As promised some more info on the Nethserver-arm 7.5.1804 development (image)
Until now the focus has been arm32, simply because the bigger audience. Experience from the past learned arm64 (aarch64) is quite easy to do. Proposal is to merge arm64 bit in at the first alpha release
Contribute and proposed workflow:
In the Software Center there are (“Everything” not counted) 5 tabs:
- Base System
- Base in Development
- Firewall in Development
- Needs Work!!
Goal is to get everything out of the “in Development” tabs and as you probably guested:
if it’s in “Needs Work!!” there are already known issues.
If you to contribute you can adopt one or more modules and give them a good shake / tests:
- Does install without errors (log, and systemclt -f while installing are my friends here)
- Does function as expected
- How does it behave (memory usage, cpu usage) also over a period of days.
Mail2: The filter-module (clamav anti-virus) is more embedded in the new mail 2 module, and imho pi’s do not have enough RAM to run clamav. The odroid HC1 with 2G it’s seems just to hold on on it’s teeth.
Nextcloud: Did not take on Nextcloud due to php7 requirement and unfamiliarity with it. There are some serious people working on php 7.2 for centos-arm32 and therefor do not think it’s impossible. If there is demand and someone adopts it for testing we can try to port it to arm32 bit.
AD accounts provider: technically possible not feasible. Did not take on the nethserver-sssd module and therefor the button is still there. It throws an error without harm done.
Get in touch:
You can ping me here, and in the coming days the arm-bugtracker will be updated (its 2 years old )
Enjoy and happy to hear from you
