
  • claws-mail
    libetpan
  • clawsker
    perl-cairo
    perl-extutils-depends
    perl-extutils-pkgconfig
    perl-glib
    perl-gtk2
    perl-pango
  • fslint
  • mpv
    libass
    libplacebo
    lua
    mujs
  • ncdu
  • p7zip
  • smplayer
  • transmission


There will definitely be more, but this is what seemed necessary to me on a fresh install, and this is what came out of the first round.

Cool! There are some nice packages there...

On a side note, I am getting a '403 Forbidden' error on the subdomain http://dl.fail.pp.ua/ , just FYI.

Anywhere else to grab the rootfs? Just in case...

Maybe I can at least mirror the rootfs images on my server. Worth a shot perhaps.

Mine started doing that a few years ago, leading me to stop using it as my home server.
I tried to use it again some months ago, I think using your image, but while the setup went fine it again froze randomly at some point. It's now in a drawer, unused.

on the kernel 5.4.55 and with lowered frequencies of memory initialization in u-boot, the work stabilized, only the sata ssd disk of usb was transferred to rock pi 4.

it will be a pity if it stops working, good board for its time.

(lurking quietly here…)

I thought the logical move for something like slarm64 that's trying to cope with so many SBCs would be to open a github project, add the stuff there, instead of searching one interminable thread.

slarm64 is not about SBC, this is about slackwar64 under aarch64.
slarm64 general purpose system for any ARMv8 SoC.
SBCs are images build kit and it's all submitted on gitlab

Great. You should put that link in your sigfile

EDIT: what's the .zst format? Another Archiver?

xfce packages

I tried building an Xfce image using the script for the first time in a long time recently. I usually just build the base image and then build up the package sets from there manually. However, I wanted to automate things a bit more, so I opted to build the Xfce image on a Pinebook build, and also a Rock64 build, and I ran into the same error.

The package l/mozjs60 needs to be upgraded in the config/packages/packages-xfce.conf file to l/mozjs68. Otherwise the script crashes when it cannot find the missing package.

Even then, with that fixed, still got the following error on the Pinebook build:

Code:
sed: can't read /home/user/projects/images_build_kit/build/source/slarm64-current-aarch64-xfce-rootfs-20200628-5.7.14-pinebook-build-20200810/etc/inittab:  No such file or directory
Something to do with the initrd, perhaps? Just a guess...

Now I just need to learn git workflow so that I can submit these changes directly that way. There is always something new to learn.

when building xfce, base must also be selected, based on it and xfce is built.

shelldweller thanks,
updated package l/mozjs68
