64bit Buildroot operating system and the Pi3

Sun Nov 26, 2017 10:15 pm

Hi there,

Has anyone tried using the Pi configs in the buildroot repo ?

https://github.com/buildroot/buildroot.git

Like this one :

https://github.com/buildroot/buildroot/ ... _defconfig


I am interested to hear about experiences and gotchyas ?

Check the Ultra 2 sound card - use our shop instead of Amazon Europe (Amazon USA is live).

Believe me, such things will never work!
And if you got them working anyhow, after pulling out your hair, someone will came a few weeks later, changing a few lines or few variables in the hiddenst config you ever can assume (because he think he's important and MUST do that), and you'll have to start again. And later again, and so on until end of time ...
For example: I've followed this: http://ltekieli.com/buildroot-with-rasp ... e-and-how/ and make all simply ends in

Code: Select all

support/scripts/check-kernel-headers.sh: 38: support/scripts/check-kernel-headers.sh: /tmp/check-headers.z6iPz2: Permission denied
Of course this file doesn't exist? So what would they like to say to me? I didn't know, and me be, I never want to know it anymorel?
I remember good old linux-times when things where easy, and you're able to understand what's going on.
But today it's better to go outside and see how nice nature is, or to do other useful things!

A: What does the command 'cat /dev/urandom', can you tell me please?
B: Yeah, that's very simple: It feeds your cat with radioactive material!
