I just learned of Buildroot: a utility that builds /root and beyond! Other SBC platforms have their configs included in the bundle, we should figure out what our’s is and have it included. Radxa, help!: contributing this would help with uptake of the Rock Pi 4. I was able to derive a _defconfig file from the Linaro 7.4.1 runtime here https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/latest-7/aarch64-linux-gnu/ but the formatting was off. Maybe something for Python to do a word replace on. I deleted the files because it was a failed kernel build but following this development guide gets you there https://wiki.radxa.com/Rockpi4/dev/kernel-4.4 . You may need to
apt-get install curses or
apt-get install ncurses if
make menuconfig fails but it doesn’t matter for our purposes here as you’ll have the _defconfig file by this point. git pull buildroot/buildroot and have a look at the files in the /config directory, the information is what we need but the variable names need chaging. I’ve only just learned about Buildroot so I’m unsure how to proceed. Maybe we have a member of the forum who has more experience using Buildroot.
Basically, I’m trying to get a GNOME or KDE Manjaro-ARM https://manjaro.org/download/ GUI on the RockPI4 config from Radxa.
