Is it a Server Image or DE? Just to confirm.
I also have some concern over the size of the img file and also 32gb sd requirement.
Did you make image of the sd card you used? If so then can you shrink it to remove the empty space? As 4GB for a distro is quite big, Actually I would like to try it but the file size is quite big for me.
Also a guide on how to flash it will be helpful for normal users.
hi, the trgmii-setting in 4.14 is basicly wrong, but with right config (trgmii for gmac0 and rgmii for gmac1) packets on gmac 0 are damaged so it is defined this way in dts…just drop this “feature” from your list
for size of image:
remove cache-files (paketmanager)
write a 0-file (/dev/zero) till your partition is full and remove it (best is to do it inside the image not in running system)
I have reduced the 1.6GB image package - kernel sources dumped for download separately, zero unused FS space. This is in line with the Gentoo basic system philosophy for further software installation.
Ultimately, I’m going to create a router with shaping, squid - censorship for underage users, NAS, DLNA, samba - hence the size of the file system. (Actually, I am currently using rootFS on HDD myself, because my EMMC is dead). Maybe something else will come out during use.
My goal is not to play with the kernel, but to configure specific functions on BPI-R2: NAS, routing, QoS … etc. And the kernel 4.14 in the description at https://github.com/frank-w/BPI-R2-4.14 has the most useful functions.
Btw A better approach in Gentoo would be to write an ebuild to do
./build.sh help OK
./build.sh config OK (*)
./build.sh importconfig OK
./build.sh install OK
./build.sh pack - Fail?
“./build.sh: line 589: …/SD/BPI-ROOT//etc/modprobe.d/cryptodev.conf: No such fil e or directory”
./build.sh uenv - Fail - open new file??
The graphics ncurses menuconfig crumble, when I give the usual “make menuconfig” it looks much better. Why?
