I’m have some experience with Linux, and I work as Field Application Engineering (FAE) include mixed signal hardware design / bare metal firmware / OS porting (AGL and QNX). So that why I want to help porting volumio 2 to beaglebone black (I just love industrial product).
After some research then I need your help to find out the right way:
As I know there’re some script for build beaglebone black but in the build.sh file which call bbbimage.sh then it’s will copy some platform file ???( dont know what is it?, Linux kernel for BBB?) on github.com/volumio/platform-bbb.git . And because this git is empty then after I try to build the image output of BBB have bootloader empty.
So can I try to doing like this first just to make the volumio 2 running on BBB (and get experience before writing build script?)
- build Beaglebone black kernel source
- build all packages
MPD by Max Kellerman
Shairport-Sync by Mike Brady
Node.JS by Ryan Dahl
SnapCast by Badaix
Upmpdcli by Justin Maggard
Then build volumio 2 based on that
- Would you minght to teach me how to create platform for bbb ? what is it? what it’s for?
Thank for your time
