3builddistro now supports ARM build to SD

May 06, 2012 — BarryK
This completes the basic support of building for an ARM board target with Woof.

I have modified the script '3builddistro' to create an SD card image. This uses a skeleton image, as I described earlier:

3builddistro writes the skeleton image to an SD card, then populates it with kernel, modules, and Puppy filesystem. Then a xz-compressed image file is created that can be distributed for others to use.

Good news, as xz compression is being used, the compressed image file is currently only 88MB. That is my Ubuntu Lucid Lynx based build, with all of the usual applications, including SeaMonkey.
