Need an Arch Hurd image

As discussed at FOSDEM's sr.ht meetup, I can help with the Fedora (rawhide) images.

~sircmpwn 1 year, 7 months ago

Excellent! The issue is with rawhide support at the moment. I have added (broken) rawhide rigging to the builds.sr.ht repo:


The easiest way to reproduce the issue is to submit that .build.yml to builds.sr.ht with release: rawhide. If you play around with this and can get something working, a patch would be super great. Cheers!

~fnux 1 year, 7 months ago

I was able to fix the GPG issue but there's a broken dependency issue in rawhide (most likely due to the recent mass rebuild) for one of the package we want to install. I will fix the problem from the Fedora side, you can expect a patch in a few days.

Zig project is about to have a use case for OpenBSD builds: https://github.com/ziglang/zig/pull/1921

~sircmpwn 1 year, 7 months ago

Cool. I'm almost done with NetBSD and can probably start working on OpenBSD in 2 weeks.

~oranenj 1 year, 4 months ago

Have you made progress with OpenBSD? I got struck by a strange mood and cobbled together something that can build a QEMU-bootable disk image of OpenBSD on OpenBSD, but I haven't yet tested it with builds.sr.ht itself since I don't have it set up locally.

I'm still figuring out a suitable workflow for collaboration. :P

~sircmpwn 1 year, 4 months ago

Hey ~oranenj! The FreeBSD image is pretty stable and the NetBSD image would be done if it weren't for one issue, but I haven't spent any time on OpenBSD yet. I'd love your help in making it available on builds.sr.ht. Can you stop by #sr.ht on irc.freenode.net to chat?

~sircmpwn 1 year, 4 months ago

OpenBSD is now live. Thanks ~oranenj!

Hi there! I see NetBSD here mentioned too, but it is not yet in the compatibility list. Is it possible to set up a build using it now, or not yet? Thanks for an amazing service!

By the way, you might want to add Haiku OS in the TODO list. I am not particularly using it, but surely it has their share of the developers. Just a thought, not even a feature request.

~sircmpwn REPORTED INVALID 1 year, 1 month ago

This list is not really used anymore (Fedora and OpenBSD have both been supported for some time now), so I'll close this ticket.

Regarding NetBSD, it's almost done and you can use a crappy version of it today if you please. However, I am depending on someone from the NetBSD community to help me put a bow on it. The NetBSD image needs to be able to generate itself, repeated ad naeseum, but the script I've prepared today fails to expand the size of the image on the first boot, meaning each subsequent image generated by the previous generation is smaller than the last and it eventually breaks.

As for Haiku, I'd be interested in having Haiku support for sure, but I'm not sure what the state of unattended Haiku installations is today.
