Some days ago I pushed out the 18.06 version of the manjaro-release package, making all running systems go to version 18.06.
A new Minimal image is available for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3.
Biggest changes to this image include:
- New way images are being created!
- Removed the entire
base-develpackage group. People needed it to compile stuff, can install it back with
sudo pacman -S base-devel.
What about other devices?
Right now, I have testing images available for the Odroid-C1 and the Odroid-C2, but the latest ones does not even boot.
I need to figure out why, and soon, as I want to have these devices supported.
We don’t support any armv6h devices, as that would require extra manpower and a bigger server hosting the repository.
The plan for Manjaro-ARM right now, is to release new minimal images for supported devices, each month. A snapshot, like Arch Linux x86_64 does it.
Other editions might get released often, but it depends on the maintainers of those editions.
This should become easier soon, hopefully, as I have started working on our own
manjaro-arm-tools to generate images from your desktop PC.
The new tools will be used until Manjaro Architect supports our ARM platform and will consist of:
buildarmimgwhich will generate a .img and a .zip containing that .img.
buildarmpkgwhich will be used to create a package for an ARM platform.
- Profiles to be used when creating the images, so you can create an image for minimal, mate, lxqt or others with a simple command. The profiles will contain all the settings and changed config files needed to give the edition the look and feel of Manjaro-ARM.
