    Announce: Debian Stretch (fork) for Galileo

    tjstachecki

      Hi all,

       

      I just got a Gen2 board last week and have been bootstrapping Debian Stretch to Galileo. It looks like I'll be able to get it to work.

       

      Here's a little breakdown of what I've tackled so far:

      - Restore i586 support after Stretch dropped it -- see: Defaulting to i686 for the Debian i386 architecture

      - Began recompilation of base packages with += -Wa,-momit-lock-prefix=yes -march=pentium -mtune=i486

       

      I still need to:

      - Rebuild and tinker with libc and the kernel to reenable i586 support (and build the kernel without lock prefixes)

      - Finish building about ~50 more packages for the complete list of packages required for a base system


      The big caveat is that this is more or less a fork of Debian and is entirely unsupported by Debian proper.

       

      Hopefully I'll have a downloadable rootfs within the next week!
