Hi all (@dz00te),
Who can test and give feedback on some RPI 2/3 images, this are the first (thus very alpha!) created with the RootFS Build Factory. This tool is also used by Centos Arm Special Interest group;
In short it parses a board/distro template to bash scripts who creates an IMG file on the local disk, partitions- and mounts it and then installs packages form the centos / nethserver-arm repository’s.
The challenge we need to solve is how can we create a best possible “works out of the box” experience.
The pristine images are never booted and start at first boot with a “signal-event system-init”.
This takes about 5 minutes (large depends on the speed of the SD card) and during this time the pi in not responsive. Even worse: during network configuration you lose ssh connectivity.
This are pristine images, so notice at first boot it takes a while before al is setup!
The only way to see what is happening is to connect a monitor, login and
Here are images who are booted up (just after creation) as a systemd-nspawn container to run system-init. They boot up in about a minute.
This is not a good solution and prone to cause issues, so give me your thoughts!
