I am wishing to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet computer to LineageOS, according to the instructions given here: Install LineageOS on mondrianwifi | LineageOS Wiki. I was expecting there to be a pre-built ROM to install, however in the section Installing LineageOS from recovery the first innocent looking line states:
- Build a LineageOS installation package.
where Build points to: Build for mondrianwifi | LineageOS Wiki which is a web page of detailed instructions for building the LineageOS installation package for my tablet computer. It includes a list of required packages for the build:
bc bison build-essential ccache curl flex g++-multilib gcc-multilib git gnupg gperf imagemagick lib32ncurses5-dev lib32readline-dev lib32z1-dev liblz4-tool libncurses5 libncurses5-dev libsdl1.2-dev libssl-dev libxml2 libxml2-utils lzop pngcrush rsync schedtool squashfs-tools xsltproc zip zlib1g-dev
However these are package names for Debian (Ubuntu) based systems and several do not exist by that name in the Manjaro repositories or AUR. I presume equivalents exist by different names and I also guess it may be a lot of effort to find all the equivalents for a successful build.
Would that be the case?
Hence would it be better to seek another way to build a LineageOS installation package, perhaps by installing Ubuntu to a spare hard disk (that’s all I have), though it seems ridiculous to have go to that extent than build on Manjaro?
[This is my first venture into building a ROM installation package for a tablet computer, so I have no prior experience of this.]
