Thanks Adrian.

It does build but it does not boot due to a known problem which should have
been fixed by Marcus in kiwi.
But, I will create another thread for that.

Strike! :)

happy testing!

PS: I noticed that the image name contains armv7l string, even though
it is build with armv6 rpms.

The main reason we don't have an official Raspberry PI image today is
that the build fails:

The build fails because the kernel we're using inside the build VM
doesn't have proper FAT support. There are 2 things to do here:
btw, I added lately support to run distro kernel and initrd's. So such
things can
be added now in projects.

You may just try to aggregate the (x86_64) kernel package from

home:adrianSuSE kernel-obs-build

package and add the following line prjconf to use that kernel:

VMInstall: kernel-obs-build

Make sure to ExportFilter this also to your arm architecture repos.

shall I try to adapte this project to validate if it works?
We also need to force the codepage modules into the initrd so that it
automatically loads them on boot (via -m). But yes, please :).
yes, it is already added there.

It is setup in the project now, but no build starts, because
of dependency issues in openSUSE:Factory:ARM atm.
You could try to setup 13.1 repo instead: devel:ARM:13.1:Contrib:RaspberryPi
okay, same applied there. (Check prjconf, the kernel-obs-build aggregate and
additional x86_64 arch in project setup, in case you want to see my changes).

It is not a good idea to aggregate from my personal home project on the long
but you may want to wait for a kernel-obs-build package in factory before
you change that.

In case you want to run local builds, you need a latest version "build"
package, eg.
from openSUSE:Tools project and you need to build with kvm or xen, eg:

osc build --vm-type=kvm images armv6l

otherwise the kernel and initrd will not be used.
