raspberry pi3 chimaera install "from scratch"

Hello,

In the SD-card-images directory, i do not see a device-specific file for rpi3 while the mini.iso applied to the flash drive, does not run raspberry - USB Mass Storage Boot set but nothing happens, no vision on the hdmi connector. It is possible to install devuan on rpi3 this way?

Regards,

I use the ones here - https://arm-files.devuan.org/

Unzip it, then image write it to your card, (I use dd).

Yes, such a procedure works (i checked it before writing this post, specifically devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_arm64_rpi3.img.zip on pendrive) but such a system is already profiled in some sense. "from scratch" option as above is not available for this platform?

Debian has a version of their installation available if you want to go down that road. wink

https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port

Otherwise,

This hasn't been updated for a year and does not appear to work on Devuan Daedalus:

All requirements installed, I think:

$ sudo apt-get install curl git wget qemu-user-static build-essential rsync gcc-arm-none-eabi gcc-multilib lib32z1 u-boot-tools device-tree-compiler lzop dosfstools vboot-utils vboot-kernel-utils libftdi-dev libfdt-dev swig libpython3-dev bc bison flex libssl-dev zsh sudo cgpt parted xz-utils

Any other options?

Edit: I'm looking for the equivalent of a mini.iso for the Pi 3A+, or if it's a complete system image one without any cruft (no Xorg, XFCE etc). Also: trust is an issue. Debian? Might as well go with Raspbian then. It's Systemd I want rid of.

Re: raspberry pi3 chimaera install "from scratch"

I have also built full ISOs for the Pi. BUT, you will need the UEFI firmware for that model, and boot it via UEFI. You can find the ISO on the arm-files website under the arm64-installer tab.

the firmware can be found here: https://github.com/pftf/RPi3

also note: after installation, you will need to use the recovery mode to reinstall GRUB from the removable-media path, if installing to a USB (Which i HIGHLY recommend so as to not fry out the SD card where your UEFI BIOS is held)

That's all, folks.
