Any Chimaera Rpi3/4 builds in the pipeline?

Would really like an upgrade of the original CLI images, if possible, the Beowulf ones have been working great. smile

Re: Any Chimaera Rpi3/4 builds in the pipeline?

Assuming you have a Pi4 and an extra SDCARD you can produce them yourself without much effort.

Go here, download the pre-made Hirsute IMG and write it to said SD. From there follow the instructions on the README.

When creating an IMG you have 3 options, but only two will probably be of interest. That being make config and make admin, depending on which you choose, fill in the information of choice and create the userdata file.

You can speed up the process by pulling a pre-made kernel, using make helper.

So for example, if you wanted a quick rpi4 img... Create the userdata file and run: make 2711; make rootfs; make image

I'm not in the know of when there will be an official release, plus I'm still waiting to find out what the official sources.list file will look like.

Thanks for your response, if there will be some images coming, I can wait for them, & much appreciate it if you do make them. smile

They need testing: https://github.com/pyavitz/binary/releases/tag/images

I also included support for the Zero 2 W, but as I don't own the board yet, I'm not sure it boots and if it does, how well it works.

Here to tell you that the  rpi-devuan-chimaera-5.10.76-ext4-2021-10-30.img.xz  image worked a charm for my RaspberryPi Zero W stick.
I had to comment out the hardline lan eth0 stanza before the wifi worked, but after that it worked well.
Kudos to you on providing those images. Thanks much.

I tried your rpi-img-builder, but it refused to install/run on my Ceres box, said 'The OS you are running is not supported'.   
I'll install Chimaera and try again.  I'd be good to generate my own images with your tool to help.

I'm not sure why eth0 would be interfering with it, considering it doesn't have an ethernet port, but I'm happy you got it working.

As for the builder, because of the different versions of GCC and compilers it currently supports and will support in the future, I ended up moving it over to Ubuntu as the Host. Debian and Devuan stable for example only support GCC-9/10. The builder currently supports GCC-8/9/10 and by the start of next year will also support GCC-11 and CLang-13. Basically, Ubuntu unfortunately provides more options.

If need be docker is an option?

You can also install depends manually on Debian and Devuan, but just know certain options won't be available to you. Such as Clang and anything gcc-8 related if building on Bullseye or Chimaera.

Re: Any Chimaera Rpi3/4 builds in the pipeline?

The builders have now been updated to work on both Debian and Ubuntu. Although I haven't added Devuan as a supported Distro, I see no reason why reviewing the package list and installing manually wouldn't work.
