How do you create these images? Can you create a Debian Server Image please?

Thank you very much for your service providing these images! If I only could create them myself

Hello, M1 Image I will release in the next week. because I don’t have M1 board now.

I will write the method in the wiki, and you will see.

Dear all, good work :sunny: The debian image works now very well for me. ubuntu doesn’t upgade proper - so debian is now my candidate. Some things I had to fix - might be also interesting for others:

  • pulseaudio is always unhappy with the old kernel: “shared memfd open() failed: Function not implemented” => add “enable-memfd=no” to /etc/pulse/client.conf

  • Linking error when running own compiled binaries: “error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ invalid ELF header” => cd /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc => sudo ln -s => sudo ldconfig

  • set performance mode, specify the governor to use at boot. Edit /etc/default/cpufrequtils (you might need to create it if it doesn’t exist). Specify the governor with the GOVERNOR variable: valid values: userspace conservative powersave ondemand performance get them from cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors:=> GOVERNOR=performance

Cheers, Uwe
