Hello,

The Guix website now offers Pinebook Pro Guix System images[1]. Those
images can be directly copied on a micro-SD card and booted from. More
details here[2].

Thanks,

Mathieu

Very neat!  Well done!

It seems like I need to write up a hybrid pinebook/pinebook-pro
bootloader definition, then that image could support *two* whole
platforms. :)

It also shouldn't be *too* hard to add support for UEFI too...


Started a discussion about this in June:

  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2021-06/msg00036.html


And recently gave a talk describing this approach for Debian:

  https://salsa.debian.org/vagrant/two-pinebooks-walk-into-a-bar
  https://debconf21.debconf.org/talks/88-two-pinebooks-walk-into-a-bar/

Not sure how soon the video will be available, but the talk had
technical difficulties at the start, so I hope to get a chance to do it
all over again someday. :)


live well,
  vagrant

Something like this, but that is valid guile and actually works :)

Hello,

I managed to build a Guix System image with the Sway WM for the Pinebook
Pro. The image is quite large (~6GiB) but it is bootable and works fine.

Here are the steps I followed:

* I built a cross-compiled barebones Pinebook Pro image as described in
  my previous email.

* I used that image to turn the Pinebook Pro into an offload machine.

* From my main x86_64 machine, I ran the following command:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix system image ~/tmp/pinebook.scm -s aarch64-linux
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The pinebook.scm file is attached.

* I flashed the image and booted from it, exactly like for the
  cross-compiled image.

This is an interesting first step as generating desktop images for ARM
devices is really convenient.

Using the ARM machine as an offload machine to build a native ARM image
from an Intel machine is less convenient though. I would really like to
be able to build this same image using cross-compilation. The recent
series sent by Maxime are making this goal more realistic.

Thanks,

Mathieu

I've been looking at this a bit since I'm actually nearing the point of
having something to write for the HiFive Unmatched. write-file-on-device
can be called multiple times, we've only needed it twice for all the
other cases though.

This could probably be (very untested)

(define install-pinebook-and-pinebook-pro-u-boot
  ;; Install bootloaders for both the pinebook and pinebook pro at compatible
  ;; offsets.
  #~(lambda (bootloader-pinebook-pro root-index image)
      (let ((spl (string-append bootloader-pinebook "/libexec/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin"))
            (u-boot (string-append bootloader-pinebook "/libexec/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.fit.itb"))
            (idb (string-append bootloader-pinebook-pro "/libexec/idbloader.img"))

I wonder how much diskspace savings you might get by leaving out the
display manager... I typically just login from the console and run "exec
sway". I *think* the last image I generated for that was more like 2GB,
though my memory is fallable, and maybe misses various other standard
desktop packages (e.g. web browser).

    (initrd-modules '())
    (kernel linux-libre-arm64-generic)

I have since figured out how to use the regular "linux-libre" kernel and
which modules to add to the initrd... I'll try to dig those up.

Indeed!

Have fully native builds been fixed yet with "guix system image" ? That
has been a blocker forme from trying it out. I haven't been booting my
x86 guix installation lately, mostly just using the pinebook pro, so it
is ironic I haven't been able to make a pinebook pro image. :)

Awesome news! Thanks to all involved!

Yeah SDDM drags Xorg between other things, I could definitely get rid of
it.

That would be nice. I also came across to the issue you reported here:
https://issues.guix.gnu.org/48266. We definitely need to do something
about it. Building this initrd modules list is quite painful. I'll try
to think about it.

Hehe, that's a shame indeed. I'm working on it as a follow-up of
https://issues.guix.gnu.org/45020. I'll propose a patch soon.

Thanks,

Mathieu

Theoretically, it would be possible to write a SDDM service supporting
wayland only AFAIK.  But if you'll only use sway, it makes little sense
to have a login manager indeed.
