Talk:DIY Fully working Alpine Linux for Allwinner and Other ARM SOCs
I'm currently trying the procedure to install AL on orange-pi-pc.
I'm cross compiling from a debian box.
Compilation of kernel (linux-sunxi) fails with
$ make zImage CHK include/linux/version.h CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h make: 'include/generated/mach-types.h' is up to date. CALL scripts/checksyscalls.sh CHK include/generated/compile.h GEN .version CHK include/generated/compile.h UPD include/generated/compile.h CC init/version.o LD init/built-in.o LD .tmp_vmlinux1 arm-linux-gnueabihf-ld: no machine record defined arch/arm/kernel/built-in.o: In function `kretprobe_trampoline': /srv/r_and_d/linux-sunxi/arch/arm/kernel/kprobes.c:379: undefined reference to `trampoline_handler' Makefile:875: recipe for target '.tmp_vmlinux1' failed make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1
I'm trying to search any clue on the net to fix this but nothing so far :(
I went the alternate way and build the kernel with armbian toolbox.
I'm now a happy Alpine Linux user on orange-pi-pc. It took be about 7 hours to complete "setup-alpine" starting from scratch.
A point of attention is the size of initramfs!
I learned a lot about arm ecosystem. Thanks a lot for this great introduction!
started to prepare an Alpine Linux SD card for the orange-pi-pc
- compile kernel from source (kernel-sunxi)
- compile kernel modules from source
- compile u-boot from source
- download rootfs from alpinelinux.org
- extract initramfs
- extract modloop
- extract SPL
- extract dtb
- extract kernel
- extract modules
- extract firmware
- adapt and generate initramfs
- adapt and generate modloop
- prepare u-boot macro (boot.cmd)
- generate u-boot macro (boot.scr)
- flash spl
- flash u-boot
- partition SD
- format new partition
- mount new partition
- copy kernel, initramfs, modloop, dtp, and u-boot macro
- put SD in orange-pi-pc
- power on
