I tried to use it, and I faced an issue where the rootfs wasn't big enough for the new packages I wanted to install in https://github.com/hypriot/image-builder-rpi/blob/master/builder/chroot-script.sh , so I guess you should base your image on another root-fs. I didn't investigate though, since we had to deliver and had only 5pis, we just flashed a new image from a running syste
but I want to automate it too for later

I have a question for the channel: what is the best way to add a static nameserver in hypriot?
play with avahi conf, resolvconf, /etc/network/interfaces, dhclient.conf ?
I'm on a network where the nameserver is really bad and it is set by dhcp, I wanted to use the google nameserver insstead

the root-fs is only a tar archive with the filesystem the image size is defined in https://github.com/hypriot/image-builder-raw

Yes @firecyberice , you're right, it was the raw that was limiting I think

@dolanor Thanks for the pointer… i had looked through that briefly, but didn’t get very far, I will reread. My goal would be to actually eliminate the need to have an actual RPI in the build pipeline, is this possible?

I built it on my xps13 ubuntu box, it bases itself on the rootfs, and the img. It uses qemu to actually do actions in an arm emulation

@dolanor - For a "static nameserver" wouldn't you just make entries in your /etc/hosts file?
