Debian Image Builder (4B, 3B+, RPi0W)

I've been using these scripts in one way or another for over a year now and recently decided to Github them. The master branch has links to sample images you can download and all the other branches house the scripts, files and other bits.

Since i usually run my Pis and other boards headless, that's how the scripts are set to build and what the images provided are. Running 'sudo tasksel' can just as easily get you a desktop on a Pi4/3B+ if that's your needs.

Well, just thought I'd share and I hope someone finds them useful. ~Cheers

To much has changed to list, but as for what is now supported.

  • Debian (headless/desktop)
    Devuan (headless)
    Ubuntu (headless)
Images now use UUID and PARTUUID.
First boot checks and grows partitions on - mmcblk0, mmcblk1 and sda.
Armv7l has been dropped, but can still be built using the legacy branch.
The builder now uses make commands and has a menu interface.
Branches: Debian, Devuan, Legacy and Ubuntu.

Sample images can now be found under Release.

Added two new branches: Xfce and Musicbox

Xfce - Unfortunately I have been unable to get fbturbo to work in aarch64, which for sure limits this branches usage. If anyone has any ideas or insights on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Musicbox - Turns the Pi into a headless Pandora Music Player / Bluetooth Audio Receiver. This branch targets all variants of the Raspberry Pi 3, but should also work "over kill" on the 4B.

You can find already baked images for these and other variants under the release section of the hub.
