Tingbot SD card build system

Build Status

This repo builds two products:

  • tingbot-os.deb: a deb package that can be installed onto Raspbian Jessie to create the 'Tingbot OS'.
  • disk.img: an SD card image with tingbot-os.deb preinstalled, ready for flashing to an SD card. This image also includes some extra stuff specific to an initial install - a specific build of SDL, and a program for expanding the SD card partition on first boot. See build.sh.

tingbot-os.deb

This file is used to upgrade an existing Tingbot. It's downloaded by tbupgrade.

disk.img

The base is the Raspbian distribution, on which Tingbot-specific stuff is added. The image is booted inside an ARM emulator, using the vm-setup, vm-build, and vm-cleanup scripts. The build.sh script runs on the Pi, which is where tingbot-os.deb installed.

Requirements

  • qemu (and expect on linux)

    brew install qemu (MacOSX)
    sudo apt-get install qemu expect (Debian/Ubuntu)

Usage

Just run make build. The first run might take a while, as the raspbian image must be downloaded. Subsequent runs will be faster.
