Package building using the stage3 root has reached a point where we have
enough of the needed packages to compose a stage4 root which can build
packages using mock. I have added the start of stage 4 notes at:
On that page are links to tarball snapshots of the stage4 root and
stage3 repo containing the stage 3 RPMs and a simple comps.xml with
a buildsys-build group (and a mockbuilder-root group used to compose
the stage4 root). You have the choice of booting with systemd of with
busybox as the init process. Busybox is noticeably faster because the
systemd daemon eats up cycles on the model which are better saved for
Next steps are a hosted repo so we can do the stage 4 builds with the
script used for the hard float bootstrap:
and some better instructions to make it easier for those wanting to join
in with package building on the way to stage 5.
More info coming soon.
