WoofQ 20190827 tarball uploaded

August 27, 2019 — BarryK

WoofQ is the build system used to create EasyOS from a repository of binary packages. In the case of the Pyro series, the binary packages were compiled from source (using another tool, oe-qky-src), for the Buster series, Debian 10 DEBs are used.

WoofQ is not maintained as an online version control system, instead is just uploaded as tarballs. The latest upload is dated August 27, 2019. This is the WoofQ used to build EasyOS Pyro series version 1.2 and Buster series version 2.1.

Well, not quite. There was a minor bug in the initrd, in the 'fixlayers' script, which applies fixes and sanity checking when SFS layers change. It was a typo, "cut =f ..." where it should have been "cut -f ...". That is fixed in the uploaded tarball.

WoofQ tarballs are here: 

Note, if you are using EasyOS 1.2 or 2.1, it is easy to fix that typo yourself. Just click on the 'initrd' file and it can be opened, and you can edit and change anything inside. Then, you click on 'initrd' again to update it.
