EasyOS advancing to Kirkstone-series

December 05, 2022 — BarryK

That's the current intention anyway. The Dunfell-series started in early 2020, and I am running into problems with libraries etc. being too old. The OpenEmbedded/Yocto Kirkstone version was released in May 2022, and is an LTS version, now on the fifth iteration (4.0.5):

I have been working on the Kirkstone-series very intensely for the last 5-6 days, to the point where my eyes were giving up. So, will slow down for awhile get outdoors.

Anyway, it is looking very good indeed. gcc is version 11.3.0, glibc is 2.35, libreoffice is and chromium is 106.0.5249.119

...yes, even chromium has cross-compiled successfully. And I see on the 'meta-browser' github site that they have already bumped the version. Those guys are keeping chromium up-to-date, and have neglected firefox, which is back at 68.9.0esr. The firefox build failed and I posted a report:

Lots of package build recipes still to fix, at least 4-5 more days, then intend to put the new "meta-quirky" onto github as project "oe-qky-kirkstone".

I am just a cog in the large machine that is OE/Yocto, with my "meta-quirky" layer that has a couple of hundred package build recipes created by me. There are so many other layers, that one puts together according to what one wants to compile and for what target:

...for example, I am using "meta-office", "meta-browser" and "meta-clang", as well as the core layers.
