Prebuilt raspberry pi 3 image #1
first off: As a former webos dev during the palm pre and palm pre 2 days, I have to pay my respects. The new architecture looks amazing, and is really well thought-through. Enact, wayland, mojo, pretty much everything looks very good and is very well engineered.
Anyways, I wanted to ask whether there's a prebuilt image for Raspberries so that people can get started easier when they don't have 100GB available?
It also might make sense to have some prebuilt libraries available in different architectures, using a lazy-cache mechanism similar to ninja or others - so that e.g. chromium does not have to be built from scratch (assuming it takes a lot of space, memory and compile time; currently still digging through the tutorial).
Actually yocto provides shared state change (https://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/current/ref-manual/ref-manual.html#shared-state-cache) for fast build. Unfortunately we don't provide the shared state cache yet. I will discuss your suggestion internally and reply soon.
@cookiengineer, if it helps you in any way for the time being: webos-image-raspberrypi3.rootfs.rpi-sdimg. It certainly toke a while for my laptop (fast Quad core with HT, fresh Ubuntu VM with 24GBs of RAM assigned and the disks split over 2 NVM-e disks) to build the entire project. I didn't check the time, but I would estimate the total build time to be around 3.5 hours.
(Pssst: "homeserver" so depending on your location the speed may or may not be great)
