Still working on the NS-arm 7.5.1804 and running in to some topics/issues I’d like to discus
We talked about the status of the unofficial epel for arm-32bit before; but as stated getting the mirror of this nice and clean is time consuming and quite honest not a pleasant task to do.
My proposition is we work on a alpha release which researches directly in to the unofficial epel,
for the last RC we build up the mirror and if all is well we go to final. This would speed up development and getting test images out.
Simple wifi (WPA-Supliant) module.
Need help for a for a Simple wifi (WPA-Supliant) module. I can make some action scripts around wpa-cli to set a wifi connection up. However if we wat something in http-admin i miss the php skills. @denis.robel You did some work on hostapd, could this be a better route than wpa-cli?
Would pushing some arm specific patches “upstream” x64_86 be accepted?:
Base Dashboard Hardware info
Most arm devices we are targeting now do not have a bios, they are device-tree based. hence /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/ is not present. A rather small patch from @dz00te would clean it up enough.
Just one if elif else and adding two configuration files would do the job.
Not important rather a small frustration of me: building on relatively slow hardware, I want to propose to keep the chroot between building he sRPM and the RPM. This would speed up a lot! Keep in mind the builddir is the chroot is cleaned-up by mock even if you opt for --no-clean, it just keeps the chroot…
Disable local AD option for arm-32bit maybe 64-bit. Did not thought about how to do this, it would imply greying out a button is arch = arm.
Dropping smartmontools dependency for nethserver-base
(Again) Most arm devices we are targeting don’t have SMART-enabled diskdrives…
Dropping dependency for nethserver-base implies moving all smartmonitor parts from nethserver-base to nethserver-smartd. nethserver-smartd is a mysterious package, it just holds the default-db part of the service. Why? And could we shift parts (if there are any) from base to smartd?
