Building B2G OS for Geeksphone Peak


(Helmar Gerloni) #1

Finally i was able to build and flash the transition branch (pine/kanikani) on Debian Linux for my Peak.

pine is still affected by bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/1264226 . The bug was fixed in master a few day ago, so after a “cp gecko/security/sandbox/linux/SandboxFilter.cpp pine/security/sandbox/linux/SandboxFilter.cpp” ./build.sh was successful. Maybe someone can apply the change also to the pine branch.

On http://www.gerloni.net/gp-peak/ you can find my master builds, When I find the time I’ll upload a pine/kanikani build. But i guess i have to switch to blob free builds…

Helmar.

I forwarded your request to the engineering manager that does merging into
pine

Thanks for doing this, however, I would not suggest investing time into the Peak right now. It’s an old ICS device, not very powerful compared to what we have now. The most problematic part is the ICS one, since it is probably going to be removed very soon (I know it adds a lot of complexity with special paths and hacks all over graphics).

Now also a transition build is online.

Thanks for this. It would be very nice if you could make a blobfree build and then make it available through the B2G Installer Addon :slightly_smiling:

I’ll try, but it will take a few days…
