thread
Quote:
As we’ve been growing and working with more partners, the
need to support board specific builds and improve
our tools has become more urgent. In order to get there more quickly
we’ve been investigating several different build tools. We found that
the Portage build tools suit our needs well and we will be
transitioning 100% within the next week.
To date, we’ve completed the following
- cross compiling from source for both ARM and X86 targets
- support for vendor/board specific builds
- the builds are automated and are running on our buildbot
- the docs are ready and you can get started with the new build today
We still have a lot more work to do before we’ll be satisfied with
where we’re at, but over the next week our goal will be to get
everything working perfectly with the new build system.

if they could provide some devs working on ebuilds or providing some stuff - it would be even better

let's see how this develops :wink:

That was my first thought. How nice would it be if the google devs started contributing ebuilds, or creating improvements for portage.

This is very interesting and potentially exciting news.

Why don't we team up and go trolling into their thread telling them they should use paludis instead?

Why not team up and tell them to require Gentoo Linux instead of Ubuntu Linux?

The same recommendation from Google for the Android Development Plug-in of Eclipse. But it's normal. Ubuntu is a friendly-distro. Ideal for Java and Python programmers without knowledge in the "Linux fundamentals" (kernel, packages, system tools, etc.) but Gentoo is one of the preferred by the kernel and embedded systems geeks.

Don't need no stinking maxipad and I can build for it with a familiar tool.

Oh, I hope it comes to pass. I'd really like to have an open reader for all of the stinking pdfs in my life. I can only take so much of them on my laptop.

hopefully it won't be too thick, too heavy and low in battery-runtime (I'm sure Google knows how to make sure of these) :wink:

it doesn't look too bad 8)

If Google makes one of those and really follows through on the "open hardware" aspect of Chrome OS, I will buy one too. Assuming it is reasonably priced.

Open hardware and open software. I don't want to be forced to use Chrome, just in case they start being less careful about the evil they do.

Well that's what I meant. They claimed they wanted only hardware that had open drivers becaue they were going to optimize the boot.

Just making sure :). I'm assuming Chrome will work on it well and stands a better chance of being a smoother experience than any old hacked onto it Linux.

Seems Google want crossdev (cross compile feature) and ability to delivery common build system to every distro.

I tried it in my Gentoo system. They install full functional Gentoo in chroot and it to cross compile specific board target *using portage*.

Ubuntu linux is not requirements anymore.

thanks for the info ! :)



it begins:
Quote:
NSS/NSPR Changes: the libraries for nss and nspr were installed in a
prefix due to collisions with other packages (libssl.a for instance).
Recently, Google decided to use portage for cross-compiling and
managing ChromeOS. This combined with some bugs reported[11][12] with
NSS/NSPR led to some investigation, and a voluntary review[13][14] of
the ebuilds by the nice folks at Google
.

nice !

thanks Google :D

Hopefully the bugs get prompt and effective attention.

News that Google abandoned Gentoo wouldn't be prudent.
