    Creating a distro for ARM


    Hello,

    So I have ARM A9 board and I am trying to create a distro for it. Suse
    Studio does not appear to support it and I was recommended to Kiwi but I
    am a bit confused as where to start with Kiwi. Meaning what should I
    download and initializing the process. I am doing this for an open
    source digital signage project. If anyone can help me or guide me in the
    right way that be great. The board I am using is: HummingBoard i2eX.

    What I'd probably do is use SUSE Studio to create a kiwi configuration
    file, and then look through that to see what tweaks are needed to get an
    ARM version built automatically.

    The other option would be to run through the installation on the first
    board and generate a kiwi file from that installation (I'm assuming
    you're building more than one of these devices).

    That is very helpful. But how do I run Kiwi script once I get the
    installed distro the way I'd like it?

    https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:KIWI is probably the best starting place
    for working with Kiwi.
