  openSUSE ARM in chroot
posted by czp on 24th July 2009

Today another important milestone: openSUSE ARM binaries run in chroot. This is the base system, just enough for bootstrapping and compiling packages. It can't even boot on its own, as some packages are missing, like udev & Co.

The chroot environment is actually a byproduct of osc, the command line client for the openSUSE Build Service. It is also able to do local builds, and for that it creates a chroot environment.

And a mandatory copy&paste:

root@ubuntu:~# chroot suse
suse:/> gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
