build packages for ARM architecture #32
see this howto for running arm containers on x86_64 host:
This is actually not on my TODO list, but if someone is interested in this, please pick it up!
@PalinuroSec not sure what you mean by official support? It is an open source project, and I am happy to accept pull requests.
Would you want to run LBS directly on ARM hardware, or do you want to cross compile?
I had a quick go at attempting to create an LXC container on Ubuntu 16.04, along the lines of https://stgraber.org/2012/02/03/ever-wanted-an-armel-or-armhf-container-on-an-x86-machine-its-now-possible-with-lxc-in-ubuntu-precise/:
Unfortunately, the network connection was not established.
Another attempt would be to check if a newer version of qemu would work better. So you could try Ubuntu 17.10 and see if lxc containers with qemu for arm would work there.
I have no use case for ARM packages myself, so it really is up to you, if you can get it to work. If you need any advice, let me know!
