Update for 2018

The only thing missing right now is a i386 Tumbleweed JeOS image. With that we should be good. Any help on that is highly appreciated.

Update for 2017

The source code for crouton needs to be fixed up and pushed again to see if it gets accpeted upstream. We should be near (TM).


old description

[edit] After some discussions it seems more reasonable to get crouton to be able to build a openSUSE chroot, so I will look into this. If that's to easy/hard/boring I will fallback to some lowlevel kernel/uboot hacking :) [/edit]

With the chromebook R13 [1] the first arm64 based laptop style HW is available. The idea is to enable openSUSE on it. Lot's of things have to be done here:

  • find out how the image has to look like and build an image
  • forward port the patches needed to get graphics et al working
  • enable the mt8173 SoC in u-boot

Looking for hackers with the skills:

      I'm able to get a basic xfce desktop up and running, code can be found at: https://github.com/mbgg/crouton/tree/opensuse-v2

      Try: sudo sh crouton -r tumbleweed -t xiwi,xfce,cli-extra sudo startxfce4 -X xiwi-tab

      Needs to get merged to the official project though
