Volumio 2 on NanoPi NEO

Postby gkkpch » Mon Oct 16 2017 07:43

hi,
nice to know you are working on it.
You don‘t need an armv8 rootfs and applications, armv7 on top of an aarch64 kernel will work just as well.
Have a look at the build script for odroid c2, pine64 and rock64 (wip).
We will probably remove the armv8 recipes as it proved they are not necessary at all.

Why don't you want to use Armv8? I successfully built all modules for rootfs exclude volumio-init(remote)-updater which code sources not avaliable.

Because we discovered armv8 offers us no advantage in speed or whatever.
Just extra work for maintenance, supporting the different platforms is complicated enough for us, therefore we decided to stick with armv7 for aarch64 platforms (something many other OS developers have done, look at OMV as an example).
Currently we have no intention to build and support our packages for other than arm, armv7 and x86, volumio_updater included.
I'm really sorry to see all the work you did on volumioconfig.sh and the updated packages, but nevertheless hope you won't give up ;)

Actually, I think this can be a valuable addition, and if you pursuit the goal, we can help you.
However, really, we just can't support another architecture for our packages.
So we can progress only if we use armv7 rootfs, which IMHO is totally doable. What do you think?

I'll try to create an working image for NanoPi-neo2 with armv7 rootfs. Now I built image without errors, but I have difficulties in writing the correct boot.cmd, because I have no experiences in this level. I try modify original boot.cmd from FriendlyArm but without success yet.
