First build of Pyro64

May 10, 2017 — BarryK
Quirky built from packages compiled in OpenEmbedded, is codenamed "Pyro64". I have just done the very first build, version 0.1, and get a desktop -- and some bugs, which is to be expected.

The file is 297MB, and it has big apps, including LibreOffice, Kodi, Gimp, Pidgin and Firefox.

Most of the bugs look fixable, but Kodi displays without any text, and after a brief google, no solution has jumped out at me.
It is a common problem, but there does not seem to be any definitive fix.

Fixing Kodi is number one on the to-do list.

What I might do is install the devx pet, and have a go at compiling the latest version.
