The Void Linux live image maker
Shell Makefile
Latest commit 9800862 Nov 29, 2016 @CMB CMB committed with chneukirchen mkimage.sh: fix sfdisk usage for multiple arches.
In the case where we have two partitions, boot and root, the
root partition needs to start at sector (2048 + bootfs_size_in_sectors),
not at $BOOT_FSSIZE.
Using $BOOT_FSSIZE as the start tells sfdisk to try to start the
/ partition in the middle of /boot, which it refuses to do.
Leave start blank, and sfdisk uses the first unallocated sector as
the start of /, which happens to be sector 2048 + bootfs_size_in_sectors.

I suspect this fixes #81.

The Void Linux image/live/rootfs maker and installer

This repository contains utilities for Void Linux:

  • installer (The Void Linux el-cheapo installer for x86)
  • mklive (The Void Linux live image maker for x86)

  • mkimage (The Void Linux image maker for ARM platforms)

  • mkrootfs (The Void Linux rootfs maker for ARM platforms)

Dependencies

  • xbps>=0.45
  • qemu-user-static binaries (for mkrootfs)

Usage

Type

$ make

and then see the usage output:

$ ./mklive.sh -h
$ ./mkrootfs.sh -h
$ ./mkimage.sh -h

Examples

Build a native live image with runit and keyboard set to 'fr':

# ./mklive.sh -k fr

Build an i686 (on x86_64) live image with some additional packages:

# ./mklive.sh -a i686 -p 'vim rtorrent'

Build an x86_64 musl live image with packages stored in a local repository:

# ./mklive.sh -a x86_64-musl -r /path/to/host/binpkgs

See the usage output for more information :-)
